From a 1910 Nance County, Nebraska, newspaper clipping file, transcribed by Linda Berney:

Old Settler Dies -
Many of the people of Fullerton [Nebraska] will remember the genial courtesy and pleasant smile of Dr. Bennett, who one lived and practiced his profession here. Those same old friends will learn with sorrow and regret of his passing away from this world to the beyond a few days ago. His late home was San Diego, California.

He was a loving husband and a kind father, a loyal, patriotic man, serving the country he loved so well in the civil war.

He was laid to rest in the G.A.R. Cemetery in San Diego, amid a profusion of flowers, and by his brother comrades, who said of him, "No better words can be said of any man, than of comrade Bennett, who plucked a week and planted a flower wherever a flower would grow."

Mrs. Dr. Bennett, who was a valuable member of the W.R.C.'s is left to mourn the loss of this dear companion, and the heartfelt sympathies of the sisters here go out to her and her family in their loss and affliction.
