Query: Centre Co. - Martha Jane BENNETT I'm searching for information about my g-g-grandmother Martha Jane BENNETT. She was born December 25, 1835 in the Bald Eagle Valley area of Central PA. She went by the name Jane instead of Martha. She married George W. COWHER on February 24, 1853. She died December 26, 1913 and is buried in Black Oak Cemetery, just outside Port Matilda, Centre Co., PA. I have no information about her parents or siblings. I have been told by relatives that there is Native American heritage in the family but have been unable to trace it. I have just recently started searching for my PA Bennett line and have not found very much. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and Happy Holidays. --Nancy
