Re: Bente family of Cleveland, O.
If I can't help, my cousin may be able to.We're both Bente's by birth.
My dad, Delvert Eugene Bente, was born in 1934, in Dennison, Ohio, to Francis Stewart Bente, son of Christ---usually mispelled as Christian---and Florence Auld Bente.Not sure where the connection may be but I know my g/father Francis, had several brothers.Waldama, Thomas, and Carl were some. One was killed in a railroading accident.Most of the Bente's on this side were railroaders, by the way.
Let me know if any of that helps.
