"Herman C. Caviness was graduated from Guilford College at the early age of seventeen. His work in college was characterized by a keeness of intellect and a resourcefulness that enabled him to keep up with young men much older. When he graduated from college he was ready to undertake the serious responsibilities of life and in June, 1904, a few days after leaving the halls of college he married Miss Gladys E. Benbow. Mrs. Caviness is a daughter of Lewis S. and Lula (Henderson) Benbow, who is lineally descended from Thomas and Mary (Carver) Benbow [note: this is incorrect; it should say "Charles" instead of "Thomas"]. Mr. and Mrs. Caviness have had a most happy married life and have a family of four children named Nellie, Lewis R., Merrill and Herman Cummings, Jr. Soon after his marriage Mr. Caviness took up the study of law and was graduated from the law department of the University of North Carolina in 1908. He immediately began practice at Wilkesboro and his success and reputation are now assured. He is a member of the Masonic Lodge and he and his wife are active in the Methodist Episcopal Church, South."

||From the book on Nottingham Quakers (Births, Deaths and Marriages of the Nottingham Quakers, 1680-1889) compiled by Alice L. Beard, Family Line Publications, Westminster, MD, 1989:|
"The Nottingham Quakers were mainly from the East and West Nottingham Meetings, Little Britain Meeting, Deer Creek Meeting, Eastland Meeting and the Octorara Meeting. East Nottingham Meeting was established as early as 1700 by Quakers from the Marcus Hook area of Chester Co., Province of Pennsylvania. William Brown was said to have felled the first tree on a land grant from William Penn, which was called
the Nottingham Lots. With the land grant, it was stipulated that a small parcel of land be set aside, about 40 acres, for a meetinghouse and graveyard. This was done and a log meetinghouse was built. In 1724 a brick meetinghouse was built replacing the log structure. There after the East Nottingham Meetinghouse was known as the 'Brick Meetinghouse.' Also in 1724, John Churchman was the first person buried in the graveyard at the Brick Meetinghouse. During the Revolutionary War, the Brick Meetinghouse was used as a hospital by troops under the command of General William Smallwood. Of the soldiers that died at the hospital, many were buried in the Friends graveyard at East Nottingham. West Nottingham Meeting was established about 1710 and later became known as the 'Little Brick Meeting.' In 1749, the Little Britain Meeting was established in Little Britain Twp. (now Fulton Twp.) in Lancaster Co., PA. It is now known as the Penn Hill Meeting and is still in use today.
"Forty-nine years after the establishment of the Little Britain Meeting, another meeting was established in Little Britain Twp. called the Eastland Meeting. The Deer Creek Meeting in Baltimore Co. (now Harford Co.) MD was established in 1760 and was made up of the Deer Creek Meeting and the Bush River Meeting, which was also in Baltimore Co. Many of the descendants of the early Nottingham Quakers migrated to Virginia, Ohio, and points west around the time of the Revolutionary War and after. As well, many of the descendants of the early Quakers are still living here in the area that their forebears settled." (pages iii-iv of introduction)

||He was born in Fayetteville, while his father was living there, and he moved with his family to Greensboro when he was a young boy. He attended Moses Brown School at Providence, Rhode Island, and Eastman Business School at Poughkeepsie, NY. He operated the old Benbow Hotel for many years; it later became the Guilford Hotel, and was located on the lot later occupied by the Woolworth store on South Elm Street. He became one of Greensboro's leading citizens. In 1918 he went to St. Petersburg, Florida, where he was active in the development of that city. (obituaries from Greensboro Daily News & Greensboro Record, 11 August 1947)|
"Public-spirited, wide-awake and thoroughly progressive, Charles D. Benbow has achieved an honorable record as a promoter of all enterprises conducive to a bigger and better Greensboro, his home city, for which he believes nothing is too good, and for whose advancement and prosperity he is ever willing to freely contribute his time, energy, and money, his loyalty as a man and a citizen being above reproach. A native of North Carolina, he was born in Fayetteville, Cumberland County, and is of Welsh ancestry, being a descendant in the fifth generation from the immigrant ancestor, his line of descent being thus traced: Charles, Thomas, Charles, De Witt Clinton, and Charles David.... [information about ancestors is recorded under their names].
"Following the educational path trod by his father, Charles D. Benbow attended both Guilford College and the Friends' School in Providence, Rhode Island. He afterwards took a course of study at Eastman's Business College in Poughkeepsie, New York. Soon after his return to North Carolina, Mr. Benbow went to Pinehurst to superintend the erection of various buildings for Mr. Tufts, the founder of the now noted winter resort. At that time there was but one hotel in the place, a building containing thirty-two rooms, and twelve cottages. When he left there, five years later, there were accommodations in hotels and cottages for upwards of 5,000 people. Returning to Greensboro, Mr. Benbow became associated with his father in the management of some of his properties, and superintended the erection of the Benbow Building and managed the Benbow Hotel, at the same time having charge of the Grand Central Hotel in Columbia, this state.
"The democratic convention that nominated Governor Glenn was invited to meet at Greensboro. The committee in charge said there were not sufficient hotel accommodations for so large a gathering. Mr. Benbow assured the committee that there would be at the date appointed, and immediately began the construction of the "Benbow Arcade," which was entirely completed in forty-six days, with its 126 rooms ready for guests. Like his father, Mr. Benbow has always taken a genuine interest in local affairs, and has heartily endorsed and supported beneficial projects of all kinds. He is interested in financial matters as one of the directors of the Greensboro National Bank.
"Mr. Benbow married in 1880 Elizabeth C. Perry, who was born in Providence, Rhode Island, a daughter of Edward and Hannah Perry. Three children have been born of their union, namely: Mary, Charles D., Jr., and Edward Perry. Mary, wife of R. Watt Richardson, has three children, Robert, R. Watt, Jr., and Mary. Charles D. married Marjorie Long, and they have two children, Mary Long and Charles D., Jr. Edward Perry married Ann Riddick, and they are the parents of three children, Elizabeth, Edward, and De Witt Clinton. Fraternally, Mr. Benbow is a member of Greensboro Lodge No. 80, Knights of Pythias; of Buena Vista Lodge, Independent Order of Odd Fellows; and of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. Religiously he belongs to the Society of Friends, and Mrs. Benbow is a member of the Baptist church." (published biographical sketch)
Charles was received by New Garden Monthly Meeting, Guilford County, North Carolina, on request, on March 26, 1873 (Hinshaw 1: 527).
He was the postmaster of Pinehurst, a village of 300, in 1898.
He is buried at Green Hill Cemetery in Greensboro. The funeral was conducted at Hanes Chapel and Rev. Howard Cope, pastor of Asheboro Street Friends Church, officiated.
