I don't know of any record of Benoni Mills's birth. I notice that on the 1810 Guilford County census he is aged over 45, which means that he was born before 1765. And in 1830 in Wayne County, Indiana, he is between 70 and 80,which would put him born between 1750 and 1760.Birth in 1759 or early 1760 would be consistent with both, and with the disownment of Thomas and Charity Mills.Tom Hamm
