Death: Nov. 23, 1911


Mrs. Amanda Bennett, wife of James C. Bennett, one of the most highly esteemed residents of the city, died at 7:30 o'clock Thursday night at her home on Washington avenue. Her death was due to an attack of pneumonia, but Mrs. Bennett had been in failing health for the past several months, not being able to leave her home.

She was born in Fayette County, Indiana December 9, 1839, making her at the time of her death seventy-two years, eleven months and fourteen days of age. Her early life was spent in Connersville and just a few months prior to the beginning of the civil war her family removed to that city. In the year 1873 she was united in marriage to Philip McLain, and she and her husband came to this city to reside. Mr. McLain died in 1874 and on September 10, 1875 she was married to James C. Bennett, who with one daughter, Mrs. George Kent, survive her.

The funeral services will be conducted at her late home, 230 West Washington avenue, at 2:30 o'clock Saturday afternoon, the Rev. W. G. Clinton, of the First M.E. Church, officiating. Interment will be made in Forest Hill Cemetery under the direction of Ralph J. Edwards.
