I did locate their son Abram Walter Bennett and have requested a link to his mother.


NOTE- Several days ago I was contacted by Carman D. Bennett Merritt who wondered if I had any knowledge of her ancestor, Lucius Americus Bennett, and a possibility of his being related to Sarah's husband James Bennett. I do not, but in reviewing Sarah's parentage I am unsure of who her parents were and I am investigating. I will be adding notes to this memorial as I sift through records. There are several Sarah A. Walrods in the 1942 genealogy. KG- 13 Feb 2017

Her parents likely may be:

Abram Walrod

Julia Anna Lawer


I have had her parents as:
Abraham Walrod (1789 - 1863)
Catherine Redman Walrod (1791 - 1842)

But reassessing this, and as no tree on Ancestry agrees with that relationship, I will change her parents to "Devil" Abe and Julia Lawer. (Her surname erroneously given as "Sawyer" in the 1942 Walrod genealogy.)
