Finding Faulkner: The Progeny | Adaline Crawford {Gen 4}

It started, as good quests always do, with a family tale.

Adaline Crawford (Letty Crawford, Mary, Samuel, William) was born in Orange Co, New York March 13th 1845, to parents Letty Crawford and James I Crawford.

Adaline married Rev. Benjamin Gilbert Benedict (1839-1912) December 26th 1877 in the home of her mother Letty, in Crawford, Orange Co, New York.

The couple had at least two children:

  • Benjamin Crawford Benedict b. 16 Aug 1879 d. 18 Jan 1955 m. (1)Emma Richards (2) Elizabeth MacMaster
  • Mabel Gertrude Crawford b. 14 Aug 1884 d. 26 Apr 1885 

Benjamin was a young widower when he married Adaline. He had been educated as a school teacher and went on to become a minister in the Presbyterian church, first in Thompson Ridge, Orange Co, New York then Washingtonville, Orange Co, New York. After the death of Benjamin's first wife he returned to teaching business English at the Long Island Business College. 

Adaline and Benjamin were married in the home of Letty Crawford, Adaline's mother, in Crawford, Orange Co, New York. The newlyweds removed to Kings Co, New York where Benjamin continued to teach.

Adaline Crawford Benedict died February 22nd 1899 at the age of 53. She is buried in the Evergreens Cemetery in Brooklyn, New York.
