Asa Bennett, b. 1810 in NC, m. Elzyann Sargent on 9 Nov 1828 in Henry Co., IN.Prior to marrying Asa Bennett, Elzyann had a daughter, Mercy Rebecca T. Sargent, b. ca. 1825 in IN.
I'm searching for info on Elzyann - was Sargent her married surname or maiden name?Census info indicates Elzyann was b. ca. 1805 in VA, father b. in France and mother b. in VA.There are multiple spellings for Sargent, and the name could possibly be Largent.
Asa and Elzyann Bennett were enumerated in Wayne Co., IN (1830), La Porte Co., IN (1850), Starke Co., IN (1860 & 1870), and Burt Co., NE (1880 & 1885).Other researchers indicate Asa d. 1889 and Elzyann d. 1890, both in Burt Co., NE.
Mercy Sargent m. William Mosbarger in 1840 in Montgomery Co., IN, and they moved to Clarke Co., IA.
Asa & Elzyann Bennett had 8 children:Thomas F.S., Elizabeth Ann, Susanna, Rebecca, John Lewis, Mary Ann Hester, Sarah Ann, and Nancy Jane.
Would like to hear from anyone who can shed some light on this family.
