(Interview with Winston and Gary Benjestorf (Gayle Armer Public Family Tree)



PO Box 762
Applegate,CA 95703

I met with Winston Benjestorf on 30 March 2002 at his mobile home in Applegate, California. He seemed in vigourous good health at 82 years of age, and was working on rebuilding a deck that he had>
torn down because it wasn't "up to code".
He told me that he had battled with multiple types of cancer a few years ago, and also had to have heart surgery.
Winston was born at Hollow Hill Dairy (?) near Colton, California after his parents moved there from Canada.
Winston worked on Uncle Alex's dairy farm in Norwalk, California for a while as a young man. He later owned a Volkswagon shop, and got involved in off road racing all over the west coast. He owne>
d a construction company in Colfax.
He met his wife, Lois, when she came into his father's "Wimpy's Burger" place while he was working there as a young man, and he says it was love at first sight. They were married the day after Chr>
istmas 1942. In March 2002, Lois was suffering from symptoms of alzheimers syndrome.
Winston told me a story he had heard from his father that the Benjestorf name was made up by one of our ancestors who was in fact a Scotsman trying to do business in Germany (Hannover?). Business >
wasn't going well, and some German freinds suggested he would do better if he modified his surname so that it sounded like a German name. His name was Benje or Benjes or something similar, and he cha>
nged it to Benjestorf. If the story is true, that means that the Benjestorf name is unique, and anyone bearing the name would, of necessity, be closely related to any other Benjestorf descendants.
Winston seemed to be under the impression that Heinrich Benjestorf was the ancestor that created the name, but given that I have detailed names, birthdates and birthplaces in the kingdom of Hannov>
er of direct ancestors with the Benjestorf name dating back to 1768, and a statement from a German Benjestorf descendant that Heinrich left Germany for the USA when he was only 19 that seems highly un>
likely.
If the story has a factual basis, it most likely occured in the early or mid 18th century. A Scotsman trying to do business in Hannover might fit in rather nicely with King George I of Hannover in>
heriting the throne of Great Brittain & Ireland in 1714.
It seems more credible, also, if the ancestor in question had Benjamin as a FIRST NAME and modified it to the surname Benjestorf since I have never heard of a Scotts surname even faintly resembling ">
Benjes".
Another possibility, of course, is that the whole story was a family joke that was mistaken by some youthful Benjestorf for a serious story.
