Marie Wilhelmine Charest, daughter of Vital Charest and Adele Parent, was born and baptized on 21 Nov 1872 at Saint Patrice in Rivière du Loup, Québec, Canada. She married Isaac Knudsen Berntsen on 26 Nov 1889 at Saint Patrice. They apparently changed the family name to Benson, as that is the name used in death and cemetery records, as well as obituaries. Wilhelmine was widowed in 1919. She died at age 80 and was interred in Saint Peter's Cemetery in Lewiston, Androscoggin, Maine.

Sources include the Drouin Collection (Québec vital and church records), census records, cemetery records, and the Lewiston Evening Journal 17 Apr 1953.
