I just got back from a trip east, through Oklahoma, visited the cherokee nation, also went to Benge, Ky, where there are a lot of Benges living in London KY, which is near Benge Ky. There is a Benge cemetery, named for Sherman Benge. I still am trying to make sure this was my lineage, but this was a very interesting trip. I got the book on the Trail of Tears. If interested, let me know.
