Hi Jaye,
Not sure if I can be of any help, as I don't have an Amos Bennett on the tree I'm researching (at least not yet, anyway), but would you know in what part of Kentucky your Bennett line lived? Mine were in Maysville, Mason Co., Kentucky before they moved out to Illinois and then Kansas. I've found quite a number of other Bennetts (that I have yet to prove are related to the line I'm researching) also living in the general Maysville/Mason Co., area of Kentucky ... that may be a place to start. Just a thought.

Hi Brigid,
The Bennetts that I'm looking for came from Knox Kentucky, and Williamsburg, Whitley, Kentucy.
Amos Bennett came from Tennessee his father Ezekiel die in Schuyler County, Missouri, not sure where he was born.
alot of the bennetts are still around there. I don't know who they are. I know that my side of the family moved to Oklahoma. then they move to California. John and Obedience "Bibby" MAYS she is from knox Kentucky. I beleived they moved to Whitley Kentucky. Not sure yet.
Does that help. Jaye

Benjamin Franklin Bennett was my great grandfather. His son Andy Bennett was my grandfather. My Father was James Bennett. I have a lot of history on them if anyone wants to contact me at hulsey-d@cox.net. Benjamin is buried in Lexington, OK. I'm also trying to find out if there is going to be a family reunion in Whitley County, Kentucy in 2009. My Aunt (Andy's daughter) is 91 and we would like to bring her to the reunion.
