Bernard "Dick" Benner (1875 to 1978)
Posted by: Gina Imboden (ID *****2855) Date: August 26, 2003 at 15:56:43
  of 179

Hello. I'm researching genealogical information about my family, and though I am able to find a wealth of information about my deceased Grandmother, maiden name: Mary Lurana "Lura" Van Horne; there is almost nothing listed about my Grandfather, Bernard Benner, who passed away in September of 1978, in Berkshire, Massachusetts.

This is what I've gathered to date:

Bernard Benner
(known as "Dick" by his friends)

BD 12 June 1895
Birthplace:?

Name of parents:?
I am primarily interested in his Mother's name, as I heard an interesting fact about her decendancy

Son: George Bernard Benner
There was also a daughter Pauline, and her brother from my Grandmother's first marriage.

I know my Grandfather was a newspaper man, and lived in Denver for many years. On Lincoln Ave? My Grandmother's death was listed in Arapahoe County. He was also an aspiring cartoonist, and made personalized greeting cards that delighted his friends.

Thank you for any assistance!

Gina Imboden
