Notes for Jerusha Bennett Sabin

The Familes of Jacob Bennett

Conflicting evidence as to whether this Jerusha is a child of Abraham & Jerusha (Wanzer) Bennett or their oldest son Jacob & Julia (Benjamin) Bennett. She is listed as a daughter in Jacob's will in 1851, and William Sabin is listed as a son-in-law in the same will.

> Hello, my name is Lynn Sabin. I am a 3rd great-granddaughter of Jerusha Bennett & William C. Sabin.
> For several months, I've been engaged in a focused study of the parents of William C. Sabin. Like Jerusha Bennett, there is much confusion and misinformation concerning William's parents. I believe I've finally laid this to rest by providing a detailed census study, probate, and other records proving his parents were Josiah & Lydia (Cady) Sabin. (See my website at, and then select the Database tab.)
> I am now turning my attention to Jerusha Bennett. For this reason, I would enjoy corresponding with you. I've been through your online materials carefully and, following my own census study and search for documentation, find your conclusions sound.
> Concerning the mystery of the two Jerusha Bennett's (supposed daughters of Abraham & Jerusha and Jacob and Julia), I posit the following:
> Abraham Bennett, Sr., died in Warwick, NY, about 1795, leaving widow Jerusha with many children, which were enumerated in 1800. By 1810, one or more of these children went to live with Jacob, making it easier for mother Jerusha to subsist. Were daughter Jerusha among those living with Jacob, this would certainly account for much of the confusion. I seriously doubt Jacob was Jerusha's father. Moreover, on the 1820 census for Howard, NY, we find Jerusha & William C. Sabin living almost next-door to Jerusha [Wanzer] Bennett.
> A name comparison among the children of the families of Abraham & Jerusha Bennett, Jacob & Julia Bennett, and William C. & Jerusha Sabin is inconclusive, as we find names from the two Bennett families among those of the Sabin children. We also find names, such as Rhoda, appearing among Sabin grandchildren. However, if Jerusha were raised by Jacob & Julia, this is not surprising.
> I respect the quality of your research and would enjoy hearing your thoughts.
> Lynn Sabin

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.
