As mentioned in Hendricks County Circuit Court Civil Order Book Volume 96 (February 1947 - March 1948), in September 1947 Alice A. Benjamin was granted a divorce from Frank P. Benjamin (case #17794). The case was originally filed in Marion County court in Indianapolis but was transferred to the Hendricks County Circuit Court. The divorce decree noted that they were married on 12 April 1937 and had lived together until 2 January 1947, and had children Marilyn Rose Benjamin (age 9) and Donna Elaine Benjamin (age 4). Alice was given custody of the 2 children and Frank was ordered to pay $30 a week child support.
