Hello,
My great grandmother, Mary Ellen Bennett, who was married to Charles Hinkle, sister, Nola May Bennett married Gilbert Dahmer. Both of these people were born in Pendleton County, WV. They moved down into Pocahontas, WV and settled there.
I do not know any of my distant cousins down your way.
I have a tree up on World Connect if anyone is linked to us.
They had 12 children, from what I've seen, and not all lived. The women cousins who lived last names changed and from what I've seen these are the surnames they married into: Livesay, Curry, Sheets, Moore, McLure, Good. This is all generation 1, so there are more different surnames when the women married their men.
I had only heard good things about my great grandmother Bennett, so I don't know any of the Bennett line. You can see it all on my page. I would really like to hear from any cousins from this line. I think we need to find the Bennett line and have a reunion somehow. Thanks.
