Re: [bennettzone] Re: Looking for my Bennett "cousins"
- Sorry, but your Andrew C. Bennett was born too early to be part of the pottery brothers family. The brothers didn't come over to The U.S. until the 1830's. Carnegie didn't come over from Scotland until 30 years later.

It would be so interesting to find out if this is the missing piece we have looked for, for so long. Would you look over what we have and see if any of these other names are found in your letters?
I would love for you to look over what I have as I have a Andrew C Bennett in my family tree. Born 1797 SC have him dying in Ala (possiably at age 13.) But my Andrew C is the child of John and Mary.
