RE: Belknap and Ferner
Let's hope I can keep this straight! First, I do not have a birth name for Mary Belknap of Ireland, wife of Sanford. Second, Margaret Turner (that is correctly her birth name)was the daughter of Robert Turner and his wife Mary (sorry, don't have a birth name for her either). She, her parents and four other siblings that I know of were all born Ireland. The Turner burial plot is Range 4, SE 1/4 of Lot 126. Most if not all of the family are on Find a Grave. Third: I will go ahead and set up a memorial for Robert Ferner Lawrence in a day or so. Did I miss anything? Jane

Belknap and Ferner
Hi Jay, Laura Louise Ferner and my father, Charles Bertram Ferner were 2nd cousins. His maternal grandmother was Elisabetha Maria Fackler who was the sister of and Laura Louise's maternal grandmother, Barbara Fackler.

Robert Ferner Belknap (1910-1998) was the son of Robert Belknap (1878-1944) and Laura Louise Ferner. Robert Belknap's father was William S. Belknap (1834-1897) and his wife, Margaret Turner (1838-1915). William S. Belknap was the son of Sanford Belknap of Vermont (1800-1850) and his wife Mary (mnu) born Ireland (1799-1889). Please feel free to contact me via email with any further questions. I appreciate the offer to transfer Laura to me but I think since you have so many Belknaps you will serve her well. Note: unable to find a memorial for Robert Ferner Belknap who died 1998 and is buried in White Haven Memorial Park. He was married twice and had a couple of children, but you probably know this. I do have some dates but not a lot of information. Regards, Jane

RE: Benjamin Franklin Bennett
Great compilation of bio info on BFB!

He is listed with the Co I 15th NJ

You might drop Dave, of the SUVCW, a line about replacing the headstone. I think they have one member who is in charge of such errors.

Hi, I found Ward and Jeanette for you. Records show that Caroline is somewhere with them but I didn't find a headstone, Ward and Jeanette were married. Their dates are on the stones. If I find any others I'll post them and let you know.

My resources are: The US, Sons of the American Revolution Membership applications, 1889-1970.
This lists Hannah Cooper as being the wife of Garret Dubis.

RE: Bennet photo.

Sarah now has a copy per your request. And yes, I am the author on the tour of Laurel Grove Cem, thanks! (Me and the Evening Gazette I should say)

Always interested in well sourced material, genealogical mysteries, interesting transcriptions, poking holes in local legends, etc for the blog. If you have any ideas drop me a line:

Best, Jane
