Birth: Feb. 17, 1812
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Feb. 8, 1897
Monroe
Green County
Wisconsin, USA

Michael and Elizabeth (Donnelly) Bennett, were natives of Pennsylvania and Ohio, respectively. They were the parents of four sons and two daughters, all but one of whom are now living: Felix C.; Joseph, of Monroe; Angeline, the wife of William Parks of Hampton, Iowa; James W. of New Birmingham, Texas; Nancy A., the wife of Asa Bailey of Thornton, Iowa; and Wiley, deceased. The father was a farmer. He went to Ohio with his parents when a boy, and spent his earlier years in that State. In 1854, he moved to Wisconsin, and located on a farm in Washington township, seven and a half miles north of Monroe, and lived in that city until his death in 1897, at the venerable age of eighty-five years. His wife survived him until March, 1900, when she passed away at the age of eighty-six. They had lived together nearly sixty-five years, and were members of the Christian Church. He had been a man of considerable importance, and had held various Township offices when younger and more active. His father, Joseph Bennett, was of English and German descent. Mrs. Bennett's parents, Felix and Charity (McGuire) Donnelly, were of Scottish descent.
