The Ancestral Lines of Chester Everts Howell, by Jessie Howell Finch, RD#1, Trumansburg, NY, US
Before the Rev War, Abraham Bennett (Sr) Sold his land in Ridgefield, Fairfield Co, CT & took his family aCross the Hudson River. By 1775 he & his son Abraham, were living in the town of Warwick, Orange Co NY after temporary temporary locations in NJ and in the part of northern Penns to which the Colony of Connecticut then laid claim. Assessment & Militia rolls of Warwick show listed together the names of Abraham & Abraham Jr. As late as 1777 Abraham Sr rece'd pay for militia service & he was probably alive in 1784 when Abraham Jr. signed a receipt using Jr after his Name.

Abraham Bennett Jr. and Jerusha Wanzer were married in 1770 in Warwick, Orange, New York. Jerusha Wanzer1 was born in 1750 in Fredricktown, , New York.2 She died on 10 Oct 1839 in Big Flats, Chemung, New York.2 The story of the early Bennetts in Chemung County, NY is that of how the widow
Jerusha solved her problems. About 1800 she came to what was then Tioga County, now Chemung. As her sons became ready for their own homes, deeds indicate she set them up on farms, doubtless having a home with each one for a time. The youngest, Daniel, had his land in Howard, Steuben, NY & it was there that Jerusha in 1820 signed seemingly her las deed. This location in Howard was called Bennett's Flats. The other sons were successful farmers in Chemung & Steuben Counties. One son, Comfort Bennett, was described in the County History as athe largest land owner within the range of five counties.
