Hello John, my great great grandfather Hamilton Bennett's grave site is (located) from Pearsall on 1581 to Divot before crossing the Leona River, to your right, by a deer blind. He is buried there with his wife and daughter. His wife Margaret was his second wife. She was a McKinney, sister to Ellen Jane McKinney Bates who was my great great grandmother. If you pull up the Tarrant County 1850 Census Hamilton Bennett was on it.  Have you read the Trail Drivers of Texas? The book "Road Agents and Rattlesnakes" that stated that "Max Franks" outran the Indians; that was my great grandfather, Maxwell Franks. That letter you sent to my wife, I just read today, Charlotte Bennett is buried by her mother. She was supposed to have hung herself after they came to Frio County in 1858.  I need information as to where William Bennett is buried.  Anyone connecting to the above families, or having information as to where William Bennett is buried please e-mail Henry Prather
