My name is Robert Bennett McCarty Jr. After years of research on the McCarty side of my family, I decided to try and figure out where the "Bennett" came from in my name. My father had no idea and said that he was told that the Bennett’s were neighbors or something. Anyway, I noticed that your ggg grandfather was James Henry Grace who married Lacy Mobley. James Henry Grace is also a ggg grandfather of mine. If you can help me understand any of the possible Bennett connections I would certainly appreciate it. I noticed in your entrees on Genealogy .com that you had a Grace and Bennett relationship.
In my line, James Henry Grace married Lacy Mobley. Their daughter, Civility Honor Grace married Harmon Hatfield Hollimon Sr. and had a son Howell H. Holliman who married Louisa A. Preacher. They named one of their daughter’s "Hattie" Harriett “Bennett” Hollimon. This is where the “Bennett” started in our line, which was eventually passed down to my father and to me in the next several generations.
Any history or insight into the Grace/Bennett relationship would be greatly appreciated.
