I have no data to confirm or deny your information. It sounds like we are talking about the same family line. The marriage date of 1862 would mean that, if this is the Elias I have in my records, he would have been about 36 years old at the time of his marriage to Mary. Make sure that there was not an Elias Benn Sr. and an Elias Benn Jr. Also, see if you can find out if Elias was married more than once. Childbirth killed a lot of women in those days.
