Tradition says that Benjamin was the captain of a whaling ship. He was constable in Hanover, NJ, and was referred to as "blacksmith and bloomer" in some deeds when he sold land received in his father's will to his brother. In 1743 he was a town officer in Morristown, and gave land to the church. In 1747 he was a county judge, and thereafter used the title "Esquire." Several records call him "Dr." His will left land, the house, and the grist mill to his son John, and land to Joseph, the forge and one-third of the sawmill to son Eleazar, his tools of the blacksmith trade to son Joseph, and the house to Benoni.
