Welcome to My Website!

    This section is about my great grandparents.

There names are Franklin & Susan Bennett.  In the year 1880, they lived in Norfolk New York.  During that time, they had 5 childen.  According to the obituary of Jennie Bennett Hall, she is their oldest child, our great grandmother Susan Bennett was previous married to a James Carbineau.  First I thought that Carbineau was Susan Maiden last name, so from the information that I got from the obituary, now I don't know what Susan maiden name is.  If anyone out there has any information about Susan Bennett, please E-mail me.

 

Franklin Bennett is the son of Francis & Catherine Bennett.  He was born on July 26, 1853.  When I did research on him, I got confused on the year of his birth because on his headstone, it had the year of 1850, but the United States Census, I found out that the year on his headstone was incorrect.  The date that he died is correct.
