Excerpt from Caleb Benton and Sarah Bishop: Their Ancestors and Their Descendants

The compiler of this monograph was the last born of the forty-four grandchildren of Caleb and Sarah Benton, his birth lacking but a few months of being an even century from that of the former. Of these forty-four, only five are living at the present time of writing, July, 1905. As a record this work is far from being complete, - genealogical records are never complete, - but delays are dangerous, and it has been deemed best to save in print some portion of that which has thus far been collected.

The silhouette which appears on the frontispiece is from the only portrait in existence of Caleb and Sarah Benton, and, it is supposed, was made about the year 1816. As a matter of convenience to the readers the genealogical tables are placed together, after the historical chapters. In the eighth chapter I have used a system of numbering which, with a slight examination, will be easily understood. The number at the left is the family number, while the number at the right leads to the descendants of that member of the family, and in turn becomes, itself, a family number. By this means either the ancestors or descendants of any individual in the records can be readily traced. By referring to the chart the reader will the more readily understand the order and relationship of the various ancestors.

The writer gladly acknowledges his indebtedness to the many from whom he has derived assistance, whether in print or otherwise, especially to Mr. Charles H. Benton and Mr. John H. Benton; and also to his brothers, Orville and Myron, the former of whom was the first to collect and arrange some of the records of the family ancestry, but they have both passed to the completion of their own records, leaving to their brother the task of continuing the work.
