BY: F. W. BEERS, 1880

CHARLES J. BENEDICT was born in Perry, Wyoming Co., NY, March 20th, 1823, and was married in 1850 to FLORILLA HURD, daughter of Samuel and Orilla Canfield. They have three children; Frank C. Benedict, born in 1851; Harriet E. Benedict, born in 1856, and Frederick Graham Benedict, born in 1868. Mr. Benedict has been highway commissioner three years. During the war, unable to go to the front, he furnished a substitute. His father, Graham Benedict, whose ancestors came from England, was born in Woodbury, CT, in 1785; married Luia Hicks, in 1814; settled in Perry, where he cleared land and lived in a log cabin, in 1814, and died Jan. 13th, 1862. He was a member of the Episcopal church. Mrs. Benedict's father, Samuel Canfield, was born in Arlington, VT, in 1798, and was married in 1827 to Aurelia Canfield, daughter of Albert and Salome Canfield. His father died at seventy-six, and his mother at seventy-nine. She died in 1870.

I have no further information on this family. The source of where this information was obtained is listed at the top of this posting.
