Origin of the name Benson

According to Forebears.co.uk the Benson "surname is derived from the name of an ancestor, 'the son of Bennet' i.e. Benedict. I assume the majority of people with this surname in Canada, the United States, and probably Australia have their forebears in England, Ireland, and Scotland.

Found my Father in here but his name is incorrect and my mother. I couldn’t recall their birth year. My Sister Marlene was married in 1955, not 1959. Her first child Kathryn was born in 1957.

My fathers name was Ralph Emory Benson, not Emerson.

I'm sorry, I don't know why I am listed for this project. I'm going to delete my name from it.

BUT, you need to contact the person that created the profile for your father and let them know, and give them documentation that shows the correct information.

Hi - I just created a space page for a Benson source, so you may want to take a look.
