    • Charles David Benbow, II, "erected the Benbow Hotel at the corner of South Elm and Sycamore Streets in Greensboro, since the original Benbow House had burned in 1899." ("Life and Writings of John Wesley Long, MD")

      "Charles D. Benbow, who reorganized Scouting in Rocky Mount as the Scout Executive of the old Tar Heel Council, died unexpectedly at his home here early today. He was 83 years old. A native of Greensboro, where he had been active in the real estate business as well as in Scouting as a volunteer, Benbow came to Rocky Mount in 1930. He served as Scout Executive of the Tar Heel Council until it was merged seveal years later with the East Carolina Council. He was an Eagle Scout and had served in nearly every capacity as a volunteer leader before entering Scouting professionally. [Survivors] include his wife, Mrs. Anne Stephenson Benbow of the home, 200 Braswell Street; a son, Charles D. Benbow III of Statesville; two daughters, Mrs. Mary Long Mooney and Mrs. John Luxem, both of Wheaton, Ill.; a brother, E. P. Benbow of Greensboro; a sister, Mrs. Watt Richardson of Reidsville; and seven grandchildren. Funeral services were planned for 11 o'clock Saturday morning at Gay-Yost Funeral Home. The Rev. Charles I. Penick, rector of the Church of the Good Shepherd, of which Mr. Benbow was a member, will be in charge. Burial will be in Pineview Cemetery."
