      Hi,
      Found your request for information on those listed on the below site:
      <http://www.drwilliams.org/genealogy/5709.htm>
      The dates you have posted are correct, however both Samuel & Sarah (Weed) Benedict died in Ashville, NY not Stamford, CT as you posted. Samuel and Sarah are buried in the Ashville Cemetery (also known as Maple Grove) Ashville, NY (Chautauqua County).
      I have personally visited the cemetery and my husband is a descendant from the two individuals listed.
      From the book, "Soldiers of the American Revolution" ref: Samuel Benedict --
      He served in Col. Philip Bradley's Battalion, Wadsworth Brigade, also in Capt. Reuben Scofield's Company, Connecticut Militia. He is mentioned as a pensioner in the census of 1840, aged 87, residing with William Dean in the town of Harmony.[Chautauqua County] His wife, Sarah, died March 17, 1845, aged 90 years, and is buried beside him.
      (William Dean was the 2nd husband of their daughter, Rebecca (Benedict) Brown Dean. My husband descends from Rebecca & her first husband, Samuel Brown).
      If I can be of any further help, let me know.
