I was just wondering if there were any pictures of Benjamin Franklin Stemen and Lucinda Conrad Stemen together?I have one of Lucinda with her son, Leroy's family. I found in an old newspaper on line that they had been divorced.
The Lima News Feb 1882 Lucinda Stemen vs. Benjamin F. Stemen et al; divorce granted and alimony of $400.00 granted. The Lima News
Also from the web that Benjamin had married a Sara A Bumgardner on 2-17-1876. Could find no court records on that.
I decend from their son Andrew Jackson Stemen(his daughter Laura Belle Stemen married William Leroy Crawford.William and Laura lived near Elida, Ohio and for a time in Hawarden Iowa, also I believe at one time they had a grocery store in Lima, Ohio.. My father was Harold Raymond Crawford who lived near Elida on a farm just outside of Elida,Ohio but was born in Hawarden, Iowa.
