Thank you for your reply. This is exciting. It is so difficult looking thru the fog and mist of time. Records were destroyed in fires and possibly by neglect or carelessness. You have given me food for thought and I want to pursue it, as well. I love what you have found. You've opened a new avenue for me. Thank you!!!
Yes, I have submitted a DNA sample and as far as I know, I'll be hearing something mid December, or so. They said it would take some time. I would love to stay in touch with you.
Here is how I have come to understand my ancestry:
My Dad: Gordon E. Bennett 1917-1994
Herbert E. Bennett 1887-1940
Walter Bennett c1851-unk
Rufus Bennett 1820-1889
Phineas Bennett 1784-1856
Caleb Bennett 1758-1830
Phineas Bennett 1732-1783
Joseph Bennett 1699-1762
John Bennett 1666-1745
John Bennett 1626-1691
Edward Bennett 1584-1645
I've listed some tentative ancestors beyond Edward, too.
I'm working on substantiating all of this, been at it for a few years, and still feel like I'm laying down the foundation. I want to build a house. :-)
You may write to me via email or thru this medium.
Again, Thank you!!
