I am his grandson, I just discovered. I too am looking for info on the Benjamin part of my family that I know nothing about. My father, David Wallace Benjamin, born in Troy, N.Y, on March 31st, 1941 just found his original birth certificate, and Hobart LeGrand Benjamin is listed as his father. What little I do know is that my grandmother, Loretta Amberson/Gunther worked for the Benjamin family, cleaning their home in Morris, N.Y, and this is how Hobart and her met. She has kept secret the details of his and her relationship, and as to why the Benjamin side of my family is a mystery. So any info that could help explain why my father never met his father, and my 2 brothers and I will never meet are grandfather, would be awesome, but not neccessary Just any minor details, like what you have given us here, are things we never new about him, and anything else would be more than appreciated. Thanks!
