Cora (Arnst) Bensley

Posted: 1261246028000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Arnst, Bensley
My great grandmother's name was Cora Arnst (born Aug 1879 in Lehman, PA). Her mother was Mary Catherine Arnst and her father is unknown (possibly illegitimate). I think that her mother eventually married John Kohl. Cora's grandparents were Samuel G. & Hannah M. Arnst.

Cora married Elmer Norman Bensley (son of James Madison Bensley) in 1898 and they promptly left the state.

I have two questions regarding them.

First, can anyone tell me who Cora's father was?

Second, why did they leave Pennsylvania?
