662. Benjamin6 FLANDERS (256.Jacob5, 139.Benjamin4, 107.Thomas3, 98.Steven, II2, 97.Steven, I1) was born 1800 in Ontario Co., NY Title: 1850 Nelson Co., KY Census Records.Benjamin died 1856 in Nelson Co., KY, at the age of 56 Title: Nelson Co., KY Census Records. NOTES for Benjamin: Benjamin Flanders is known to have been in Kentucky by 1818, due to the deed abstracts of Hardin and Larue Counties, and the Marriage record of his marriage to Sally Dewitt, 9 March, 1821. George's son Benjamin had not been born yet, so it had to be this George. Additionally, Hardin Co., Ky Marriage Records 1820-1829 record the following: Benjamin Flanders and Sally Dewitt. Surety provided by George Flanders, man's brother. Nancy Dewitt, girl's mother gave consent. Witnesses: William Albert, Delance Marvin, and Mary Dewitt. Service conducted by S. Parker. Note: William Albert is the stepson of George Washington and the son of Asenath Skinner Albert Flanders, by her former husband. It is possible that Sally's name was Sarah Elizabeth or Sally Elizabeth, due to the fact that she is listed in the 1850 census with her husband as E. Flanders, age 35. Another possibility is that he was married twice and his first wife died. However, there is no evidence that he was ever married again. So, it is the belief of this researcher to lean heavily on the former, that her name was probably Sarah Elizabeth Dewitt. Four children are listed in this household in 1850. W. Flanders, male age 19, b.p. KY; S. Flanders, female, age 10, b.p. KY; M. Flanders, female, age 6, b.p. KY; I or S Flanders, male, age 3, b.p. KY. According to Kentucky Genealogies and Biographies, Vol. VII, page 210, Benjamin died in 1856, in Nelson Co., KY.
