Benjamin was a member of the 2nd Battalion, Missouri Calvary State Guard, First Division.

Benjamin, and his brother, James, were founding members of the Poplar Bluff Masonic Lodge, #209, A. F.& A. M.  The lodge was organized in 1860 with a membership of eleven as follows: J. W. Baldwin, J. T. Adams, James M. Jennings, James D. Dennis, Charles L. Scott, T. M. Ritch, C. P. Phelps, T. J. Bledsoe, S.W. Miller, B. D. Jennings and James S. Ferguson.  The first meeting was held on the evening of May 7, 1860, and the election and installation of officers took place, as follows:  J. W. Baldwin, W. M.; J. T. Adams, S.W.; James M. Jennings, J. W.; T. J. Bledsoe, Treas.; T. M. Ritch, Sec.; James S. Ferguson, S.D.; C. P. Phelps, J.D.; C. L. Scott, Tyler.  Benjamin resigned from the lodge 28 Sep 1867 and supposedly left Butler County.

It's believed that Benjamin removed to the Indian Territory with his second family and died while living there but no records have been found of this yet.
