548. Thomas Joseph BENNETT ( , John , Benjamin , Richard , Richard , Richard , Thomas , John , Thomas "of Clapcot" , John , Thomas , Thomas ) was born about 1802 in South Carolina. He died after 1830 in Missouri or Illinois???.


Our earliest known Bennett direct ancestor is Joseph Bennett, the father of Thomas William Bennett. Thomas Bennett was born sometime in the month of January 1820 in the State of Illinois and died around August 1900 in Water Valley, Randolph County, Arkansas. William may be his middle name. He was also possibly born in Jefferson County, Illinois. His wife was Nellie Bowen and they were most likely married in Missouri in about 1851 possibly in the vincity of Jefferson County, Missouri south of the St. Louis area. Joseph Bennett according to Randolph County, Arkansas Census records was born in South Carolina and is estimated to have been born before 1802 based on the year Thomas was born.

Research also suggest that Thomas Bennett may have been related to William Sorrow Bennett of Elevenpoint township, Randolph County, Arkansas. There are several reasons to believe this conclusion.

First, the close proximity the families lived indicated there may have been some relation. In the 1880 Federal Census for Elevenpoint township, Thomas' family is listed as house number 70, his eldest son George is listed for house number 71, Wilson Watley and family (Roxie Watley/James Bennett) is listed for house number 74, and William Sorrow and family is listed for house number 79. Jesse Prevett is at house number 69(later some of the Prevett lived close to Thomas' family and married some of the Bennett cousins). Jacob Hufstedler, 41, possibly a brother to Susan, 39, William's wife lived at house number 76. Daniel B. McMullen's family was located at house number 24 and his son, William McMullen, was located at house number 122. In addition, there are several Thompsons born in North Carolina associated with Bennetts living within the township. My guess is that these Thompsons were descendants of the Thompson branch of the Bennett family and were themselves Bennett descendants. William Thompson and family lived at house number 12, Samuel W. Thompson and family lived at house number 14 and Olin Thompson and family lived at house number 33. Henry Bennett lived at house number 36 and George Bennett and family lived at number 169. Daniel McIlroy who's family had ties to the Bennett families lived at Current River number 103. Hufstedlers were at this time still concentrated in Roanoke Township near Birdell where again William Bennett had lived a decade earlier. In fact, the Thompsons and McIlroys appear to have arrived many years before those related to Harrison Bennett arrived as they appear in the 1870, 1860 and 1850 Censuses in loosely scattered groups in Randolph County. There are also Tylers, Broadways and Lands who eventually married into my Hughes family.

Secondly, although Thomas Bennett and family was not present in the records before 1870, the McMullen family that was to intermarry with Thomas Bennett's family in later years, were already in Randolph County. In 1870, Daniel's family lived in Roanoke Township near Birdell where William's family was. True, Daniel lived several houses away from William, but both were living among the extended network of Bennett related families, namely Thompson, Adams, Hufstedler and McIlroy. Thus, it appears that an extension to one group of Bennetts were also an extension of the other through the McMullen family.

Third, members of William S. Bennett's family has lived in Ripley and St. Francois Counties, Missouri, Jefferson County, Illinois, Tennessee and South Carolina, while Thomas Bennett's has reportly lived in Ripley, Jefferson and Callaway Counties, Missouri and Jefferson County, Illinois, Tennessee and South Carolina. Thomas was apparently in Jefferson County, Missouri about the same time that Harrison, William Sorrow's father, arrived in neighboring St. Francois County. Recently I have discovered some of our Bennetts in Jefferson County, Missouri with the Toy family who have intermarried into the Bennett family on more than one occasion. The Isle of Wight County, Virginia Bennett (William S. Bennett families) during the 1700's scattered throughout Virginia, both Carolinas, Georgia and Tennessee. Joseph Bennett, Thomas' father, was likely born in or near South Carolina and came through Georgia, Tennessee and possibly Kentucky and/or Indiana on his way to Illinois. I'm beginning to suspect that Joseph Bennett was born in Georgia rather than South Carolina and his approximate date of birth reflects about the same time that the other Bennetts spread from Effingham County throughout Georgia and Effingham does share a large border with South Carolina.

Fourth, the given names Thomas, John, Joseph, William, Nellie, Henry, Walter, Charles, James, Hattie, George, Daniel, Arthur, Elizabeth, Theodore, Mary and Jane have appeared often in the Thomas William Bennett family and are very common to the William S. Bennett family which dates back to Thomas Bennett of England b. 1459. While it can be easily argued that these given names were common to most families in the 1800's, the total number - 18 - common to both Bennett families seems to imply more.

Fifth, most families who lived in the Janes Creek, Water Valley, Elevenpoint and Roanoke Township intermarried generally at some point especially if they lived for very long in the area. However, I have yet to find one single marriage between the Thomas William Bennett and William Sorrow Bennett family. Could this suggest that these family were close blood relations?

Sixth, both Thomas William Bennett and William Sorrow Bennett are believed to have served in the Confederate Army from Missouri and both family generally had strong sympathiest with the Southern Cause. It seems likely that both families had strong roots and origins in the Virginia, Carolina, Georgia region and very likey share common ancestry.

Seventh, both Thomas William Bennett and the Isle of Wight Bennetts had a tendency to have large immediate families with a large complex group of extended families. To a certain extent this has been an early American tradition among many families, but both of these Bennett families seem to have had a special knack for complex family relationship well into the twentieth century. Thomas William Bennett's family share a complex mix with the families of Western Randolph County especially in relation to Janes Creek, Water Valley, Elevenpoint and Roanoke Townships. There are highly complex links to McMullen, Mitchell, Compton, and Loney. There are further links to Watley, Harnden, Hughes, Davis, Decker, Blansett, Thompson and others I'm still trying to put together. The Isle of Wight is entertwained with many families, including Bell, Thompson, Smith, Magum, Edrington, Cook, McIlory and others. Each of these family with few expections had many children, often numbering as high as 9 or 10. Early in America, family had large amounts of children to protect against infant mortality and as medicine improved and infant mortality dropped so did family size. It just seems like the Bennetts in general continued this tradition later into modern times than may families did.

Eighth, there are several gaps in the Isle of Wight descendants. Most likely some of these lost family descendants travelled along with the known descendants and for some reason or the other these parts of the family failed to be recorded as is the case with may early American families. This was especially true with large families. Often certain children would leave the main family group attempting to secure enough land to ensure their fortunes. Farming was the predominate method of earning a living and large families required lots of land. It was the process that drove most Americans to spread across the North American continent.

While path of direct descendency between the Isle of Wight Bennetts and Thomas William Bennett is not yet clear, the number of similarities and coincidences compelling suggest that these two Bennett family group most likely descended from Thomas Bennett (1580). Much research remains to be done to complete the link between Thomas William Bennett (1820) and Thomas Bennett (1580).


Working from the belief that all Bennetts in early Randolph County descend from the same Bennett family, it is possible to offer some speculation on the ancestry of Joseph Bennett . Beginning with Thomas W. Bennett and his family lived among the Bennetts or Randolph County and that they followed the same general migration path to Tennessee, Illinois, Missouri and on to Randolph County, Arkansas, Joseph Bennett liekly descended from one of the Bennetts that migrated from Virginia to North Carolina to Georgia. There are two branches of Bennetts living in Georgia in the late 1700's. One was represented by Benjamin Bennett, son of James who was the son of Richard Bennett. Benjamin died about 1783 in Effingham so he probably wasn't the father of Joseph Bennett although Benjamin most likely had a son that could have been Joseph's father. Another possiblity was represented by the sons of Benjamin Bennett son of Richard Bennett II or Richard Bennett, Jr. who was the son of Richard Bennett. Of Benjamin and Sarah's seven sons, John died in Virginia; Benjamin, Franky and Charles may never left Virgina; Richard's children were well accounted for; James sons were too young to be Joseph's father which leaves William Bennett born about 1756. Records show one son, John Maclin Bennett born about 14 years (abt 1770) after his father, William Bennett. The record also shows that William and Mary Sheffield Bennett died in about 1840. Since William Bennett lived 84 years and his wife Mary life a similar time period it is highly likely that William and Mary had many more children.

The best I can figure is that Joseph Bennett at the earliest was born after 1775 or 45 years before Thomas William Bennett was born. I also figure that Joseph Bennet at the latest was born before 1802 or 18 years before Thomas was born. The ages 45 and 18 conforms to most cases in geanological records. Therefore, Joseph Bennett was born between 1775 and 1802. Taking this into account, Joseph Bennett was likely either a son or grandson of either Benjamin Bennett son of
James Bennett and grandson of Richard Bennett or Joseph was the son or grandson of William Bennett son of Benjamin Bennett and grandson of Richard Bennett (II) Jr. Since William's descendant are the one found in Tennesse, Illinois, Missouri and Arkansas, at this point I'm leaning toward William Bennett and Sarah as the parents of Joseph Bennett. This conclusion I realize is based on highly speculative conclusions, but from the information I have collected I am reasonably certain that Joseph Bennett is the descendant of Richard Bennett and Thomas Bennett who lived in the Isle of Wight County, Virginia during the 1600's.

All comments are welcome regarding the ancestry of Joseph Bennett. I am hoping that by posting selected portions of the Bennett Family History back to 1459, new information will come forward to finally settle the question of where Joseph Bennett and his descendants belong among the greater Bennett family.

Thomas married UNDERWOOD???. UNDERWOOD??? was born before 1804 in Tennessee. She died in Missouri ?.

They had the following children:

+ 849 M i Thomas William BENNETT was born in Jan 1820 and died before 1910.

551. Matilda HOLDER (Solomon Langston HOLDER , Mary LANGSTON , Sarah BENNETT , Richard , Richard , Richard , Thomas , John , Thomas "of Clapcot" , John , Thomas , Thomas ) was born on Feb 4 1804 in Laurens County, South Carolina. She died in Apr 1888 in Ballard County, Kentucky now Carisle Co.

Matilda HOLDER was the daughter of Solomon Langston and Matilda HOLDER. Matilda also had a sister Delilah who married William S. McClure. Their daughter Sarah C. McClure married Joseph Pickett, son of William P. Pickett and Matilda's grandson.

FOR A COMPLETE INFORMATION ON MATILDA HOLDER ANCESTRY PLEASE SEE BENNETT.
MATILDA HOLDER WAS A DESCENDANT OF LANGSTONS, MANGUM AND THOMAS BENNETT BORN IN A.D. 1459 IN ENGLAND.

Matilda married 3 William Gilliam PICKETT 1, 2, son of Henry PICKETT and Unknown, on Mar 11 1818 in Nashville, Tennessee. William was born on May 25 1795 in Tennessee or North Carolina ?. He died 4 on May 10 1845 in Ballard County, Kentucky now Carisle Co and was buried 5 in Ballard County, Kentucky now Carisle Co.

William Pickett reportedly was a veteran of the War of 1812. Matilda may have filed pension for his pension in later years. Evidence also suggest that William and Matilda spent a few years in the Saline County, Illinois area in the late 1820's and early 1830's.

The following notes were taken from Bill Pickett's Book of Genealogical Notes on our Pickett Family. Without his work this lengthy history of the Pickett Family of Lawrence, Sharp and Randolph counties in Arkansas would have not been possible.

The following article was taken from one of the historical journals of Carlisle County, Ky.

One of the early settlers of now Carlisle Co. was William Pickett.

Pickett had married one of the Matilda Holder girls back in Tennessee and was a brother-in-law of Joe McClure. Pickett bought a tract of land two miles west of where Bardwell now stands. He got possession of this 350 acre farm about 1826 and he and his boys cleared a field and built a house.

At this time there was no place for the settlers to congregate. Puntneys was too far to the west and hard to get to, because Back Slough had to be crossed and it was ten miles to Milburn, and, about the same distance to Columbus. So, the settlers decided to make Pickett's a metting place for the surrounding country side. Mr. Pickett had told them that he didn't have room at home as he had a large family, so they built a one room cabin on Truman Creek about one hundred yars from the Pickett house. this cabin was used for holding elections, for storing liquor when they had barbecues , and for the young people to have their dances and frolics in.

The elections at that early date lasted three days, and the park at the Pickett community house being full of big maple and oak trees was a fine place for parking and camping. Most of the settlers that had to come eight or ten miles, remained during the entire election period. There were foot races, wrestling matches, and at night, the usual dance, and there would be fist fights, the only kind of fights allowed. Richard Harper won all the honors for being the swiftest runner, and, John Price for being the best bear hug wrestler.

Picketts was the voting place of all the men in what is now the northern half of Carlise Couty, and in 1870 there were 1500 people in the Picketts' precinct, but when Bardwell started to build in 1875 and the polling place was placed there, Pickett's precinct became a thing of the past. The community house is gone, the Pickett house is gone, the big trees have all been cut down and there is a tenant house belonging to J.W.Turk there today. S.M. Hicks owns the old Pickett farm and nearly all of the Pickett family have disappeared.

Note: The graves of William and Matilda Pickett are located in a pasture a few miles from Bardwell, Ky. They are marked by one tall concrete spire that serves as head stone for both. A snap shot taken in 1981 by Mrs. Coleta (Pickett) Cox of he brother Lawrence Pickett and their cousin Herbert Pickett standing by the tomb show the names to be still clearly visible.
