Dorothy - I have a Jerusha WANZER, b.@1745 in Fredrickstown, Dutchess Co., NY. Father's
name is reported to be Thomas and she had a sister named Mercy who married Nathaniel BENNETT. Jerusha married Nathaniel's brother, Abraham BENNETT, both sons of Abraham BENNETT and Silence HICKOX. Jerusha and Abraham named a son, born 1781, Comfort Bennett...a name that had not been found in the Bennett family prior to this child. Abraham Bennett died in Warwick, NY in 1795 and his wife died in Big Flats, Chemung County, NY in 1839. I'm wondering if there might be a connection here???
