      JAMES BENEDICT, dealer in agricultural implements, was born in Salisbury, Litchfield County, Conn., in 1834; son of Nathaniel and Polly Benedict. He was raised in his native State, and came from there to Kansas in 1857; located at Lawrence, where he remained for three years engaged in farming; he then moved to Dayton, Ohio, where he engaged in the hardware business until 1870, when he again came to Kansas and located at Arkansas City; he was among the earliest settlers of this place. He built a building on the corner of Summit street and Center avenue, where he opened the first hardware business of the place, and for ten years carried on the business under the firm name of Benedict Bros. His brother died in 1880, and he then engaged in the agricultural implement business located at the old stand with office on North Summit street; his business has increased about fifty per cent since 1880. He was married in 1860, to Miss Annie Wright, daughter of Isaac and Elizabeth Wright. The issue of this marriage has been eight children, four of whom survive - Carrie, Albert, Bertha and Ada. He is a member of the Presbyterian Church and of the Masonic fraternity, Royal Arch and A. O. U. W., also Knights of Honor. He was a member of the City Council for five years, and served two terms as Mayor of the city.
