Benjamin Franklin Leitch was the son of Thomas Leitch and his wife, Mary Franklin. On 25 December 1841, he married Charlotte Ford. In 1858, he purchased 198 acres of land and built a home in Friendship, Maryland. His home still remains on 2 acres and the balance of his property was sold.

The 9th Regiment of Maryland Infantry of the Union Army was organized in Baltimore, Maryland during June and July of 1863. Ben joined and served as a Private in Company A of the 9th Regiment. The regiment moved to Western Maryland on 6 July 1863 and served there until February of 1864. Two soldiers were killed and 124 men died of disease. It is assumed that Ben was one of those who died. He was not in the 1870 census and his widow, Charlotte had re-married to Thomas Wells.
