Francis’s Early Years

Eliza Benedict was born November 26, 1835, in the old homestead on the edge of the village, and was connected by ties of blood with many of the families whose history stretches back into the early days of Warwick and its environs. From her earliest years she manifested those qualities which she carried with her to the grave—love of nature and humanity, a talent for friendship, a sunny, romantic disposition, bright, intuitive mind, and a rare social gift, which brought her into quick sympathy with all, whether young or old. She died upon the birthday of Francis Aloaton Benedict, that soldier brother whom she loved devotedly, and whose letters, transcribed by her, became a valuable record of the war experiences of the one Hundred and Twenty-fourth regiment, N.Y.V.,-- the “Orange Blossoms” of this county.
