It's been awahile since I posted this....thought maybe I'd give it another try.

Does anyone have a picture of David Benge......dubbed King David Benge because of his participation in the Revolutionary War at Kings's Mountain? He was born 1760 and died in 1854....and is buried in Martin Cemetery.

Here is a quick run-through of our family. My grandmother was Flossie Benge who married Thomas Stewart in Clay County. Flossie was the daughter of Susan Benge of Clay County..(never married) Susan was the daughter of Smiling David Benge & Nancy Lincks.....whose parents was John 'Jackie" Benge & Philedelphia Harrison Benge.....and, his parents was "King David Benge." & Lucreita Perry. Have you logged onto Don Chesnut's website? He is a distant cousin and has done a lot of research. Go to Click on Our Ancestors....then the Database link....then key in whoever you want to see in the Benge family and many other surnames within the extended family. Make sure you key it like this or it won't go through Benge, David (with the comma) SEE KING DAVID BENGE's INFORMATION BELOW:
