He was married in 1864 to Miss Cynthia E. Arnold, who survives him Although Mr. and Mrs. Bentley had no children of their own they brought up two Calvin Harrington of Oswego City, Neb., and Mrs. C.M. Lovejoy of Ayer, Mass. who is now here to look after Mrs. Bentley's declining years. Mr. Bentley was a blacksmith by trade, and for many years was engaged in that business.
