The 1900 census shows "U. Bennett", in Green Mountain (Bee Branch) township, aged 39. Does anyone know if this is Uriah Bennett? My aunt, Etta Bennett Bradshaw is listed as the oldest daughter, born in 1887, and I would like to know exactly who her parents were. Toe River Heritage says that Uriah Bennett was a slightly different age, and had only one child. This U. Bennett had nine or ten, but for some reason I believe they are the same people, and the Heritage story is flawed.

Thanks for any explanation!
