Do you have primary documentation for the parentage of Trader John Benge. I have studied this person for years and, so far, I have seen no proof. Can you please share, if you do? I don't mind doing the work of finding it, if you can point me in the right direction. If you do NOT have primary documentation, can you tell me what source you have? Thank you for your contribution.
