Benjamin was born about 1813. He was the son of Yost Miller and Gertrude Yoder. He passed away about 1877.
Added 8 Feb 2018 by Francis E. Berkey (Berkey-120) filling in information from G&K A&A/M Genealogies and DJH by Rev. Harvey Hostetler, D.D. Benjamin is AKA ML2216+ and was married to Mary Mast AKA MS3651 & DJH-5058, They were the parents of 11 children.
Personal family information both written and from family Bibles gathered over several years of travel and library research. Original edition The Berkey Book and also 2nd edition which has many Berkeys that I personally researched as well as Line 26 which is started with Orange Grove Berkey. This is as close as our branch comes but in Line 3 appears his younger sister, Catherine Winchester Berkey who married Joseph Hochstetler who is DJH-4263. This was actually a mistake on the part of the informant named Wade Miller whose mother was a Berkey and since Catherine was in the household of Jacob Berkey he thought she was his daughter but she was not. Many of my relatives are in Descendants of Jacob Hochstetler first published in 1912 by Rev. Harvey Hostetler, D.D. long before personal computers.
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Benjamin by comparing test results with other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Benjamin:
