Josephine Bennett

DIED.
BENNETT. At Carlisle, Ohio, on Christmas morning, Mrs. Josephine, wife of Mr. Hampton Bennett, in the 34th year of her age.

Funeral services at the Christian Church on last Sabbath.

Mrs. B. was very ill of typhoid fever for some six weeks and a week ago her friends had hope of her recovery, but a relapse took place and the Angle of Death hovered over her until her spirit took its flight to a better world.

She was a most estimable and highly cultivated lady, a very successful educator whose loss in the prime of life is greatly deplored by our whole community. We deeply sympathies with her bereaved husband and two little daughters at their loss.


The funeral services of Mrs. Bennet, held at the Christian Chapel, on last Sabbath, were peculiarly solemn and impressive. The immense audience which poured in through the incessant storm of rain to fill that large Chapel, was but a fit expression of the high esteem in which she was held by this entire community. While we have no disposition to write the biography of one so dearly loved in life, and so highly honored in death; we cannot say less than that in the death of our lamented sister: the community has lost one of its most respected citizens, the public one of its most faithful and efficient teachers, and humanity one of those firm, yet sweet and gentle spirits whose short visit to earth was but a continued and blessed mission of mercy to all with whom it came in contact. But if our community has met with a mournfully sad loss, what must be the painful sadness of that widowed mother and heart sorrowing of that most affectionate husband and those two little motherless girls. But in the midst of their deep grief it must be a consolation to them to know that they no only have the sympathy of this entire community but more and infinitely better, - what is to them a loss, is to child, wife and mother an eternal gain.

“Ah, ‘tis in heaven, where Christ has gone,
Our friends with angels dwell:
Where we may hope to meet again,
Those here we loved so well.”

Robert Huston Bennett

In speaking of the death of Squire Bennett, of Mason, the Times-Star says:  "He came to Cincinnati in 1840 with but twenty-five cents in his pocket.  He had but a penny left after paying for supper and lodging.  He went bravely forth the next day to find employment and his courage won.  After years of labor, in which offices of honor and trust were bestowed upon him, he departs to an eternity of peace."
