Thank you Frank,

I was already familiar with those you have listed because I also am a member of Find A Grave. But still trying to connect to Susanna as wife to prove parentage to James Benjamin as this is the brick wall for me. I have only the baptism record with parents name as in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The hard part is I only have a guess-tamation on Alexander and Susanna's births and if they were born here in America is unknown. Birth name of Susanna unknown.


I will keep searching --Thank you so much Frank
