Age 62

According to the church records in the church adjacent to the Atlantic Cemetery, although they indicate he is buried there, Arthur's exact grave location within the cemetery has been lost.

After researching things I have discovered that the headstone and plot depicted in the attached photo was an endowment by the Rev. Henry Johnson to another related Bennett family. Henry was married to May Frances Bennett, daughter of John W Bennett. She is buried in the same family plot with her infant daughter and father, John W Bennett.

The endowment was made to the family of Samuel Bennett (brother of John W Bennett)

My research has shown that the entire Samuel Bennett family is buried in the Holmdel Cemetery and Mausoleum and the plot in the Atlantic Cemetery was not utilized by them.

However, the Atlantic Church records show that Samuel is interred in that plot.

My conclusion is that it is possible that Arthur was buried in that plot and the records were mistakenly marked to indicate that Samuel is there.

The plot is located in the front of the Atlantic Cemetery (near the parking lot) on the extreme left as you face it.
