    Notes 
    • Obituary record sent to John E. Bennett found in a collection by Ron Tucker.

      Hannah Jane Bennett was born in Warren County, Ohio, June 18, 1840, and was married to Victor Foster in 1860.

      One son was born to this union, Elbert W. Foster, with whom she came to Kansas about 38 years ago. He died at Effingham, June 28, 1921.

      Grandma lived at Effingham for 18 years before going to Marceline, Mo., with her granddaughter Mrs. F. E. Tucker, three years ago.

      She died at her home in Marceline October 16, 1925. The body was taken to Horton, Kansas for burial Sunday October 18, by the side if her son.

      Grandma was a Seven Day Adventist, and they conducted the funeral services at the home in Marceline, assisted by the Christian minister, Saturday afternoon at 3:00 o'clock.

      The funeral offerings sent by friends and neighbors were beautiful. Grandma Foster was the youngest and the last of the original Bennett family of Ohio, whose history was published in a book form. They were said to be the seventh
      largest family in the United States. The book contains many interesting stories and pictures of early days and family ties, and now is in the possession of Mrs. Tucker.

      W. H. Tucker met the Foster funeral party in St Joe, Sunday, and accompanied it to Horton. Few people are afflicted as Mrs. Hannah Foster was. She had suffered from a malignant growth on her breast for over 60 years.

      Grandma Foster, who lived with her granddaughter, Mrs. Frank Tucker, at Marceline, Mo., passed away last week, and was buried beside her son in the Horton cemetary. The Tuckers accompanied the remains to Horton. Grandma Foster
      and her son lived in Horton several years ago before they moved to Effingham.

      Mrs. Foster has been ill with a cancer for many years and bedfast most of the past year. She was a lovely old lady, up in the eighties, who had the devoted and effectionate care of her granddaughter. With all the care, of her famnily
      of five small children, no one ever heard Mrs. Tucker complain about her being a burden, but always was cheerful and willing to care for her. Grandma Foster reared Mrs. Tucker and the latter certainly reciprocated for her kindness in a most wonderful manner.

      Hannah Jane Bennett, fourth daughter of Nicholas and Rachel Bennett, was born in Warren county, Ohio, June 18, 1840, and was married to Victor S. Foster, December 9, 1858. "Aunt Hannah" as one of the two surviving members of the
      large family of Nicholas Bennett, is a person of interest to the Bennett family. She resides with her son Elbert Foster, at Effingham, Kansas. Aunt Hannah has been an invaluable aid to the writer in preparing this record. Her memory and activity are remarkable for one of her age, and she writes a most interesting letter. Much of the information concerning the early history of the family was contributed by Aunt Hannah, and she is most anxious to see this work in print

      Taken from "History and Record of Nicholas Bennett Sr. and His Descendants".
