According to the William Adriaense Bennet: Descendants and related families book, there are several Cornelius Bennets. I will look up yours but I need more specifics on when he was born and/or who he married.

So far I only have found him in the 1880 and 1910 brooklyn census (26th ward).
In 1880:
Bennett, Cornelius-43 (makes birth abt 1837)-ship chaulker
Mary-40-birth Ny
Mary A.-20-dress maker
Cornelia-19-flower maker
Ezra D.-17-brass moulder
Corn. Jr-16-confined 12 yrs. w/ Fistula
Asa D.-14-works in factory
Sarah-8
Annie-3-(my grandmother who married Bernard Leinfelder in 1899 in Brooklyn then moved to Bridgepoet Ct after 1920).

In 1910:
Leinfelder, Annie-32-widow (my grampa died young)
Bernard-11
Viola-3
Bennett, Cornelius-72-widow-works as a tool kepper in the Navy Yard.

It says he was born in NY along with both of his parnets.Anything would help. Thank-you.

There were two Cornelis/Cornelius Bennet/Bennett people born around 1837 in the book I have. Neither seemed to marry a Mary. Cornelius Bennet(t) is a pretty common name in this book, though. There were 42 references to variations of this name. If/when you determine Cornelius' parents, let me know and I'll try looking them up.

I am looking for Brooklyn Bennetts too.

Lydia Bennett born bef 1875 married to Ralph Sloane.
They had a bath house on the beach called Sloanes. Can't find it!

Frank Bennett born bef 1875 married to Ruth or Dorthy (one of these names are the daughter and one the wife)

Thomas Bennett (not sure on him)

James Garfield Bennett born about 1884 in Brooklyn married to Delia McAvoy abt 1908
They had five children.
James died about 1925 of black lung in Astoria, New York
I have information on James family but not on any others.
I have had no luck finding any thing on this family or parents.
Thanks
Deby

Surnames: Bennett, Kyser
My great-great grandmother was Matilda Bennett she married a George Kyser. In my family's gravesite is a Joseph A. Bennett dob circa 1796, buried at Evergreens Cemetery Brooklyn, 12/07/1854. My guess is this is Matilda Bennett-Kyser's father. There is also a John F. Bennett born circa 1845, buried 2/2/1883. Are any of these names in your book?
