  1. First visit here, but need to make a correction. Dorcas Benge’s maiden name was Lightfoot. She was the daughter of Cap. John Lightfoot and GaHoGah, of the Deer Clan. The sister of Dorcas was Nancy who married a Foster before marrying Adair. Dorcas and Nancy were half-blood Cherokee. The unknown Benge who first married Dorcas was either Trader John Benge or his son “Chief” Robert Benge. Don Shadburn in the book “Upon Our Ruins” makes the statement that it is believed Trader John was the father of Edmund Benge (who later took the name Duncan). There is also some controversy about who the parents of Trader John were, as I have seen on at least one site where his mother was called Ann and was a full blood Cherokee. That said, Please correct me if you know otherwise.
