I am looking for any information about a first marriage for George Elias Bennett.
George was born 21 January 1873, in Finchford, Black Hawk, Iowa, United States. I found him on the 1900 Iowa Soundex. It appears that his first wife was named [Maud L], born June 1870, in Iowa. Her maiden name may have been [Gardner].
There's an IA marriage record for George BENNETT, age 22, to Maude L. GARDNER, age 23, on 30 Nov-1893 in Perkins, Sioux Co, IA. Groom's parents were Jason BENNETT and Nettie SANDS. Bride's parents were D.O. GARDNER and Martha MILLER.
As you probably saw in the 1900 census, Martha GARDNER, mother-in-law, is listed in George and Maud's household.
The 1880 census for Lincoln, Sioux Co, IA has a Daniel GARDNER and wife Martha, but their 10 yr old daughter is listed as Alice, not Maud. This Martha is the right age to be the Martha listed with George and Maud in 1900. Both Martha's were born in OH with father's born in PA. Also, in 1900 Maud states her father was born in NY and this Daniel GARDNER was born in NY.
There's an IA death record for Daniel O. GARDNER b. 1833 in Genesee Co, NY, d. 23-June-1898 in Perkins, Sioux, IA.
Daniel appears to have served in the 24th Iowa Infantry. He filed for a pension as an invalid in June 1880. Martha filed as his widow in Aug 1898.
I appreciate the information. I have some great uncle's who just passed away, who had been looking for information about their dad for many years. My mom and her 3 sisters are still living. I will be sharing what I find with them.
My great grandmother was married to an English man named George Bennett born in 1837. They were married on Feb 22 1865 in Soda Springs Idaho and devorced a few years later. I have no record of what happened to this man and would love to have some answers. I don' t know anything about his history but know he was born in England and I don't think he returned. Thanks
