  • Notes 
    • [S&M.FTW] [Sam & Martha Benn.FTW] [Benn1.FTW] [BENN.ged] Martha crossed the plains with her family on the Old Oregon Trail in 1852. Source: Samuel Benn obituary in Pacific Northwest Quarterly Vol. 27, Issue 2, 1936, page 175 by John L. Christian and the book - 'The River Pioneers - Early Days on Grays Harbor' by Edwin VanSyckle à 1982 Pacific Search Press. Martha's death certificate lists the cause of her death as acute dilation of heart with a contributory cause of "mitrel stenosis aortic regurgitations". The duration of Martha's condition is noted as 6 months. Martha's obituary in the 14 Aug 'Aberdeen World' read: MRS. SAMUEL BENN PASSES IN SLEEP - Pioneer Woman is Called Suddenly; Crossed Plains in '52; Death Is Shock - Mrs. Samuel Benn, wife of the founder of Aberdeen, a pioneer of the West, who crossed the plains in 1852, when a girl of 8, was found dead in her bed at the Benn home on North G street at 7 o'clock this morning. Mrs. Benn lay as if peacefully sleeping and undoubtedly passed from sleep to death. Heart trouble was the cause of death. She was 72 years old. While Mrs. Benn has been in ill health for several years and was taken to the Aberdeen General hospital several weeks ago for X-ray examination and rest - she was always active, always at work of one sort or another - she had improved so much and had felt so well in recent days that her death came as a surprise and great shock to her family, who had supposed her well on the road to recovery. Her granddaughter, Miss Joan Wappenstein, a nurse of Seattle, who has been in attendance on her for some weeks; had planned to return this morning, considering her services no longer needed.
