I am trying to find my great grandmother Bennett. She was married to James A. Bennett. Their first child, according to the census, was named Mary E. (probably Elizabeth) and they called her Lizzie. She was born 1879 AR.
I found this Lizzie Bennett in Denton Cemetery. She died 1899 which would explain why she wasn't on the 1900 census in Canadian County, Ok with James A. Bennett and his children. The information says she was the wife of James Bennett.
Also, buried in the same cemetery is James E. Bennett born May 18, 1898 and died January 29, 1899 and the information says son of James and Lizzie Bennett.
Another child, Frank Bennett is also buried there. He was born December 30, 1895 and died February 17, 1899. Also says son of James and Lizzie Bennett.
Does anyone know anything else about this Lizzie Bennett? If this is the one I am looking for, their other children were Mary E. Bennett born 1879 (Lizzie) who married James Moses Sanders; Sarah J. Bennett born 1893(Josie) who married Ode Asher and then Abbott Tarlton Gregory; Mattie B. Bennett born 1883(my grandmother) who married William Benjamin H. Vinson; Willie T. Bennett born 1890 AR (no other info on him); Charley Bennett born 1885 in AR (no other info on him);
I believe James A. Bennett died between 1900 and 1910 because Josie was living with her sister, Lizzie on the 1910 census and she was listed as 15 years old.
Any information on this Lizzie would be so much appreciated. I would like to find out one way or the other if this is my great grandmother. Thanks for your time. Peggy
