    Notes 
    • From Ancestral File (TM), data as of 2 January 1996.

      Kathy Birch (descendant) says: "By the way, did you know that Benjamin was born with a cleft palate? One of the most impressive stories I ever heard about Margaret [Benjamin's mother] was about how she kept that baby alive. Because of the cleft palate, he was unable to suck, and most babies in the circumstances had it pretty rough. Margaret would express milk, then dip a rag or a sponge into the milk and squeeze it drop by drop into the baby's mouth. Imagine doing THAT for a newborn around the clock! You can still see the harelip on the pictures of him as a child. Once he was established (in his 20's, I think), he went to Chicago to have corrective surgery on his palate and lip. He always wore a mustache to cover up the deformity."
