Michael Bennett
Franklin Family
Nelta, thanks for the photos of the gravemarker for Susan F. Bennett, 1875-1961 and Barney Bennett, 1867-1905. They are my great grandparents, through my father, Marvin Glenn Bennett, and his father Jem Elmer Bennett.

The "F." in Susan's name stands for her paternal surname Franklin. She is the daughter of Reverend Thomas Elias Franklin (son of Jonathan Franklin) and Martha Davis.

From my count, that makes at least five generations that my family lived in Anacoco.

The biggest "hole" in my genealogy is that I cannot find any clue but one about where Barney Bennett came from. That clue comes from the 1910 US Census, where Susan (his widow at that point) indicated to the census taker that her deceased husband was from Canada. My research so far on that has given me nothing.

All I know about him is that he was shot as a night watchman at a lumber mill in Deridder, in 1905.

Do you know of any stories, documents, or other info that could lead me to Barney's parents, brothers sisters, et cetera? Anything would be helpful and greatly appreciated!

Keep up the great work!

Nelta, Thank you *very much* for the gravesite investigation of J M Bennett. While no marker was found, at least that was confirmed. Also, a clearer photo for both Susan F Bennett and Barney Bennett was greatly appreciated!

Capt. Dale Ellzey
Hi Nelta,
Thanks so much for the photo of Dale's grave. I went to college with him back in the early 70's. He died in a helicopter crash while serving his country. Keep up the good work.
