William Bennett was born March 17, 1817 in Warren County, Ohio to Nicholas and Catherine Innes Bennett. He married Emmeline Cuddy on December 20, 1838 in Lebanon, Warren County, Ohio. Soon after his marriage he emigrated to Indiana, becoming one of the pioneer settlers of Boone County. As the writer remembers "Uncle Billy", he was a large old man, with snow white hair and beard, and was noted for his strict religious principles, being a faithful member of the Methodist church at Mechanicsburg. Uncle Billy was known as a great singer, and in the pioneer days, when musical instruments were very rare and church organs unknown, he was depended upon to lead the singing at meeting and funerals for miles around.

After the death of his wife Emmaline, some years after the war, William Bennett married (Mel)Vina Hedge, of Boone County. William Bennett died Sept 3, 1898, his wife, Vina, having then been deceased several years. William at death was 81 years old.
