Samuel Michael Bingham, 1845-1905, folk hero, former mayor and benefactor of Ottawa, Canada, practically lost connection to his descendants but a persistent great-granddaughter of his older brother John couldn’t leave things alone.

Karen Bingham grew up in Ottawa, where, all her life, she was aware that her name was the same as the former mayor but she was unsure of her connection to the man who had a street, a school and a park named for him. In 2000, the city voted to move a big cast-iron fountain inscribed to Samuel Bingham from a city storage building to a house her grandfather had built. It still sits there where it is used as a flower planter.
