Fidella Church, daughter of Edward L Church, married Samuel Benson in Wisconsin. They moved to Iowa, where Samuel is buried. She married Jeremiah Madison, he died, and she married Albert Charles December 20, 1905, where they moved from Iowa to Oklahoma. There is a newspaper obituary near her death date that says Mrs. Albert Charles died and is to be buried in Star Cemetery.

Fidella Benson and Samuel Benson were the parents of James Henry Benson, who married Rosetta Jane Charles, daughter of Albert Charles. Fidella had two other children Robert Lewis Benson, who is buried in Iowa, and Samuel Emory Benson who is buried in Star Cemetery. James Henry Benson is buried in Star Cemetery. Della is believed to be buried in the unmarked grave next to Albert Charles. Marriage record to Albert shows her name as Della Madison.

If you look on the left side of Albert Charles headstone, you will see the word wife etched in the cement slab the stone sits on. There is a Ladies of the Grand Republic of the Army where Della is buried. Albert Charles did serve in the Civil War, which is needed to be in the Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic.
