Robert H. Bender, b.1834 PA, lived Starke Co., IN, wife Elvira
I have an original carte de visite photograph of “Robert H. Bender - born March 17, 1834 - died July 2, 1909”, and I’d like to get the picture back to descendants or family members. Photo was taken in Ft. Wayne (Allen Co.) IN, and he looks to be about 45-50 in the picture.
I found Robert H. Bender in the 1900 census for Starke Co., IN, showing same birthdate; his wife was Elvira J., age 55. In 1870 Starke Co. census, he is the County Auditor, age 36, and in 1880 same location, he is a real estate agent, age 46. Find A Grave shows him buried in Knox (Starke Co.) IN.
