Hi, Angelic. My dad's grandmother was Elsie Bennett. Her father was Hiram Bennett, her mother Amanda Applegate.According to a posting on genforum, by Leo Matthew Basten, another relative,Amanda was one of the 10 children of Benjamin Applegate and Lavena (Laurena) of Indiana. I know that the family lived in Keokuk County, Iowa, for many years, Elsie Bennett was born in Maxwell, Iowa., which is near. Her brothers were Scott and Charles Bennett, her sister was Nora Bennett Kimrey.Please write back.If you would like names and dates, and a few pictures, I would be glad to trade!!!!
