James Bennett and his wife Sarah Hack made the difficult journey from Johnsburg, NY to Iowa by horse and wagon back in the mid 1840's. It is possible that he made the trip at the same time as his father Jeremiah, the dates seem to bring on that conclusion anyway. It has been told to the family that a cow was attached to the rear of the wagon for milk, and a bucket attached in such a way to the wagon that the movement of the wagon churned the milk into butter as they traveled. Their first born son William and John S. Bennett was born in Iowa. Some time between the time that John was born in 1846 and the time Roland was born in 1848 James Bennett his wife Sarah and son John had returned to Johnsburg, NY to live out the rest of their years.
James, Sarah, son John S., and his wife Rosella Labrum, along with two of John & Rosella's children Walter age 13 months and Emma L. age 22 years, Roland Bennett and his daughter Sarah who died at age 14 years, are all at rest in what is commonly referred to as the Garnet cemetery, or Weslyan Church Cemetery on Mill Creek. Located on the Garnet Lake Road, heading south out of Johnsburg, NY on this road, cemetery will be on the left side of the road.
