      ------------------
      Have some problems with Benjamin and wives and children. All trees on ancestry state married Prudence Clifton about 1820. First child usually listed is Rachel, b 1822.
      But:
      Tennessee State marriages, 1780-2002
      B F Benson - Nancy Bryson 26 Jun 1842 Rhea, Tn

      Also:
      1830 census Rhea, TN lists four children, 2 sons & 2 daughters, born between1810 and 1820. Also no wife listed for Benjamin.

      I know he was married to Prudence by 1850 according to 1850 & 1860 census. But it almost looks like he was married three times: 1st about 1812, 2nd 1842 to Nancy Bryson, 3rd bef 1850 to Prudence. Fact that youngest child, Joseph, was born 1843 might indicate Nancy had one child and died.

      Need more work.
