Thank you for the information.

I went through the various counties in New York looking for ones that had any Bennett families listed hoping to run across information on Henry and Maude.

I had the information on Scott and Pearl from the 1920 census but not the information on Silas and Mildred. The fact Henry was 5 was very helpful as I had no idea when he was born.

Also the fact that there was a Vetta Bennet listed as living with them was very interesting.

Your guess about Pearl and Mildred being sisters is correct. Silas and Scott were brothers. I have often wondered where these two sisters met the two brothers because of the age differences and also the fact that Scott and Silas were in the Dakotas and Pearl and Mildred lived in eastern Minnesota with their parents.

Again thank you so much for your assistance. I believe it will help me solve the mystery of Henry and Maude in the future.
