Joy Gilchrist, 31 October 1996: Morton's History of Pendleton says that Joseph BENNETT Jr. (ca 1732-1808) was married to Hannah SLEASON. This is likely incorrect. Other sources say she was Hannah ELLSWORTH while still others claim she was Hannah STARNES. One source even gives Hannah's birth as 4 Aug 1734 in Boutetourt Co, VA and another gives the same date but says Rowan Co, NC.I have never seen any evidence for these dates or places.It's possible that Joseph could have been married twice and both wives were named Hannah. Seek any evidence on Joseph's marriages. Several BENNETT researchers are working to resolve numerous BENNETT mysteries. If you have any interest in the BENNETT family, please contact me. I have a large database on them and am most willing to share.
