My ggrandfather, Charles M. Bennett, had a brother, John Pinion Bennett. John Pinion was born 29 August 1850 in MS and died 2 May 1899 in Hill County, TX. John and Charles' parents were John Jackson Bennett and Emaline(?). John Jackson Bennett b. 1812 SC John Pinion Bennett b. 1850 MS Charles M. Bennett b. 1845 MS Other brothers and sisters John Jackson Bennett b. 1876 MS (from Charles) John Jackson Bennett b. 1908 TX Linda Bennett (ME) John Pinion Bennett married Mary Perlina Polana Paradine Blocker on 21 February 1871 in Leake County, MS. Mary is the daughter of Isiah Blocker and Mary Ballard. They had 10 children and one was named Dennis Pinion Bennett.
I am guessing that Pinion may be a family name farther back or an in-law name, but have never seen a connection between Pinion and Bennett. Does anyone recognize this Bennett line in their Pinion family?
