Benton County Democrat

BENNETT, John H. - John H. Bennett was born in Pittsylvania county, Va. and died at his home in Mason Valley July 12, 1909, age 78 years, 4 months and 3 days. He was principally reared in Patrick county, Va. He was married to Martha A. Duke in South Carolina Nov. 12, 1857. There were born to them eight children, six of whom survive him. He had been in feeble health for years and came to the end of his long life with pleasure. He was converted and became a member of the Methodist church in 1882 and was later licensed to exhort. His life was an exemplary one and his death one of peace. He had been a Mason for 40 years. We can say of him, "a good man has fallen." His funeral was conducted at the Coffelt burying ground in connection with the funeral of his daughter-in-law (who was buried at the same time) by the writer and Brother Bearden, and his body was interred there. He leaves his lifelong companion and six children besides many other friends. May God bless them. H.A. Armstrong.
