I've been flipping through a copy of some geneology work that a distant relative did concerning my family line and I thought it helpful to post that information here. The research is well done but I highly suggest reinforcing this information with the use of recognized authoritative sources. In no way is the information to be considered a primary source. This posting simply serves to answer the many family tree related questions that I have fielded. If, in your research, you find substantially supported information concerning anyone mentioned on this page please forward it to email@example.com
Please enjoy the reading!
The line I am about to write out is drawn from One James Bennett (b.???? -1659) as directly as possible to one Ferris Bennett (1801 - 1890)
