Sylvia Benge

Hello, Thelma:

My wife's maternal grandmother was Rose Ermine Benge. Her Benge ancestors that I have located, so far, are from TX, TN, VA, NC, SC, and there are a couple who were born in Indian Territory. A lot of the Benge family is connected to the Cherokee Nation, so the odds are very high that your Benge grandmother was from Oklahoma.

I have no 'Sylvia' in my wife's Benge line, so far, but I did find a reference to a Sylvia Benge, daughter of James and Elizabeth (Daughterty) Benge and she may have married a man named Johnson. I have no dates or locations on her and did not research further since I found not connection to my wife's line. This little bit of information may be of assistance to you, I hope.

Good hunting;
Emile Clede
