Status: Located; In the late eighties Tom Adams left Jack County with a herd of cattle and started to Arizona with them. When he got west of Benjamin, about where the Ross and Moorhouse ranches are now, the grass and water were never better, so he just turned his cattle loose and said, "This is Arizona enough for me," so that part of the country went by the name of "Little Arizona" in the early days.

Benkelman, Adam and Anna Catharina (Schaufele) ca 1860's
Adam and Catherine Benkelman were married in Börtlingen, Württemberg around 1851; and then left almost immediately for New York, where their seven children were born. This photo of Adam and Catherine appears to have been taken when they both were in their mid 30's, probably while they were still living in Lancaster, Erie County, New York, and before their westward journey to Michigan.

TOP ROW: Identified by Marjory Schwegler Battel, granddaughter of Lousia, to be l to r, standing, Sam (age 19), Ben Sr. (age 15), John (age 22), and George (age 27) BOTTOM ROW: from left to right, seated, Will (age 17), Louisa (age 25), Catharine (55) and Adam (53).
This is likely correct, however several descendants of Ben Sr instead believe he is seated next to his sister, Louisa, and elder brother Will is standing, second on the left.
It was probably taken near the families farm in Tuscola County, Michigan.

Benkelman, Adam and Catharina (Schaufele) 1851 Marriage, Börtlingen, Württemberg, Germany
Benkelman, Adam and Catharina (Schaufele) 1851 Marriage, Börtlingen, Württemberg, Germany
German Church Family Registery. This shows Adam's birthdates and marriage dates, as well as his parents. However, the name on the right hand side of the card, under "hausmutter" is difficult to read. His wife was Anna Catharina Schaufele. The date above her name is certainly incorrect.

PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU CAN HELP INTERPRET THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE CARD.

Benkelman, Adam and Catherine Family Plot
Benkelman, Adam and Catherine Family Plot
Status: Located; This marker was engraved on all four sides, with trees planted eight to ten feet out on either side of the marker. The engraving on the granite is very difficult to read, however, the four names engraved upon it are still legible, and are for Adam Benkelman, his wife, Catherine, and two of their daughters-in-law who died shortly after marriage, Lydia Striffler, the wife of Samuel Benkelman and Rosina Wahl, the wife of John Adam Benkelman. This marker was likely erected in 1886, when Rosina died.
