Great thread. I'm not sure who Walter and Nellie are, which generation and location. Hi to Bob Benn in Quincy. We are a family that sticks to certain given names, for sure.

But of course there are two Bob Benns, and the Fredericton one is from Mary Ellen's branch. The Mason connection is the giveaway here. We're the Hodgdon/Debec branch, from Catherine (circa 1820 before the border issues that actually split the family [Baked Bean War, Webster-Ashburton Treaty 1842, American Revolutionary War]).

Yes, I'm Bob's son.
