There are two George Benson's married within 10 months of each other in Grates Cove (see George Benson), both on the same records sheet. I've tried my best to determine who was who, but there are a number of contradictory accounts of the family, and different trees assign them differently.
To add to the general confusion, there are two children, born to a George and Mary Benson, born in the two years before their marriage was recorded. It's possible this was not unheard of, when preachers were rare? A premarriage "marriage" might explain why her maiden name was recorded as Benson. Otherwise, she may have been a cousin.
