In working with my WHITSON and RISELING family research, I have been trying
to find out what happened to Mineva HENSON (d/o of Sophia Catherine WHITSON
and Benjamin F. HENSON). Minerva married Joseph BENOIST in Jackson County
on December 7, 1849. In looking for my RISELING family in Cherokee Co.,
Kansas, I found Joseph BENOIST living there in 1870 but without a wife or
children. (Ironically enough, he went into business with someone from my
RISELING side of the family) If there are folks out there working on
WHITSONs or HENSONs, does anyone know what happened to Minerva?
