Chauncey Aaron BENSLEY, born 19 MAY 1926 and died 05 JAN 2000 in El Monte, LA County, California. He was a veteran and was buried in the Riverside National Cemetery near Los Angeles. He got his SSN in Virginia before 1951.

He must be the little "Chuncey" BENSLEY in the 1930 census in Ward 7 of Schenectady, Schenectady County, NY, ED 42, sheet 3B. The household looked like this:
354 Schenectady Street
BENSLEY, Paul head, 27, married at 21, born in PA to parents from PA, "automatic operator" in the electric works.
BENSLEY, Ethel 27, wife, 27, married at 21, born in PA to parents from PA
BENSLEY, Madelyn H. dau, 6y 7m, born in NY
BENSLEY, Chuncey son, 3y11m, born in NY
SCHOONOVER, Harriet mother-in-law, 47, PA PA PA
SCHOONOVER, Aaron uncle, 48, PA PA PA, "cabin helper" in Cab?? Dept.

The 1920 census (ED 175, sheet 3B) shows Paul L. BENSLEY, 16, with widowed mother Elizabeth, 40, PA PA NJ; sister Helen B., 14; and brother Howard L., 12. There are BENSLEY families on both sides of them, including Joseph BENSLEY, 70, PA PA NJ; and his wife Melinda M., 75, PA NJ NJ.

That should be enough for anyone in the family to find a relationship. Let me know if a connection is made.
