Benjamin John Hirsch
Birth: Jan. 26, 1899

Hyde County
South Dakota, USA
Death: Apr. 11, 1952
McAllen
Hidalgo County
Texas, USA

Ben Hirsch was actually born in 1898 rather than 1900 as stated on his grave marker. He was the son of immigrant parents from Munich, Germany, George and Margaret (Neideger) Hirsch. They settled in South Dakota. He moved to the Rio Grande Valley to farm. He married Frances Savage. They had seven children:

Margaret Elizabeth (my mother)
Phyllis Ann
Benjamin Lee
Mary Veronica
Rose Catherine
Frances Josephine
Joseph Gerard

Ben passed away from complications with asthma. He was a hardworking, loving husband and father. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Mary Veronica, who also died from complications with asthma.

Ben was my grandfather. He passed away when my mother, who was the oldest of the children, was 14 years old.

I named my oldest son after my Grandpa Ben.
