I would dearly like to find living relatives of my Great Grandmother. Her name was Sarah Francis Benson (1885). Her parents were Hannah Haig (1854) and William Wilkinson Benson (1843). Her siblings were John (1877), Hannah (1879) and Thomas (1888). Sarah married Thomas Rogers (1882) and had six children, Albert, Thomas, Sarah, Margaret, Nora and John. If you are a relative of Sarah please contact me. I have good knowledge of her ancestors but nothing of her descendants and I would love to speak to you. My Father was her son Albert Rogers.

You said you father was her son Albert. Surely Albert is your grandfather if she is your great grandmother?

Also, her middle name would be Frances. Francis is a male name.
