  • Notes 
    • A September 9, 1957 Toledo (OH) News Bee article details his reunion after 47 years with his two brothers, Charles Albert of Alma, MI, and Noah of Superior, Wisconsin. He is said to have spoken fluent English and French and a little bit of German and still knew a great deal of the Chippewa Indian tongue. The brothers erroneously claim their great -grandmother, Mary LaVoy was Chippewa. She was Potawatomi. Ben narates an incident of horseplay as a boy when his brother Noah dropped a three foot water snake on him and he, in turn, attacked Noah with a fish spear.

      Benjamin was a policeman for forty years and lived with his son Romeo in Toledo, OH, for his last four years. He was an active hunter and fisherman all of his life, as were his brothers.. (obit)
