Birth: Nov. 9, 1921
Ingham County
Michigan, USA
Death: Dec. 3, 1921
Ingham County
Michigan, USA

According to my Mother and Uncle Herman, Benjamin died in his sleep in a freshly painted crib. The story is that even though the paint had dried Benjamin may have succumbed to the fumes. I am not sure if that is possible but my grandfather may have carried that guilt to his grave! In the 13+ years I knew my grandfather he never spoke of Ben or showed me his grave. We would go to the cemetery and visit his mother's grave (she died of Influenza 4 Jan 1926). It was a classmate of mine that worked for the city of Mason at the cemetery that told me where Ben was buried. His grave is unmarked located in his maternal great grandfathers family lot. Section H Lot 535.
