I am researching the Bentley family that lived in Burke County. Patterson Monroe Bentley, Jr was born 4 Jul 1879 (or 1889) to Patterson Monroe Bentley, Sr b. 1 Jun 1846 and Emma Nelson b. ca 1840. Bentley, Jr. Married Olga Carswell Chandler (b.29 Mar 1880 d.5 Feb 1948) sometime between 1913 and 1920. On 1 Jan 1949 he married Gladys Emma Meredith (b. 13 Aug 1917 d. 1 Dec 1981). Patterson Bentley, Sr and Emma Nelson possibly had 5 other children:
Lamar Bentley b. ca 1864
Missie Bentley b. ca 1868
Lee Bentley b. ca 1869
Lou (poss short for Louisa)Bentley b. ca 1872
George Bentley b. ca 1875
Minnie G Bentley b. Jun 1884 m. Stephen W Blount b. 14 Feb 1873 d.25 Sep 1957
From Census records I have found that Patterson Bentley, Sr. lived with a Sabrina Jackson and Elizabeth Bentley, whom I assume is his mother but have not been able to confirm. I have no information on who his father was.
If you have any research or information on the Bentley's or are a grandchild or great grandchild of Olga Chandler who has any information on her second husband please let me know. I'm stuck and really need some help!!!
