Ben Wallerís first family


Benís first wife was Sarah Francis (Fanny) Brown. She bore him two children: James (Jim) Ferdinand Waller and Mary (Mollie) Elizabeth Waller. Their children were half-cousins of my mother. Mother kept in contact with at least one half-cousin, Bessie Hill Arthur. I have a letter from Bessie to mom that gives the information on her part of the family.



Here are photos of the children of Ben Waller by his first wife. He is James Ferdinand Waller and she is Mary Elizabeth Waller. He married and raised a large family and is buried with his wife at the Waller home place. I donít know where she is buried.
