Author: unity3030 Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.benford/64.1/mb.ashx Message Board Post: My grandmother tells me that there were two sets of Benfords. One set were owned by the Benford Family and the other set were born to slave women from free Benford men. I am told that there were a group of brothers that could "pass" and were allowed to leave. As they traveled, they decided to seperate. A free Benford that was in Arkansas married a woman named Sarah. Him and Sarah moved to Texas. They didn't take on slaves but paid the servants (what i read) This is the line that I come from. My grandmother actually met my grandfather's grandfather and she described him as a very tall irish man with bright red hair and a bright red beard. She said this man was huge. My family starts out at 6'4. The Benfords are recorded as coming through Ellis Island and being from Ireland. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

Author: lenjohn11 Surnames: Benford, Roach, Jenkins-(grandma's married name), nelson Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.benford/64/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Looking for information about the Tchula, Mississippi Benfords. My maternal great-grandfather is Frank Benford. My grandmother is Inez Jenkins, her sisters are Lula Pearl, Essie B, Louise Blue. They had a brother, Frank Jr. who went away, and never went back to Mississipp. We were told that he went to California. Upon research he was probably in military. I am interested in how the Benfords came upon Tchula. I believe Frank Sr. was born in Arkansas, and died in Mississippi. I believe that the lineage possibly just slave owners were the Brandts' and Benfords'. Please help, this is fun. 13 years ago there was a Benford Family Reunion in Detroit. But I am very much interested in learning the Paternal Bendord side. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

Author: gillen5271 Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.benford/49.1.1.1.1/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Thank you for the information on Walter Copson Benford and Arthur Copson Benford. Since I started the family tree and searches for information I have often wondered about that. Every time I searched the censuses it appeared that there was no such person as my grandfather's father as shown on his marriage certicate as Joseph Copson Benford, deceased. Anything I found on my searches seemed to indicate that something was not quite right about the names. I can only guess that my grandfather and his brother Arthur came to Canada to start a new life and very rarely talked about their life in England. You have broken down a wall I have had for a long time. Thank you. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

Author: gillen5271 Surnames: Benford Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.benford/49.1.1/mb.ashx Message Board Post: I am the granddaughter of Walter Copson Benford and Helen (Scattergood)Benford who were both born in Leicester. They were married August 1902. Walter and his brother, Arthur Copson Benford came to Canada after Walter's marriage. Walter and Arthur came first due to the fact that Arthur's wife was expecting a child. The two wives came later. My mother, Doris Benford, was born in London, Ontario Canada in 1905, so they came to Canada between 1902 and 1904. I have found on the free BMD a Pheobe Copson Benford born 1869 in Leicester. Walter spoke of a Phoebe and we think she is a sister. I have never been able to find anything on any census or other searches I have done. Walter's father on his marriage certificate states his name was Joseph Copson Benford, deceased. I also believe his mother's name may have been Sarah.
