This is the daughter of Thomas and Nancy Benton. On the other side of the tombstone is her sister Carrie B Benton. Sadly, they both died on the same day. The stonemason incorrectly carved the name Benson. That stone reads Carrie B Benson, daughter of T J & N C Benson. A check of the 1900 census finds Thomas J Benton and wife Nancy living in Woods County, Alva, Oklahoma.
