I have the "NOTES ON THE PRUYN FAMILY" from the NEW YORK GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL RECORD Vol. XXX., No. 1 January, 1890. Also information from the July and October 1890 issues.

I would like to obtain a copy of the pertinent pages from "NYG&B RECORD" Vol. XVII., JULY, 1886 as the first record above was continued from page 214 of this noted record. If anyone has knowledge on how to obtain this information, please advise.

I am willing to share what I have from the first records.

I am also attempting to build my other lines of ancestors that are listed on the top line of this web page. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The annual Benton Family Reunion will be held on July 2, 2000 at Ontario, Oregon. The event is sponsored by the children of George Walter Benton and Edith Lillian DeBord Benton.
Please contact me for details.
