Hope this little note finds you well. I am Billy Walker a direct descendant of the Bennettís in Greenup County Kentucky and Scioto county Ohio. I have an extensive Biography of B.F. Bennett and all the Bennett family that I would really like to share with you. I really donít know how it works but if you want to transfer the Memorial to me I can update it with some really good information. Iím William Walker #46494965.
