Benjamin was born in 1856. He passed away in 1931. [1]

The following story needs documented proof.
Family tradition says that Benjamin Klink left Missouri because of a rift with his family. One living family member had been told that Ben was an abolitionist in a pro-slave region and that strong political opinions caused the rift. Other family members suggested that Ben was in trouble with the law. In any case, about 1879 Benjamin Klink left Missouri for Minnesota where he worked at one time for a man whose name was Hinkle. This man took Ben "under his wing" and eventually Ben assumed the last name of Hinkle. Ben apparently stayed in contact with some of his Klink family and the family retains photos of Ben.
