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 don't know if Sargent was Elzyann's 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.
