Rodhie Ellen (Bryant) (Smith)(Hamilton) Bennett was the daughter of Thomas Howard Bryant (1843-1914) and Martha Jane (Bryce) Bryant (1848-1920). She was one of six known children raised in Crawford Co., Arkansas. Rodhie had the following known siblings:

In 1899, in Arkansas, Rodhie married Amos Bennett (born in 1834) who was 39 years older than her. Amos had at least one previous marriage, and family members believe he may have been married twice before. He had 6 known children, all of whom were grown by the time he married Rodhie.

All of these children died young, except Leonard, the youngest, who lived to be 90 years old. He is also buried in Hall Cemetery.
