Claire asked:

What happened to Benjamin's father at the end? It seems Fitzgerald forgot about him or something. Obviously he died eventually, but when?

Ammu Shiri K If I have guess I would say Mr.Roger Button died after 1895 but before 1906. I think it probably happened between 1895-1898, because in 1898 Benjamin's "home had for him so little charm that he decided to join the army".

But then it could also have happened when he was at war and maybe that's why there is no account of what happened in Benjamin's family at that time.

And given the fact that Benjamin is the only "curious case", I think it is safe to assume his father actually did die !
