I TOTALLY agree with you! My G-g-grandmother was Sally Ann Benefiel(d) Ridgway, daughter of John William and Rebecca Summers Benefiel(d). My Grandfather told my Aunt that it was BENEFIEL but, the "D" has been added here and there throughout the family. I found some time ago that two of the brothers, I think it was Robert and one of his brothers or maybe his father, had argued about some land or something and split the family. One adding the "D" to make the name different. Sad.
Therefor, I feel that we are ALL from the same family and are going around in circles trying to find the correct family trees. I have recently talked to a man who KNEW Evelyn Stout and talked with her often about the different BENEFIEL lines being connected somewhere. He also said that there had been many corrections made on the book since it's first printing and was going to try and get me one from Evelyn's brother. I'll let you know if he finds one, with corrections!
