Benjamin's first two wives are buried in Arkansas.Lucy is buried in Boswell, Ok. along with Benjamin.Northum and his wife, Ruth, are also buried in Boswell.I would love to know about any descendants of Northum and Ruth.Do you have their obits?
Mary Jane Foreman married Jim Williams and they were my husband's grandparents.I have information concerning this branch of the family, if you are interested.
