Benjamin Fithian had a popular name throughout the Fithian
Family History. I doubt if the Benjajim Fithian that you are alluding to is the same as the one that I gave information on. He (Benjamin) that was the brother of my
great-grandfather Charles, were the sons of Benjamin and
Margaret(Catt) Fithian. They, Charles and Benjamin had a sister (Dorcas A. R. Scott) and also a sister Mary. For some reason brothers named their children after each other.
Mary was living with brothers Benjamin and Charles in Knox
County Indiana after leaving Jasper County, IL. Benjamin might have been known as Job, as in Benjamin J. Fithian, and
on a document his mark, Job Fithian. Are you totally confused? Most of the information that I have given you was taken from information in Jasper Co., IL.
