Regarding Soyeryne Bennet the elder.

Do you have lots of left-over turkey? Benjamin Franklin wanted to make the turkey the national bird, but the bald eagle won out. I think Franklin had the right idea.

I transcribed the obituary for Mr S. You can delete the scanned image at your convenience. I know I have lots left to transcribe for my part, but I only transcribe them as I happen come upon them. (I don't seek them out. Shhhh!)

All the best!

RE: 124th NY
Both William H Hatch and James A Crist are " Reported to have died at Andersonville. Meaning they have no marked graves nor is there any documentation showing they died there. Unfortunately there are but 460 buried as unknown, however there are more than a thousand " Reported to have died at Andersonville. So... there is no way to place a grave. Even if there is only one reported to have died on that date and only one grave marked as unknown,,,, it still does not mean a specific soldier is buried in that grave.

RE: Charlotte Sackett Weygant
All set. It' too bad Find-A-Grave doesn't send email notifications as I Would not have seen your second request had I not logged back in. Perhaps there is a setting I need to change.

No worries, all set though. It's a beautiful monument in a nice place. I suspect most would think the Colonel would have his own nice large monument with Charlotte as he of course is a prominent Newburgh Historical figure in his own right not to mention as a leader of the 124th. But it is what it is.

RE: re: Margaret Nelle
Hello! Sorry for a late reply. I was not active on here for a little while. I usually am.

Anyways, I believe it says "S. Roadhouse, 30 m.c.". I compared the "3" with the "5" in the year she died, where it says "1815" and it appears to be a 3 rather than a 5. I am unsure what "m.c." could mean. I've never seen it either, but it would interest me greatly to find out. If I ever do, I'll let you know. I do wonder how one would find that out though. There isn't much information on these kinds of things on the internet, it seems.

I believe it to be S. Roadhouse because of the way the letter doesn't loop around at the bottom as a cursive L usually does. S and L are similar, as are 3 and 5, unfortunately.

As for Canadian censuses, there were a few random ones from 1825 through 1861. There is not a lot of information on these, and I am not entirely sure what they are about. They seem to not be considered as censuses, because real national censuses began in 1871 every ten years. Starting in 1971, they occur every 5 years, but I digress.

How did you know this stone was signed by him? Or, rather, what specifically made you interested in this stone, especially because you are not from the area?

If you need any other images, let me know. I go to most of the cemeteries around this general area.

Again, my apologies for the late reply.

RE: Stephen Utter, Andersonville
I can easily send you records in a file for specific breakdowns. I can send for any State.. I can send for any specific regiment and I can send specifically for any individual company of prisoners held or died at Andersonville.

RE: Stephen Utter, Andersonville
If you or any members of your other groups need research at Andersonville, I do it for free. Having been a historian at Andersonville for the NPS for 13 years,, and several years since I left them, I have copies of the Andersonville Historic sites databases and I have all Union grave photos on disk. I am happy to share. Any request can be sent to

Benjamin Franklin Bennett
By the way, the obit you alerted me to from the Pennsylvania State Library has been transcribed and added to the memorial along with an interesting legal case I found on him.

RE: Bennet photo.
Is the blog affiliated with the Minisink Valley Historical Society?
