Re: BRADFORD CO. PA Bennetts
Your Betsy Abbot was named Elizabeth. FYI Betsy is nickname for Elizabeth; Peggy would be the nickname for Margaret.
These notes below from "The Benjamin Family in America" by Gloria Wall Bicha & Helen Benjamin Brown, 1977, Library of congress catalog # 76-56023.
Looks like some of your Bennetts and my husband's Benjamins migrated together from Orange County, NY to what became Bradford County, PA, several years after things settled down after the Wyoming Massacre. Area was part of Luzerne County up until 1812-1813 when Bradford Co was first formed.
Amos and Anna [Duncan] Bennett had a daughter Martha Bennett who married Richard Benjamin. Martha Bennett was born 1750-1760 in Wyoming Valley, PA. She married Richard Benjamin b. 1740-1750 probably in Goshen, Orange County, NY. He died March 1815 at Bennett's Creek, Bradford Co, PA and is buried on Storr's farm [no headstone]. They had 13 children, 2 dying in infancy. We see this Richard Benjamin in 1796 as taxable inhabitant in Wyalusing District of what became Bradford Co, PA. On the 1810 Census we see him in Towanda Twp, Luzerne Co, PA.
Amos & Anna [Duncan] Bennett's son Benjamin Bennett married Elizabeth Abbott. Their daughter Elizabeth E. Bennett b. 1815 in Durell, Bradford Co, PA married John V. Benjamin who was born 1813 in Bradford Co, PA. John V. Benjamin was a son of John & Patty[Vincent] Benjamin.We see John V Benjamin in 1850 in Durell Twp, Bradford Co, PA and in 1860 in Asylum Twp, Bradford Co, PA. They had 10 children, with 4 sons serving in the Civil War.
Hope this offers you some help.
I have not actively studied the Benjamins because the Benjamin book gives a good outline and I've been kept busy enough with my CARR line, also in Bradford County, PA very early.
If and when I manage to get to the Historical Society I will look for more info on your names.

P.S. Your Lyda Carr does not ring any bells but if I find her I will let you know.
