I am looking for information for JOHN BENTON b. 24 Sept 1879 in Denison, Sherman County TX d. 1931 in WeWoka Seminole County OK. He was a sometimes deputy sheriff in Boynton Muskogee County OK sometime during the 1920's he was married (they ran away to Sherman Co. TX to get md. in 1902) to ADA HOBBS d/o JOEL HOBBS and LIZZIE SIMPSON HOBBS. JOHN & ADA's children were: John Benton Jr. 15 May 1903, Lutcher Hubert b. 23 Dec 1905, Guy Zell b. 20 Feb 1908, Opal b. 1 Feb 1918, Verdell, Eugene b. 19 Feb 1921. They owned a grocery store for a while, John is my brick wall. any info on him would be very helpful. There were at least 2 JOHN BENTON'S born in Denison TX around the same time and apparently both lived in Muskogee and Seminole OK at the same time, may have been cousins, or same John Benton we know the above JOHN BENTON had 2 families and children from both. any info would be very helpful laveta townsend
