Subject: Bennett Genealogy: Jerusha Bennett


A couple of weeks ago I was able to roll a genealogy expedition into a business trip – I spent two days in Bath, Steuben County, New York. While there, I found Jacob Bennett’s will abstract in the Steuben County Historian’s office. My transcribed version is given below. I believe this document answers the question of Jerusha Bennett-Sabin’s parentage. And now, if we can only eradicate the "Gerutia" misspelling that seems to proliferate in every corner of the Internet. It’s as though they are unacquainted with Jerusha’s grandmother or the Bible’s Jerusha -- wife of Uzziah, and mother of King Jotham (2 Kings 15:33) -- for whom the elder Jerusha was undoubtedly named.

I hope you find this information useful.
