There was never a question I had about something in the County that Ben didn't answer, and never a story that I started that Ben didn't finish. I looked forward to chatting with him every time I went into the Genealogical Society, and am sorry that I didn't go more often. Rest Easy my friend, we will carry on the history from here.
