This is a photo of Stella and Melba Benoist that I found at the Timberlake, S.D. museum. If anyone has information on the two lovely ladies I would appreciate hearing from you. Thank you in advance, Grandma
I don't have a whole lot of info on Stella and Melda, but here's what I do know:
Their parents were Ambrose Cyril Benoist (son of Louis Benoist and Virginie Primeau) and Elizabeth Isabella Whitney (daughter of Eugene Monroe Whitney and Mary LeCompte).
Stella Marie Benoist was born December 2, 1900 and Melda M. Benoist was born June 12, 1902. Their brother Cyril Ambrose "Butch" Benoist was born November 9, 1907 or 1909. Another brother, Roy Theodore Benoist, was born February 3, 1911. Yet another brother, Narcisse Benoist, was born August 14, 1915.
Melda married Bruno A. Wenner on April 29, 1925 in Brown County, SD. Cyril "Butch" married Evelyn Cecilie Whitney on October 2, 1926 in Lawrence County, SD. Roy married Connie Foster on April 5, 1940 in Potter County, SD.
fmbenoist, Thank you for the information. Melba and Stella are Catherine Benoist's (my Great Great Grandmother) neices. Its so nice to have another piece of the puzzle. Happy New Year and thanks again for the info. Grandma
