    Notes 
    • The article on his fatherís death in the 30 Sep 1916 edition of the Minneapolis Morning Tribune says that Benjamin, ďa railroad man,Ē lost his right arm in a railroad accident on August 15, 1916, and had just been released from the hospital on the day of his fatherís death.

      His obituary in the Minneapolis Star on January 8th erroneously listed his age at death as 84 for some reason. He lived at 3901 S. 18th Avenue and had worked for the Milwaukee Road for 51 years which also seems impossible. He was a member of the Minnehah Masonic Lodge. He was survived by a wife Clara J, two sons, Howard Hobbs and Harold Honmyhr, three grandchildren, and a brother, Fred C.
