updated info:

Samuel Benson Atkinson b. 27 May 1865 in Hawick

parents were: James b. 1821 in England and Elizabeth Bailey Benson b. 1826. I don't know where in England they are from.

He married Mary A. ?? (unknown maiden name) who was b. abt 1876 England (don't know where exactly).

Samuel came to America in April 1891 through Philadelphia (on a ship named Canadian). He went to Iowa and married before 1900. His wife is listed as Anna M. (instead of Mary A....but I'm assuming it's the same woman). Sometime after 1900 and before 1902 he goes to South Africa and has son James. He then comes back to the US and has son James (in MO, I think). By 1910 he is in Colorado. He d. abt 1915 in Colorado.

I am looking for any descendants of this person. I'm willing to share everything I know. I'm also looking for any info on his wife. I'd love to find her maiden name. Email
