Benjamin and Frances were both born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, both attended the same high school at the same time, lived in the same neighborhood and had mutual acquaintances. One of those mutual acquaintances was Frances’ sister Bertie. Benjamin and Frances however did not meet each other until a fateful trip they both took to New York City when Frances traveled with her sister and friends and Benjamin traveled with friends. Once they met, they would begin a relationship that would blossom into a marriage. Benjamin and Frances began a family and be the proud parents of three girls, Leslie, Benita and Nancy. After seven decades of marriage and tens of thousands of miles traveled together, they were still young sweet hearts.
