Thomas Hart Benton was born and raised in the city of St. Louis. He was influenced by an uncle, who was a retired Starfleet officer, to join Starfleet. After attending local schools, Benton entered Starfleet Academy, graduating from the marine officer's course. On his first assignment, he met a teacher named Virginia "Ginny" Hardee. They fell in love and got married. A year later, they had a daughter, whom they named Ann-Marie. When they'd been married four years, Virginia Benton was killed, unfortunately, in a shuttle plane crash, leaving Benton a widower with a three year-old daughter. Both Benton and his daughter had counseling for this tragedy.
