Benjamin Franklin Durham
I found the 1940 census for 1940 Census Ward 3, Kellogg, Kellogg Election Precinct 2, Shoshone, Idaho, United States.

Franklin Durham is living with his son Charles Durham. He is 63 years old born in Kentucky.

Benjamin Franklin Durham
I have done some research for you. This isn't my family. I am a little confused on which person your are referring to in your questioning.

However, this is what I have found out.

Draft records: Name Benjamin Franklin Durham. He was drafted in Ohanogan County Washington. He was born July 26, 1876. It doesn't state where he was born.

Draft records for the most part have the name correct.

Death records: Has Frank Durham Died June 29, 1948 in Seattle, Washington. In King County. Estimated birth of 1877. He was 71 years 11 months 3 days.

His parents are Robert Durham and Ellen (Cox) Durham. Death certificate gives parents names.

I can't find any marriage records in the state of Washington under Benjamin or Frank or under Ada Easterling.

I can't find him in Find A Grave.

The 1940 Clearview Election Precinct, Snohomish, Washington, United States has Ada living with Frank Durham and they have the following children: Newton Durham. A grandchild by the name of Patricia Sommers is living with them. Newton is 29 years old born in Washington and so is Patricia. Ada is born in Kentucky and is 55 years old. and estimated birth is 1887. Frank is born in Kentucky also and is 63 years old.

The 1930 Parcuvia, Lewis, Washington, United States has Ada living with husband Frank B. Durham. They have the following children: Newton,Elsie and Bertha all born in Washington. Ages 18, 14, 12. Just gives Ada born in USA.

This family gets bigger as I go back in years.
1920 Census Ada is living with Benjamin F. Durham and their 6 children: Mammie, Charles, Newton, Elsie, Bertha, and Nina. Nina died young. I found her records also.

Anyway, the 1920 census states she was born in 1885 in Kentucky. Ada's middle initial is "M".

Oh, went back on Nina's death certificate. Her mother's middle name is Margaret. Nina died 07 Aug 1921 in Winthrop, Okanogan, Washington. She was 1 year 10 months and seven days old.

Still looking for more information. Funny how I keep finding Ada under the name of Easterling and not Durham except on the census.

I hope what I have found so far helps a little. I am sure you know most of this information.
