Sylvia Benton has French origins.
Sylvia Benton is a Project Member of the Military and War subproject World War II


Born in North Carolina. The next 4-5 years spent with an Army Dad, going from North Carolina to Alabama to Germany to Washington to Georgia and finally to Virginia, where I stayed from the age of 6 to 21. Then I returned to North Carolina.

I have a branch of family that was part of the movement of Moravians down the Great Wagon Road into North Carolina. I love visiting their graves and seeing the headstones written in German.

My French lineage actually comes from Alsace-Lorraine, Ingersheim, France, Calvados, Lion-sur-mir, France and Calvados, Hermanville, France. I became quite proficient at searching the Calvados Archives and the Haut-Rhin Archives. My Irish lineage comes from Londonderry, Ireland. John Glen immigrated around 1750 and settled in Lincoln County, North Carolina. Soon after, the name began to appear as Glenn.

Hi, I just now copied your original message about "New Member How-To" and I will look at the video. I wrote quite a message of Liz, but have not received a reply; maybe I did something wrong. I met with her several years ago at a library in Loudoun Co., VA. You are quite young, I will be 84 in a few weeks. I am not at all happy that information has been added to some of my ancestors, mainly because I do not agree with some of it. I really do not see a problem with more than one entry for a person. That way we can all decide which entry we believe to be correct. I did ask that my name be taken off in regards to one person. I noticed that someone had put up a notice not to change their information without being contacted. I believe it is INCORRECT to change anyone's information. If I have something I think will help, I post a comment. There are so many errors in all the genealogy sites, and I might be responsible for some of them. I know when I first started I took someone else's research from a book, but later found it was most likely incorrect. I am now trying to add sources I did not put in when I first entered someone in WikiTree. Mostly, I love it, except for the few things I have mentioned.
