    Notes 
    • Rachael Anderson was adopted by the Liston family at age 3. The Liston's were probably her aunt Charlotte Foshee who married a Liston.

      Rose Hill Cemetery Record says Rachel (wife) was adopted by a family named Liston in 1807. She was married by S. Hurin, J.P. to Nicholas Anderson.

      Death of Mrs. Rachel Bennett Died February 21 , 1881, at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Hannah J. Foster, in Mason, Ohio. Mrs Rachel Bennett, aged seventy-six years, seven months and twenty-six days.The deceased was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, June 25, 1804, and came to Warren County, Ohio, when very young. She joined the M. E. Church at Beadle Station, Miami Circuit, at the age of fifteen years, and was a consistent member for sixty-one years. She was married to Nicholas Bennett August 4, 1827. In 1852, she was called to pass through the deep waters of affliction in the loss of her husband. Mrs Bennett was a very industerious and hard working woman. Her life was characterized in doing good to others, no matter at what hour of the night or what the condition of the weather, she was always ready to go at a moments warning to relieve the suffering. Her life was also full of quiet Christian experience, and at last gave a cheerful testimony to the saving power of Christ, and expressed a willingness to go at her Master's call. Mrs. Bennett enjoyed ordinary good health until within about five weeks preceding her death. She took her bed at first by an inflamed limb, caused by falling on the icy walk. Erysipelas then set in,which, together with heart disease, baffled all medical skill. She suffered untold agonies for near two weeks when released by death.

      She retained her reasoning faculties until a very few moments before she passed sweetly away while lying in the arms of three of her four living children. Aunt Rachael has washed her robe and made it white in the blood of the Lamb. The burial took place from residence on Wednesday the 23rd, lamented by children, friends and neighbors who have known her only to respect and love her.
