A relative of mine told me that over 50 years ago, as a child, and something was even noted in a cemetery record book at the time as to some spaces of Levi M. Bennington's widow. The relative was thoroughly incorrect in what she told me - she was making it up and dramatizing something that never happened. Later I met Levi M. Bennington's daughter but didn't realize it until afterward, and the daughter told this relative where her father was buried, one time only. The relative, in front of me, was trying to apologize as to any improper information she had put out in the course of telling as fact a story that was not so. The daughter named the cemetery where her father was buried, but I did not clearly hear it; I thought she mentioned Lyonsville, or the other relative knew then, that as a vet, he could have been at Lyonsville and asked about it, and the daughter said "Yes," to something. She knew her father had been buried once.

The relative also thought a couple of other of our family members' remains had been moved and it has been an issue to straighten all of that. I believe the daughter indicated that her father had a stone. Someday a cemetery walker may find it and list it on FindAGrave if I or another descendant doesn't find it first.

Thank you for your effort.
