notes

From http://potterwashburnreunion.org/gardner.htm

"36. Benoni Gardiner, son of Sara (Slaughter) and George Gardiner was born in England about1636 and was an infant when his father emigrated to New England. It is supposed he died in 1731. He married Mary, last name unknown. She was born in 1645 and died January 27, 1730 (some records say January 16, 1729.) Benoni accumulated a large property, owning more land than the other Gardiner men in Narragansett where they are said to have been the largest land holders. Five sons and one daughter are listed. The early establishment of the family in Narragansett provided financial benefits to the Gardiners of the third and fourth generation."

comments

From http://www.werelate.org/wiki/Person:Benoni_Gardiner_(1)_

"I have summarized a detailed, ten-page account by Moriarty in a few short sentences. I find his arguments cogent and to the point. Anyone wanting to maintain that Benoni was the son of George Gardiner and Sarah Slaughter needs to review Moriarty's article and provide satisfactory counter-arguments.--Bill Wright 10:46, 30 August 2010 (EDT)"
