I'm looking for any information regarding the parents of a Major Bennett, born in Guilford, NC October 1819, married Catherine Malinda Hagee and died April 1889. I'm specifically in search of his parents (possible bastard child?). He and Catherine moved to Indiana and raised several sons in the Tipton, Howard County areas.

I am also stuck on Major Bennett. I'm a direct descendant of his but I'm stuck and cannot locate his parents. Let me know if you find anything.

From which son are you decended? Do you know anything about the Bennett Museum near Raleigh, NC?

I'm from the John Nathaniel branch. I've only been able to locate that Major's parents were born in North Carolina. It took me a long time to verify that "Major" was actually his given name. I was able to locate a picture of his gravesite, so I feel pretty certain it is.

I know there was a previous post, from quite a while ago, that was also looking for information on Major. I don't think it ever got any responses.

I have not heard of the Bennett Museum, but I'll go take a look and see if I can find anything.

I'm actually in Kokomo (where Major (or Magor) and Catherine are buried). I know there lived in the Guilford, NC area. But, the records are so jumbled down there due to the counties/towns etc changing so frequently. So, they might have actually lived near Guilford. Not clear. Any suggestion? I'm thinking about doing the DNA test, but don't know if it'd be worth it.

I'm in Indianapolis. Small world. My immediate family is from Kokomo.

I think Major moved from NC to the Kokomo/Tipton area with Catherine and 4 or 5 sons. My grandfather had five sons and a daughter.

Surnames: Bennett Milton
I'm researching Charles Milton who claimed he was born Sep. 6, 1864, 5 miles north of Kokomo in Indiana to Henry Milton and Nancy Bennett. But I can't find anything to support his claim.

Does Nancy Bennett fit into any of your trees?

I have a Nancy Elizabeth Bennett born in 1840 in North Carolina and dying in 1905 in Kansas. I have her married to a Thomas Adams but maybe there was a 2nd marriage?
