In my notebook of information on Athens and Brighton I have found the 1864 voters for Athens which list Reuben, Cryus S. and Cryus. Census of 1910 list a Cryus. Is it possible that Ben was a nickname as I find an Eben in Athens in 1850 through 1880.
I am searching the line of Richard York but I do not have any of your names in that line.
It seems to be a difficult family name to search.
