aka Starr Benedict, b Danbury, Fairfield County, CT, ca Feb1813, son of George and Dorcas (Vail), was married 1st to either Sophia Carey, or, per 1850 census, Washington, Litchfield County, CT, Delilah, and per 1960 census, Kent, Litchfield County, Delia. she d ca 1861. They had 3 known children: dau Francis b ca 1850, son George Israel b ca 1853, New Preston, Litchfield County, and Sarah Frances b bet 1857 and 1961. Starr Benedict did not register any of his daughters births.
Am seeking any information on Sophia Carey/Delilah/Delia ?. Maiden name, where/when born, where they married, where/when she died and is buried. Per a certified genealogist, she died in Kent, Litchfield County, but i did not find any listing in the LDS records.
Also seeking information on their dau Francis. she was last found in the 1870 census as a domestic servant for the Bruce Hatch family in Kent, Litchfield County.
I have information on George Israel.
Sarah Frances (aka Sadie) is also a mystery. She m Carlton Leslie Graves in Madison, CT 30Jun1883. the marriage cert lists 1st marriage for Carlton, 2nd marriage for Sarah. They had 1 child, Goldie Bell Graves, b 19Oct1889, and on her birth cert, it lists 2nd child born to mother. Seeking any information on her 1st marriage and child. Carlton Graves d 3Nov1894, and Sarah/Sadie has disappeared completely! Goldie Bell shows up 11May1906 in Palatka, FL (near St Augustine) marrying
Elzie H. Green.
any and all information, gossip, rumours, tidbits most gratefully received!
