I have the following

Joseph William Washington Bennett b 1832 MO d 1913 El Dorado CA (by death cert). m 1862 (where?)Francis Elizabeth Henderson. He was son of Wm M Bennett & Unisa (Nicey) Sheppard. His grandmothers are Nancy Wicker (w/o John Sheppard) & Agness ? (w/o John (B?) Bennett b VA 1775 to Madison Co MO by 1818 then d 1858 in Cape Co MO).

He, Joe B., went to CA in 1875 where he died in a snowstorm of apoplexy & exposure. His brothers, Erasmus & Damascus, also went to CA. We get this from Cape & Madison Co records, gravestones, Goodspeed's Hist of SEMO and a couple of nice researcher kinfolks - one in CA.

Don't show him in Washington CO MO but possible (other kin lived there - maybe a visit during census but he lived in CA) Also a review shows his grandmother Agness?? may be a Dillon. If so it would be nice as I have searched for her surname a long time (I
have a photo of her -died 1854 - amazing but true)

If you have more on Dillon would like to see source - a Washington Co Census?
