Bennett Photos: Speculation #1

1 – The men in Bennett #1, #14, and #22 share a great deal of similar features. In #1 and #22 they are sitting in the same chair, indicating the photos could have been taken at the same time. The photograph of Bennett #22 is Charles E. Bennett and his wife, Ella Rudy. Charles had two brothers: Benjamin Franklin and Henry Arthur. They married Stella Malara Dietrick and Minerva C. Schultz, respectively.

Speculation #2

 During a visit with Oscar Wallace Bennett on 17 October 1995, he exclaimed that Bennett #6 looked like his Dad, Benjamin Franklin Bennett. Also, Oscar had a replica of this photo album I possess, along with many of the same photos. Most likely someone had prepared the albums for both Charles and his brother, Benjamin Franklin. The photos in Oscar’s album were not identified. Was a third album prepared for brother Henry Arthur Bennett, and does it identify the family in the photos?
