Re: Benjamin and William(Butler)Masters
I descend from a sister of Ellen, Mary "Jane" Masters who married Thomas E. Willis. Ellen & Jane were the daus. of John S. & Christina (Peterson) Masters. Apparently John S. is the son of Benjamin, born 1812 in Ohio.
Thomas & Jane's dau. married James "Lewis" Knox. There is another Knox member that married a Washburn.
