Benbrook Family Group Sheets

There are two researchers who are particularly credited with most of the work on the Benbrook family: Carol Gothberg and Beth Fyans. I met Carol Gothberg probably twenty years ago through correspondence on this family. We must be particularly indebted to her for the work in England and vital records obtained in New Jersey. Beth Fyans has had databases on Rootsweb and Ancestry. Her work is meticulously footnoted, but I regret that my genealogy program sometimes insists on truncating her files.

There are still large gaps in the descendants of William Benbrook. I hope that anyone who finds this work useful will contribute what they can.

I fiddled and fiddled with it trying to clear the spot on Catharine's face, but it only looked worse after. Original is terribly faded and very small.
