Isabella Hardesty Bennett
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 11, 1796
Kentucky, USA
Death: Dec. 3, 1880
Spencer County
Kentucky, USA

Isabella was the daughter of Caleb and Susannah Hardesty. She married Samuel Bennett in 1819 in Nelson County. Together they had at least four children, probably five, as in the 1840 Federal Census there were 7 total individuals living in the household. They owned a farm and were some of the first settlers of Spencer County.

It is recorded in the minutes of the First Baptist Church of Taylorsville and in the book "The Hardesty Clan" by Charles Hardesty that Isabella is buried in Valley Cemetery, however no stone for her has been recorded in any known transcription. Being that Valley Cemetery was not 'officially' a cemetery until 1889, it is probable that she was buried on land that later became Valley Cemetery - her son-in-law, Oliver Perry Tichenor, was one of the founders of Valley Cemetery.
