Dear Mr. Van Aken.
While thinking about my father's passing yesterday, I decided to do a new search on a family bible I once saw on ebay in 2007. It was listing # 5673180607. The original message I sent to RWelch in FL, USA is pasted below.I never received a reply.
I am looking for anything related to an old family tale I had heard about an ancestor named 'Hawk' based on his marriage to a Native American woman (I believe from a Blackfoot Tribe). I recently saw in thread that you may have purchased that bible on Ebay. I was wondering if you might still have it?
Thanks for any help you have on this matter.
I was hoping to have a boy after the birth of my daughter, because I am the last male in my line. I am 41, and this 'Benton' branch sadly ends with me.
Thanks for any information you may have about this bible.

I was wondering if you still possessed the Joseph G Benton bible circa 1858?
If not I was hoping you might know who bought it from you.
I found an old listing on EBAY after doing some research on a long since gone relative named Hawk Benton.
It was listing # 5673180607
I'd really appreciate anything you might still know about this bible. I realize your inventory is HUGE, but anything would help.
