Gallia County
Ohio, USA
Death: Feb. 6, 1909
Perry County

born: September 12,1824 Gallipolis, Gallia County, Ohio
died: February 4, 1909 in Clayton Township, Perry County,Ohio

The news of the sudden passing from the earth of Richard Pious Bennett, at his home in Clayton Township, Saturday afternoon, cast a gloom over his many friends. Mr. Bennett was in his usual health and transacted business here the day previously, meeting his friends in his ever jovial matter. At the time of the visit of the dread and final summons, he was seated in a chair at his home and died without a struggle.

R.P. Bennett was born in Gallia County Ohio in 1824 and came to this county from Lancashire, England with his parents (Robert Bennett and Cecelia Cuban Bennett) when he was one year old; where he resided until called from this earth. In 1853 he was married to Elizabeth McDonald, daughter of John and Margaret McDonald. To this union 12 children were born, nine of whom survive, viz: Albert J. of Junction City; John C. of Wilbren; George C. of this place; Margaret E. Hammond of Columbus; Miss Elizabeth E. of the home; Emma Caroline Longstreth of Clayton Township and Mrs. Mary V. Weiner of San Toy.

Mr. Bennett was an honest, industrious, upright man, a conscientious and faithful Christian, and commanded respect where he was known, and the world is better for having lived among us for more than four score years.

His funeral services were held at St. Rose's Catholic Church, Monday morning 10o'clock a.m. under the auspices of the Holy Name Society, of which he was consistent and loyal member. Solemn requiem high mass was celebrated by Rev. Fr. Cush, who spoke in eulogistic terms on the virtues of the deceased. Internment in Maplewood Cemetery.

(Mr. Bennett as a widower married Isabell Riffle (5-10-1837 to 11-5-1906).
