Looking for any information on the BENJAMIN family in Kings County. My WOOD Family had a marriage to a William Henry BENJAMIN, born Nova Scotia ca 1814, who moved to Saint John Co, NB in 1836. He had sons, John, James, William, Henry, and Nathan; daus Emma Gertrude, Augusta, Olivia Jane, Theresa.
Family lore says Wm Henry had a brother Joseph who went to Saint John Co with him, but I haven't located him. Supposedly there was a cousin Clarence back in Nova Scotia in the 1960's or 70's.
Wondering if this Clarence might be the one b. 1894, s/o of Melvin BENJAMIN & Ella LIGHTFOOT? Melvin was s/o George BENJAMIN...
Does anyone have info on this family of Wolfville in 1881:?
Nathan BENJAMIN M M 62 English NS
Mary BENJAMIN F M 56 English NS
George BENJAMIN M 22 English NS
Mary BENJAMIN F 29 English NS
Perez BENJAMIN M 17 English NS
This Nathan, b. c1819 would be the right age to be - perhaps - a bro to William Henry BENJAMIN b. c1814.
Any suggestions welcome!!!
