Hi, Robert,

I've been in touch with your sister Elizabeth and we've been comparing notes about the Knysna Benns. My grandfather was Roland Benn who, I think I remember my father, Norman Benn, telling me, was a cousin of Reuben, but I don't know who Roland's father was. He was definitely of the Knysna Benns and grew up on Benn Street at the beginning of the 20th century. "Curious Fox" genealogy site has him listed as the son of John Benn (Conning's father). During my childhood in the 50s-60s, my father would talk about all the other Knysna Benns and took me to see the signalman's house. Your sister says that you have a photo of Connie and his siblings. Would it be possible to scan it and email it to me as an attachment? My address is
Many thanks,
Sandra Chait (Benn)
