I am looking for information regarding James Benton b. 1842, Indiana; d. 1921, Eugene, Oregon. He married Margaret Harris d/o a wagoneer who guided ox trains over the Oregon Trail to Oregon. James and Margaret had 2 children; Nettie married ? Manning and Harry. James died while living with his son Harry in Eugene according to his obituary. My dad has old pictures of James a few years before his death with his sisters and brother. James's brother Thomas is my gg-grandfather. Please contact me as I would to make contact with any descendants and share information.
