    • They were living in Xenia in 1910 and in Springfield, Ohio by 1918 and in the 1920 & 1930 censuses.

      Notes from Linda Bennington Gatliff:
      The following are memories of my wonderful uncle Carroll Bennington who did genealogy for years. They lived in Springfield. They had no children. William was a machinist  I do not know where the photo was taken. They used to visit my mother & father when I was a young boy & we visited their home in Springfield. [13]
