BENN - Ireland, NYC, MA, WA and/or Maine
Posted by: Mary Ellen Date: July 16, 2001 at 14:53:24
  of 512

I'm looking for information on, and other descendants of, Samuel BENN and Elizabeth KINGSLEY of Kilamy, (then Queen's county), Ireland.

Elizabeth and 8(?) children immigrated to NYC c. 1836 to 1850. Samuel either died in Ireland or not too long after arrival in the US.

They seem to have bounced between NYC and central Massachusetts. Some apparently went to Houlton, Maine. Another branch (Dyer) went to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Samuel and Elizabeth's son, Samuel, ended up in Washington state, founding the city of Aberdeen there.

Does anyone have any connection to these people? Mary Ellen
