Jane, I don't know if I passed this along earlier, but I have unearthed more info about individuals noted in your message. Eunice Christine appears to be the daughter of William E. Benns, living in Long Beach, CA in 1930. William was born in Texas to Jehu V. and Amanda Bens according to the 9 Jun 1900 Montague, TX census, voting precinct #5. Jehu was born in Alabama, son of Hnery Benns. By 1910, both J.V. and son William are living in Wetumka, Hughes, Oklahoma. William is still with wife Eliza and daughters Eunice and Ruth. The California Death Index lists Eunice Christine Thorpe as dying 17 Jun 1995 in Anaheim and a father with the last name of Benns. Do you have more info on George Henry Benns? Can I get a copy of the pictures you have of Eunice. We may well be talking about two different families but the coincidence of names is remarkable.
