William C Benningfield was my great-grandfather and he is the son of John Franklin Benningfield. I am looking for further information on him and also about his wife Margaret Cloud. I would love to know who Margaret Cloud's father was! The story of my search is a long one, but I hope someone can help! If anything, a picture of the people would be nice! Thanks!

Surnames: Benningfield, Cloud
Mary Harriet Benningfield (1873-1953) married Clark Cloud
(1870-1895) I was told he was killed by indians but remember I was told this. They are both buried at South Bennett cemetary in Goldthwaite Texas. Those dates are on their head stone so they could be wrong.

If it is of use, here are the Google Earth coordinates for a "lost" Benningfield cemetery in Red River County Texas. It sits off of Farm to Market Road 412 in a field. It contains several burial markers in various states of disrepair:

33°33'14.4"N 94°59'30.0"W

Simply cut and paste into the "Fly To" area on Google Earth and you should be place in the approximate area of the cemetery.

A couple of my ancestors married Benningfields back in the early 1800s and are buried in Red River County.

Hello Jesse
My name is Bobby Bowden. And while I am no blood relation to you my wife is. I've been working on a family tree for my daughter when I ran across your post. While I can't give you any info beyond John Franklin Benningfield, I can help a little going afterwards. William Clarence Benningfield had several children with Margaret Cloud, as I'm sure you know. He ended up having twin sons: Herman Morris and Thurman Norris (...yeah...) anyways Herman Morris married my mother-in-law Freddie Leellen Albert. They had six kids together, three boys and three girls. The last was my wife Kimberlina Benningfield. If you look up my name: Robert Lee Bowden III, you should be able to link to my wife and from there all of her siblings and a huge chunk of her moms side if the family going back to the 1600's. I hope that this at least helps round out the picture about your cousins. Take care!
