Benkelman, Charles
Benkelman, Charles
A photo from the collection of Louisa Benkelman Schwegler, labeled Charles Benkelman. Based on the age of this photo, this is likely of her cousin Charles Benkelman (born 1866) of Denver, Colorado, the son of her Uncle George. It is possible, however, that it might instead by of her nephew Charles Adam Benkelman (born 1888), the son of her brother George Adam. Both families were ranchers and lived near Denver, Colorado.

Dorus is in the middle, with E.B "Chick" Schwaderer to his left and "Buck" UNKNOWN to the right. In a December 24, 1915 Cass City Chronicle article it was noted, "Wednesday was 'Sod Buster Day' at high school and several of the boys exhibited striking new ideas in male attire." As Dorus had graduated several years earlier, it appears this was an annual event at the High School, and this particular photo was taken at one of the earlier festivities. Dorus was a graduate of the Cass City High School class of 1912, and E.B. Schwaderer graduated in 1913.

Husband of Christine Rommel

John George Benkelman with his wife Christine set out for Denver in 1862. After arriving in Denver, the couple spent the next few days tramping around Denver surveying the possibilities for livelihood. It was apparent that the miners needed supplies brought to them. John George felt like he could handle that chore. Among his many interests were a butcher shop and a shoe shop.

This was in a group of tintypes originally belonging to Louisa Benkelman Schwegler. These tintypes appear to be of Louisa and her brothers, all children of Adam and Catherine Benkelman of Cass City. Alvin Benkelman, Jr., a great grandson of of Adam and Catherine, believes this to be a photo of their son William Frederick. This is based on his comparison to other family and group photos owned and labeled by his late father, Alvin Benkelman Sr. However, based on Marjory Schwegler Battel's identificaton of the various Benkelman sons from a group photo taken around the same time period, it is possible that this might instead be Will's younger brother, Ben.

PLEASE HELP US VERIFY THIS ASSUMPTION
