AKA: George Coda Bennett


George C. Bennett was born in Carroll County, Illinois on April 9, 1866. In the spring of 1869, he went west with his parents, who settled in Grant township, Tama County, Iowa, where he attended the public schools and afterwards High School in Reinbeck, Iowa. He made farming his business.

He was married on February 25, 1896 to Lydia A. Freet, who was born on February 26, 1864 and was the daughter of Hiram and Priscilla Myers Freet.

Early in the spring of 1897 he was taken sick and died on April 13, 1897. His widow made her home with his parents until her marriage to David P. Eddy of Reinbeck, Iowa on August 20, 1902.

Discovered the following info for G.C. Bennett, son of Eli and Mary. G.C. was born in ca. 1866, such as is the case with son, Coda G.

There is no son, G.C. listed in the 1885 census info (see Eli's memorial). I am believing that Coda and G.C. may be the same person and am entering the details below for future investigation:
