Benjamin Kilbourn married Lydia Dewey in Illinois in 1852.
Three sons: John, James, Edward, were born to Benjamin's earlier wife, who was Pluma Phelps. She died in 1852 in Jamestown after giving birth to twins. They died also.
When and where were Pluma and Benjamin married?
Benjamin was born about 1802/1804 in Kentucky, grew up in Ross County Ohio. So he was about 50 when he married Lydia.
Was there even a wife earlier than Pluma Phelps?
