Bennett and Lucinda Reffett Lake, and James Polk Lake

Surnames: Lake, Reffett, Reffit
I am a decendant of Bennett and Lucinda Reffett Lake's daughter, Elizabeth Lake and her husband James Polk Lake. I know all of these people settled in Illinois but not where they came from. I know where James Polk Lake, Susannah wife of Joseph Reffit, another Susanna Reffit, a James Lake, and a Greenberry Lake are buried. I don't have any information on Bennett and Lucinda's parents. I also don't have any information on who James's parents were or where they were from. I do know that James had a brother Daniel, I've found him, and I think they had a sister, Sarah Lake and a brother William Lake. Can anyone help me?

Yes, I think it is. I had thought Bennett was born in Kentucky. Thank you this will give me somewhere to start cause I don't know where he and Lucinda are buried.

There is someone on Ancestry that has done some research on this couple. They have Bennetts death place as Jewett, Cumberland, Il but no date of death. Lucinda's death as about 1904 in Jasper Co. Illinois. Marriage date 22 Jan 1846 in Jasper Co. Hope that helps.
