    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.

Issues on file at the Rawson Memorial Library in Cass City, Michigan include Vol. 5 (1941), Vol. 7 (1944) and Volumes 8 (1945) through Vol. 28 (1968). Issues published from 1961 through 1964 were not assigned volume numbers, and 1963 appears to be missing. Xeroxes of the existing issues were also made by Melinda McLemore Strong in 2007. According to a article published by the Cass City Chronicle on August 6, 1981, commemorating the Fiftieth and Final Striffler-Benkelman Reunion, the final issue of the STRIFFLER-BENKELMAN BROADCAST appears to have been Volume 28, published in 1968.), Volume 10, September 1, 1947 (Reliability: 3).
