Francis and Betsey Bennett
Hi!
I don't know of anything new about Francis. his and Betsey's memorials were passed on to me and I left them as they were. I agree that his year of birth is likely 1747(ish).

I've seen:
21 Nov 1745 - Family Data Collection - Births Record & Individual Records
2 Nov 1745 - Rhode Island, Vital Extracts, 1636-1899
abt 1747 - Vermont, Vital Records, 1720-1908
1750 American Genealogical-Biographical Index (AGBI)
abt 1747 - based on the stone made by his son, Solomon

Sure would be nice to have a paper that we can see with our own eyes!

I added the maiden name disclaimer to Betsey's bio.
:)

Booker T Washington Highland Park cemetery ohio
I don't have any information on this family. As I'm not related.

I've never talked to anyone at Highland Park Cemetery either,
Main Office: Highland Park Cemetery
Camp Forbes
25440 Harvard Avenue
Highland Hills, Ohio 44122
P: 216.348.7210
F: 216.348.7209
Tuesdays through Saturdays 8 am to 4:30pm

I'm sure your aware that the Cleveland Public Library has a necrology files on line.
CPL.org look under research.

If you've searched there before, also try Booker T Washington and than do a keyword search.

Hope this helps.

Texana Wilson article
Hi Cheryl, I'm going to e-mail you an article in the Sunday newspaper from Wheeling, WV . There is a Historic tour in the Greenwood Cem. this coming Sunday and one the people being portrayed is Texana Wilson. There are five pages I had to cut it down to scan it, I just thought you maybe interested in it. Also in April some volunteers reset some of the stones in Mt. Wood that had fallen off their base and the Wilson stone was one of them. Carla :)

Regarding your question
Where to you find so much of the biographical data that you find?

**********
I use a variety of sources. I usually start with GenealogyBank. If I do not find any biographical material there - I use a general search engine like DuckDuckGo, Dogpile, Google, etc. I use a variety of search terms to find information. Sometimes I use the name of the person or their name plus a spouse, their name plus their place of birth, etc.

During the search process newspaper articles may appear from databases like newspaperarchive.com. This database is one carried by many libraries and can be accessed from home using your library card and your pin number.

The first sentence in the bio section is about her name change. I found it interesting that even her Social Security record was under the name Murray H. Peck.
