      Early Life and Times of Boone County, Indiana, published May 1877, republished 1974

      HENRY I. BENNETT Was born in Warren County, Ohio, June 24, 1823, and came to Boone County, Indiana, in October, 1844, located in Clinton Township. Was married to Sarah Whitham, in Warren County, Ohio, December 23, 1843. The following are their childrens names: Robert, died in Andersonville Prison in October, 1864; Martha C., married to Marion Pavy, reside in Kirkland, Indiana; Mary A., married to George D. Hardesty, reside in Kansas; Rachael, married to Joseph Beach, reside in Washington Township; Nicholas E., married to Ida M. Anderson, reside in Kansas; John W., married to Mattie Dewall, live on the farm; Silas W., married to Elizabeth McLance, live with the old folks on the farm; Henry M., died in infancy; Rozella, married to Charles Kersy, reside in Smith County, Kansas; Adra A., married to Lewis K. Holmes, reside in Clinton County, Indiana.

      Mr. B. served sixteen years as justice of peace in his township. Has joined in marriage and preached more sermons than almost any other man in the county. He has spent much time in the study of the scriptures, and is well informed. Mr. B. was also one of the pioneer school teachers, having taught in this and Clinton Townships for years. Mr. and Mrs. Bennett are a deserving couple and know all about pioneer life. At their friendly home they have entertained many since their coming to this county.

      They have lived to see the woods cleared away, and well-cultivated fields rise in every direction; the log cabin displaced, and the more comfortable buildings take their place. While getting material for this work it was our good fortune to stop with this good old pioneer couple, and to listen to the interesting recitals of hardships endured by them.

      In person, Mr. B. is rather under the medium size and of fair complexion. Long may this couple live to enjoy the fruits of their toil. Mr. B lives in the north part of the county, two miles east of Mechanicsburg, and one mile south of Clinton County line.
