The Bennett Family of Texas, Georgia, Virginia and England

I have just spent several hours posting information about the THIRTEEN generations of our BENNETT family. Beginning with Margaret Elizabeth Bennett and going back TWELVE generations to her earliest known ancestor, John BENNETT, of Wiveliscombe, Somerset, England. My two main sources for the earliest records are:

Finding Your Forefathers In America by Archibald F. Bennett, Secretary and Librarian of The Genealogical Society at Salt Lake City, Utah, Bookcraft Company, Salt Lake City, Utah, c 1957. I have a First Edition of this book in my possession.

And online at the “Bennetts of Pittsylvania County, Virginia, Genealogy of the Bennett Family” website at:

To see the genealogy go here: Margaret Elizabeth Bennett (1851-1891), or you can enter “Bennett” into the search window at the site.

I am still adding more information, but you can see what’s there right now. 🙂
