Yes, this is the same William Bennett. He married Elizabeth Shurr. Don't know much about Elizabeth except the family rumor that she was a "Kentucky Belle". However she is buried in the Gardner-Bennett Cemetery in Glen Campbell, PA She was born Sept 6 1792 and died Sept 6 1863 aged 71 years according to the tombstone. William also is buried there and his stone reads: born September 18,1800 - died March 31,1872.
Their children were:
Eliza Jane Bennett, b.18 March 1824; d. 26 May 1909; m. Jonathan Walker Gardner.
Joseph Bennett, b. 19 April 1826; d. 24 Dec. 1855; m. Elizabeth Lingafelt. On December 22, 1845, Joseph Bennett, at age 19, received 247 acres of warranted land in Clearfield County.
John Bennett, b.28 Aug. 1828; d. 22 Feb. 1899; m. Sarah Jane Gardner. (This is the line from which I am descended)
Nancy Anne Bennett, b.10 Jan. 1832; d. 10 Dec. 1884; m. Walker Billings.
Isaac Bennett, b. 19 Dec. 1833; d. 19 Nov. 1891; m. Lucy Jane (Reed) Dye (This is your line)
Henry Bennett, d. 17 Dec. 1887; m. Sarah Hopkins.
Except for Isaac, all of William and Elizabeth's children are buried in the Gardner-Bennett Cemetery at Glen Campbell.
This is quoted from the book "Ancestors and Descendants of Norris and Elizabeth Bennett"
One detail: Elizabeth Shurr was a daughter of Adam and Barbara Shurr.
I tried to find the gravestone for Isaac Bennett, which is supposed to be next to Jane (Reed) Dye and her first husband, and located not too far from Glen Campbell, but to the east. However, I ran out of time and never did locate it. I have family that lives in Punxsutawney, PA and when I visit them I try to do a little genealogy.
William's mother, Anna Mary Grove Bennett, is buried in Burnside at the IOOF Cemetery. She died October 18, 1865 at age 81. She lived with her youngest son Isaac, who was William's brother.
William's father, Joseph Bennett, died in Lewisberry, York, PA in about 1813. After several trips to York, I have given up trying to locate a gravestone for him and I am convinced that he was buried at the Bat Pen Burial Ground at Lewisberry. It is the Old Union Lutheran and Reformed Church cemetery and since Anna Mary's parents were married at the Old Salem Lutheran Church, it seems likely that Anna Mary and Joseph attended a local Lutheran Church and with his untimely death leaving a widow and six children she couldn't afford a stone. This church has been gone for many years and I don't know how to locate records. The cemetery is untended and in fact, half has been moved for a new road.
Anyway, I can give you more information, much more information. My family has pretty well researched back from William except for a glitch on his parents. We are almost positive that his grandparents were Joseph Bennett and Rebecca Fincher, Quakers. But we are having a dispute over whether his father was Isaac or Joshua, both sons of Joseph and Rebecca. About that time the family was dropping away from the Quakers, so records are scarce. I believe that his father was Joshua, but some other family members think he was Isaac. We will probably never know.
I have lots and lots of information. Start with this and then let me know what you want next.

ps. please excuse me if there are any typos. and feel free to ask for info, nothing pleases people who are into genealogy as much as being able to supply info to others.
