Dr. Benjamin David Hennington - Family Group Record update


Here is an update for research we've been doing on the Dr. Benjamin David Hennington family. For months we've had only names and dates for Benjamin's children. Thankfully, there are new spouse names, dates and burial information, plus tombstone photos from http://www.findagrave.com/

In the coming days I'll be posting more Family Group Sheets on Benjamin's children that we have completed so far. Here's hoping I can resume my genealogy blog posting for this year.
(it's at least a goal!) Thanks to those blog readers for their earlier comments. Larry and I always appreciate the feedback.
