RE: John Steven Benezet
My apologies on reading the age incorrectly. I am just trying to identify the burial site of John Stephen Benezet. I am also a descendant of John Stephen Benezet and Maria Habacker. Our John Stephen Benezet is the son of Anthony Benezet and Anna Maria Graff. Anthony Benezet, son of Daniel Benezet and Elizabeth North. The reason I was asking is there was no wife listed on the headstone, so I was trying to determine how you ascertained the additional family members. I appreciate any information you can provide so I can narrow down the search. I believe my email is on my profile, so if you would like to discuss off the forum that would be fine. Again, thank you for your assistance.

John Steven Benezet
Tom, I have to wonder is this John Steven Benezet is not my 4th great grandfather. The headstone states he died in 1869 at the age of 91. That would make his date of birth as 1778, which is consistent with all known information on John Steven Benezet that I have. Additionally, our John Steven Benezet married Maria Habacker. There is much documentation of the marriage. Our John Steven Benezet is the son of Anthony Benezet and Anna Maria Catharina Graff. Please let me know your thoughts on the matter. Thank you for your assistance in my search.

RE: Powl
Thanks for the roses. I grew up in Lancaster County but my parents transplanted me to Berks County 47 years ago and I'm still there. However, all my ancestors are in Lancaster County so most of my genealogical work is there.
Do you get the Pennsylvania Mennonite Heritage magazine published by the Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society? I've had some articles published in that and will have another one in the July issue which is due to arrive soon.

Thanks for all the Powl corrections. There is a church like that next to my house with an old and new cemetery. People are constantly getting them confused. Now I did it too.
