Albert Benjamin Benedict Family

A. B. Benedict's paternal family line descends from Thomas BENEDICT and Mary BRIDGHAM. Thomas Benedict and his step-sister Mary Bridgham left England in 1637 to settle in Salem, Massachusetts Bay Colony. Thomas later married his step-sister, Mary, and they began new lives for themselves. Thomas and Mary were among the first settlers of Salem, Massachesetts Bay Colony.

Albert B. BENEDICT was born 4 Aug 1826 in Pleasantville, Venango, Pennsylvania to Alvin and Julia (THOMPSON) BENEDICT. He died 15 February 1914 in Shenandoah, Page, Iowa. At Pleasanville, Venango, Pennsylvania on 30 October 1846, Albert married Lois HITCHCOCK. After Lois' death, he married Julia E. WALLACE.
