Looking for information on the Henry BENNETT and Nancy HOUSE Family.
Henry BENNETT b. abt 1810 in VA.
Nancy HOUSE b. abt 1790 in VA.
Since there is such an age difference, I am wondering if this was Nancy's maiden name and if she was married before.

They had three daughters:
Pattie J. m. unknown MAY.
Elizabeth m. William CLARK.
Minerva A. m. William JOYCE.

I know they had two sons:
John H. BENNETT, b. abt 1831 in VA, m. Martha A. DUKE.
William H. BENNETT, b. abt 1836 in NC, m. Mary Frances L. Unknown.

1860 Census shows William H. BENNET and family living in South District, Patrick, VA, living next door to his brother John H. BENNET and family. Roll: M653_1369, Page: 988, year: 1860.

1870 Census shows John H. BURNETT family living in Dan River, Patrick, VA, next to his parents Henry and Nancy BENNETT. Roll: M593_1670, Page 458, image: 237, year: 1870.

I would like to find the parents of Henry BENNETT and Nancy HOUSE. Or any other information on this family.

Thank You for your time and help.
