Bennet7 TRELOAR (James6, Bennet5, Thomas4, John3, Wearne2, John1 Werne TRELOWARTH) a farmer and yeoman, son of James TRELOAR and Mary JENKIN, was baptised Wendron, 10 June 1781 and was church officer in Baptist Church, Helston. He was at the home of his daughter Betsy in census 1851, Sithney, Cornwall, England and gave age as 69. His wife and children haven't been located in 1851 census but the census 1841 of Kehelland, Camborne parish, finds him and part of his family. Bennet, wife and some of his children came to U.S. A. in 1851. Several of his sons preceded him to Linden, Wisconsin where he died about July 1853. He married Ann TREMAINE 23 July 1810, Wendron. She was baptized 22 March 1789, Constantine, Cornwall, England; her parents William Tremaine and Elizabeth James of Constantine were married there 16 April 1781. She was a very neat and properly dressed old lady. Following her husband's death she lived with her youngest daughter, Emily Temby, and died at her home in 1872, Ogden, Iowa. She is interred at Glenwood Cemetery, Ogden, Iowa; monumental inscription gives age as 89 but this is incorrect as she gave age as 82 in census of 1870 two years before death and 71 in census of 1860. Of the six sons of Bennet and Ann who lived to manhood, five came to Iowa Co., Wisconsin. Most of them married there and started rearing their families, sons Bennet and William died in Wisconsin. Then came the scattering years, Joseph moved to Boone Co., Iowa; John to Emmetsburg, Iowa and Minnesota; James Tremaine to Henry Co., Iowa and Missouri. By 1890 the three families had lost contact. After a lapse of sixty years we have been able to largely reconstruct the families and bring their genealogy up to date. Henry, the son who stayed in Cornwall, has a large progeny.
