Re: [Stonehaven Genealogy] Benzie / Benzies Family
- Thanks for the information. Any little bit helps, so
if you come across any more please let me know.
There is on the OPR for Inverkeithney, an Alexander
Benzie who married an Ann Garden on 22nd December 1798.
A Christina (Christian) Benzies married Alexander Wood
on 22nd October 1829 at St Nicholas, Aberdeen.
Not much help but may be something,
- Hi Rick,
The Benzie name caught my eye. Although I am no
relation, a James Benzie was a quarryman in St. Cloud,
Stearns County, Minnesota in the 1920 US Census. My
great uncle, John Campbell was in business with him
in the granite industry.
Briefly the census informatiion is :
James Benzie age 51, born Scotland Immigrated 1889
Sarah Benzie, wife, age 44 born Scotland, Immigrated 1885
Both naturalized citizens in 1895. No children listed.
There are 6 Benzies listed in the Minnesota Death Index.
I would be happy to send along the census image if you
E-mail me at:
Thanks for allowing me into your group. It seems to be
an interesting group that I hope to enjoy. I have been
working on my family tree for some time now & I am
looking into the names of Benzie/Benzies. There are so
many of us out there & I hope to hear from you all. I
am hoping that there is some information out there on
these families that I can do some research & add into
the tree. I am always looking for any information that
is out there & hoping that as a member that you can
pass on some so that I can put it into the tree.
Thank you for your time,
Rick & Judy Benzies
