RE: Betsey Gardner Bennett
hi Michael,
No, I have not done my DNA. Perhaps one of these days, if I can pull together the funds...
my line is from Betsey Gardner Bennett, daughter Jane Bennett Cole, son Oliver H P Cole, son Perry Albertus (Bert) Cole, son Bennett Dewey Cole, son Robert L. Cole, Sr. and then me. I knew my Great-grandfather (Bert Cole) and from there on down.
Thanks for responding. Nice to share with a distant cousin :)

RE: Betsey Gardner's parentage is closer to prooved
That makes you my 5th cousin 3x removed.
My dna is at ancestry, ftmdna and
The easiest way for us to compare is for you to use the fast and easy transfer (copy) into and then advise me of your kit number.
my kit number is A092019.
next communications should be thru our e-mail addresses and hope we can prove that Betsey was a Gardner.
thank you

Betsey Gardner's parentage is closer to prooved
Elder Benjamin Gardner was my 4th great grandfather and married to Jemima, probably Reynolds.
Ydna testing shows I am a Gardner and autosomal dna testing ties me to Francis Bennett's descendants.

Have you had your dna tested and there could be a match to me?

thank you

Betsey Gardner Bennett
Betsey Gardner Bennett is my 5th great-grandmother as well, through son Solomen Bennett, his daughter Jane Bennett, her son, Oliver H P Cole, his son, Perry Albertus (Bert) Cole, his son, Bennett Cole, and down to his son, my father, Robert Cole. I have been trying to find information on Betsey but just run into a wall trying to find her parents. all info I have found list her as born in Pownal, and she is indeed buried in the Gardner Cemetery in Pownal, but no where can I find information on her birth or who her parents actually were. have you ever found any of this info or do you know anyone else who has. there is a lot of talk in the family about Native American blood, and I have not found it in any of the other people's records, but I have come to wonder if perhaps Betsey was actually born a Native American and taken in by the Gardner family. as a local minister I can imagine them taking her in. do you know anything more about her? her parents? I hope you see this...
thank you!
