Thanks for the pointers to Dodson data and the Pittsylvania County VA Bennett book. I have not tried to track descendants of my ancestors' siblings very far, so I will pass at least for the time being on your offer of Louisiana Bennett data. I would like to know how your Jesse fits in, or in other words. why he is not in W.C.'s Will. However, I will always be interested in anything you find about our common ancestors, and will share my findings with you. For example, there is good documentation of our William Columbus's Revolutionary War service in VA artillery and the Va (!) navy boat Liberty, one of the most active American vessels in the Chesapeake throughout the War.
