It is great to hear from you. John William Bentley 1 Aug 1881 Parowan, Iron, Utah 28 Mar 1957 Parowan, Iron, Utah is my 1st cousin 3x removed. Both of John's parents, William Bentley 1850 – 1933 and Lovina Moore Banks 1862 – 1928 are blood relatives of my; the Bentley line came from my maternal grandmother and the Banks line came from both sides of my dads line - due to all the cross/family inter-marring that went on. Lovina's line goes back to Eyre.

William is my 2nd great-grand uncle and a younger brother to my 2nd great-grandfather, Frederick.

I uploaded my GEDCOM onto almost 2 years ago and have been busy working of several different lines. I am currently working on my West line that came from my great-grandparents, Margaret Alice West and Edward Bentley.

I took a quick look at John W. and his wife Hannah’s records and see that I have my original information that was researched before loading the GEDCOM onto From what research I have completed on his line, I show that John and Hannah had 5 daughters and one son.

I show that Gertrude and her husband, Jens Peter Nielson, both died in their 20s. Do not have much on Laura, just b: abt 1913 and that Alice was b: 22 Feb 1915 and d: 28 Feb 1916. I have not followed Shelby's line yet but I show that he was b: 10 Jun 1917 d: 30 Oct 1991. And for the last two, Norma, and Roma, it looks like they were twins as both have a date of birth of abt 1919.

I would love to show you what I have got on the Bentley line as well as the Banks/Eyre lines as well. If I remember correctly, I have at least three different way of connecting my mother Bentley line to my dads Craw line. I know that I uploaded a story to several records showing these connections.

Delete the spaces and the at and add @

I think I had a typo in Hannah name; I had Mickelson.
