Note: George Edwin Benedict was probably b Bridgeport, Fairfield County, CT, where his family was residing at the time.

Research indicates that son George Benedict b ca 1879 was George Alfred that married Carrie ? ca 1901, thay res New Haven, CT. and that they had two children. At this time, cannot substantiate, so am omitting information. If anyone can verify, will be more than happy to update and include this.
