      WILLIAM BENNETT & EMMELINE CUDDY BENNET (VINA HEDGE 2nd)
      William Bennett was born March 17, 1817 in Warren County, Ohio and married
      Emmeline Cuddy December 20, 1838. Soon after his marriage he emmigrated to
      Indiana, becoming one of the pioneer settlers of Boone County. As the writer
      remembers "Uncle Billy", he was a large old man, with snow white hair and
      beard, and was noted for his strict religious principles, being a faithful
      member of the Methodist church at Mechanicsburg. Uncle Billy was known as a
      great singer, and in the pioneer days, when musical instruments were very rare
      and church organs unknown, he was depended upon to lead the singing at meeting
      and funerals for miles around.

      After the death of his wife Emmaline, some years after the war, William Bennett
      married Vina Hedge, of Boone County. William Bennett died Sept 3, 1898, his
      wife, Vina, having then been deceased several years. William at death was 81
      years old.

      Taken from History & Record of Nicholas Bennett Sr. son of William Bennett and
      His Descendants.


      According to Mechanicsburg Cemetery Record, Catherine had a twin born with
      her, male, Almon L. Both died the same day and are buried in the Mechanicsburg
      Cemetery. They lived 1 mo 21 days. Robert, Martha, & John L. are also buried in
      the Mechanicsburg Cemetery.

      William moved to Boone County in fall of 1838, to Clinton Township
