Re: Lee Roy Bensken b.1900, d.1991
Hello, I am Rodney Bensken's younger brother Eric.Alva, Lee Roy, and Ralph had another brother, Clarence(sp?), and 2 sisters Ruth and Thelma.Alfred's parents were James W Benskin and Martha (Redman) Benskin. It looks like Alfred changed the name from "i" to "e".Alfred had 4 brothers (Steven, Clares,Joe, and Frank) and 2 sisters (Stella and Grace).From the notes that we have (from a distant relative) Lee Roy had a son named Lenard(sp?).Lenard had " a bunch of children" and had moved to southern Illinois around Mt. Rose.There may be more records in Douglas County, Ilinois.Does this seem to match the information that you have?Are we talking about the same Benskins/Benskens?
