This cemetery is name for family of Ebenezer Baldwin, who built Tunnel Mill south of cemetery.

Bennett Cemetery

Things have changed quite a bit over the past 20 years here. County Road 100 S. 
has been extended and now goes all the way to the railroad tracks and  
around a housing addition called Country Meadows which is on the north 
side of CR 100s and loops around in a circle. Bennet Cemetery is on 
the south side of CR100s 1/4 mile from intersection of state road 7 
and CR 100s. It is on private property and in need of repair (there 
are trees and briars growing up in it...it's a shame). To get to the 
cemetery, you turn right onto a private lane and then bear right at 
the "Y" up to a house. Bennet Cemetery is located south of the house a 
short walk (maybe 150 feet). These are nice people and would allow 
visitors, I'm sure. Hope this helps those folks wishing to find this 
cemetery.  Thank You-Gary Smith for this updated information!
