I am searching for information on Benning in Bear Creek. These are the names I have from my wife's grandmother in regards to a photo taken in Bear Creek around 1908.
Henry Benning m. Margaret Harves?
with children
William Henry Benning
Harry Benning
Kate Benning
Art Benning
Ed Benning
Emma Benning
Martin Benning
----------------------
William Henry Benning m. Mary Barbara Snyder
with children
Jeanette Benning m. Jack Vernon Dean
Gaylord Benning d. at a year and a half of diptheria
Harlan Benning m. Esther
Lela Benning m. Melvin Miller
Rachel Benning m. Victor Sikerman
----------------------
----------------------
Harry Benning m. ???????? Wife died young
with children
Harold Benning
Corrine Benning
Helen Benning
Nora Benning
----------------------
----------------------
Kate Benning m. Herman Hoffmeier (Hoffmeyer)
with children
Leroy Hoffmeier
Sadie Hoffmeier
-----------------------
-----------------------
The photograph consists of the following:
William Henry, Harlan, Art, Ed, Martin, Herman Hoffmeier, Mary Barabara Snyder, Henry, Corrine, Margaret, Harry, Harold, Kate, Leroy, young girl identified as Emma, Helen, Nora, Sadie.

I am told that Harry Benning was widowed at an early age. Henry and Margaret Benning cared for Harold, Corrine, and Helen, three of Harry's children. Nora, the oldest of Harry's daughters, went to live with her deceased mother's sister.

Any dates or name changes would be appreciated. Margaret's last name may have been Harve; my inlaws are not sure. Also, I do not have the photo scanned yet, but I will email it per request once I have.
Thank you.
Shawn
