- Hi Diana, my name is Wm Jay Mumaw, and I've traced my Virginia/West Virginia Bennett roots back to Argyle, Washington Co, Ny and also Rhode Island. My ggggg Grandfather William Bennett was born in Rhode Island abt 1845 and moved to Argyle, NY before the Revolutionary war. After the war he stayed in NY until sometime early 1800's. We found where he bought land in Ohio Co, Virginia in 1808. Some of his family are still there and some moved away up toward Hancock Co, WV, in the 1890's due to the Pottery industry boom of that time.
If you'd like you can email me direct at jayy704@...
Sincerely, Jay Mumaw son of Shirley Bennett Mumaw
grandson of Robert
ggrandson of Joseph
gggrandson of David
ggggrandson of Zachariah
gggggrandson of Nfn Bennett
ggggggrandson of William Bennett
