Re: Bennett/Williams/1860's/West Point/Clay

Do any of these Bennett's look familar? The Bennett's were practically run out of Clay Co., MS.

There is a story in the family of a local fair in McCondy, MS. If a man would fight the champion and win, there was a prize. James Franklin Bennett wrestled the champ to the ground. The champ had a heart attack and died. The Bennett family feared prosecution, and moved to AR. They settled in Nimrod, Yell Co.
