I am searching for any living descendants of John Walker Benson (ca. 1811 - 1905) and Jane Irvine (1828 - 1901). John's father was Richard Benson of Carrowcanon. Jane's father was Rev. David Irvine, who was rector at St. Anne's Killut for a time. Rev. David is my 5th Great Uncle. He had several children after Jane, but when he died in 1851 they were left destitute and I have not been able to account for them. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Susan

Thank you Eileen - I did not know that the two youngest children were born in England, so that is wonderful to learn. Still hoping there is a living relative out there somewhere that I might connect with.
