Edward C. Benard, Wages
Edward cash-claimed a quarter in 9, 5N 46W in 1891, next to the Bingaman claims of 1891.
There's not an image, so it is possible that the name is incorrect.
W.H. House owned that land in 1920, but there wasn't a residence on it. .
W.H. also had two quarters a mile north, and H. E. House one quarter.
There's an Edward Benard in 1900 Leadville, born March 1870 in Canada, parents born in Canada. He's living in a boarding house, single, occupation "gentleman."
An Edward Benard, dying August 11, 1926 at age 57, is buried in Compton, California, per # 103508572.
If anyone has information on Edward, please let us know.
