Ok am trying to find the familys of these sisters
Margaret Elsie Bennett b 1906 bTn
Estelle "Stella" Bennett b 1908/9 Tn
Virginia Bennett b 1915 WV
Edna Georgia Bennett b 1911NC HAVE HER IS My granny d in D.C.
bro Zeb b 1914 Nc according to 1920 census Wyoming co WV
bro Thomas Edward b 11-20-1912 Avery NC (Per my cousin Joan his daughter and his delayed Birth certificate)

Now one oddity I have found is there is no other mention of Zeb (1914_ mentioned anywhere,I even have photos of the girls with Tom and do not find young Zeb. I have not found even a death record for him.
These are the children of Zeb Thomas Bennett b1886 Mitchell, NC died in 2-16-1960 Elizabethton,Carter co TN, {If any one could please find me an obituary on him and or a will ,would be greatfull} s/o Alford Wm.Bennett who was born 1855 Yancy NC and died 12-27-1936 Newland Avery{would love copy of obit and will if possible} & Hannah Elizabeth Deyton 5-10-1854 Cherokee NC 010-17-1932 Avery NC
Alford was the s/o Uriah Baxter Bennett b 5-18-1835 Nc d 6-12-1828 Relief,Nc & Dicey Clarrissa Briggs b 2-10-1828 d 11-24-1911 NC
Ok now Zeb's wife was
Mollie Etta Laws b 1-25-1886 Nc and died 1963 Nc

In the 1920 Slab Fork,Wyoming co WV census the family is listed as
Zeb Bennett age 38
Mollie Bennett age 38
Vergie b 1907 TN
Estele b 1909 TN
Georgia b 1911 Nc
Zeb b 1914 Nc
Virginia b 1915 Wv
It does not even show Tom who was born in 1912 ,am rather confused on this.
I do know that Virginia and Estelle were in Wayne co Mi near their sister Georgia & her husb {Evert Pete Trent} in the 1930 census ,Virginia was md as well.
I know that Tom E.Bennett md twice but had one daughter my cousin Joan Bennett ,and lived and stayed to my knowledge in the Tn/Nc area.
There are some family photo's on my sight of this group and would love for anyone to check them out to see if they can be reconized.
Thank You for any help
