Have been searching thru your BENDER line on web site.
Have you run into a (John) Martin BENDER born about 1700 who must have come 
very young.  He was in Craven County N.C. by 1740, buying land from John 
Simons.  But Martin already had land there.  Martin's will in 1750, Craven 
Co. N.C., exec was John Simons.  I do not have a name for his wife.  
Children. John BENDER born ca 1735 (N.C.?), Captain Daniel BENDER born Dec. 
1748, Mary and Salome (both born before 1750).  Bothe sons fought in the Rev. 
War for N.C.
Can't find any siblings.  Researchers in N. C. say they can not find any 
BENDER listed among the Swiss and Germans who came with Baron Christopher de 
Graffenried in 1710. Many of the 1710 people were massacred.

I did not find information on your Matthais BENDER c. 1675-1711 in your 
Any suggestions on my ancestor (John ) Martin BENDER

Thank you.
