Hi cousin, thanks for the info. Sadly I dont know much about Mable I learned about her from an aunt of mine (who was Mabel's grand daughter) i only met a few years ago she was the youngest of my dads siblings and passed away soon after we met so I only got to speak with her a few times. My dad rarely spoke about his family so i know very little about his side of the fam out side of my siblings. I do know that Mable did go by Roxie and my aunt said she always kept a very tidy house and baked a lot.

Robert, I found more info about Mabel; some just raises more questions. I hope this gives you a jump start on another family line. Great to find our connection - possibly in more than one way.... I was able to connect her through the generations back to our immigrant Benfer. Oh, and BTW, I have not found the name "Ruby" in any of the sources. Good luck with finding more about everyone else.

Hi we may be related. I am trying to confirm some info my Great Grandmother was Mable Ruby "Roxie" Benefer. Birth: November 11, 1884

Scipio, Seneca County, OH, United States Death: circa May 01, 1972 (83-91) I have her parents as Robert Henry Benfer and Elizabeth Ann Vickery, but some info shows they only had 2 sons. I was hoping you may know some information on her

Gotta love someone who can look at the connections finder and figure out that family relationship! My head is spinning!
posted by Beverly Benfer
I can't. I have to plug it into my Ancestry tree, which currently has 26,291 people on it, and right now I'm adding the closer Harlem Renaissance connections to it. Five years ago, I didn't know the names of my great-grandparents. Now I've got some ancestors back to B.C. on it, some of which can't possibly be correct

We're 22 degrees apart. :) Last names almost alike too.

What an amazing, fascinating "WikiTreer of the Week" of the week you are! I cried thinking about the Vietnam Vets in my family; I need to get them up here and thank you. My best, Maggie
posted by Maggie N.
I know what you mean about crying for them. The soldiers came back from other wars and got ticker tape parades. Now we make a point of thanking vets for their service. But those from the Vietnam War were ostracized. It is way past time to show them some respect too.

Hello Cousin,

I saw your profile on "WikiTreer of the Week" And saw that we were only 14 Degrees separated... That usually means a strong connection. So I checked our relationship and found that you and I are 6th cousins once removed, through our common ancestor Johann Peter Reed (1723 - 1767) Johann Peter Reed.

Beverly, thanks for contacting me regarding Wilson Benfer. I'd rather not be on his profile since there is not a blood connection. That could make for confusion.
Hi Beverly,

It's almost time for the 2019 Source-A-Thon, and I'm excited to be on the Mid-Atlantic Team with you! Good luck with your sourcing tis weekend, and have fun. ~ Star

Thanks Beverly. I have a notepad full of stuff for creating the pages.. I am assuming it is a tidbit.. I am going to remove it to that notepad. and see if anyone misses it, in case they put it there......

Beverly you and I are distant cousins thru the Gates-Maxey lines and I'm struck by how much we resemble each other although I'm now a gray-haired old lady and you're a young 'looker'. This gene thing is pretty interesting. Leigh Anne
