Bennett Hotel/Boarding House?

Classification: Query
Hello,

I am seekinng any advertisements, articles, information or pictures on the Bennett Hotel/Boarding House of Redfield.

Orville & Mary A (Welker) Bennett owned a boarding house/Hotel - after Orville's death Mary A Bennett stayed and ran the establishment and raised her children.

Children:
Nellie Bennett (Williams)
born: April 25, 1896 in South Dakota
died: December 25, 1956 in Livingston, MT

Olive Claire Bennett (Never married)
born: August 14, 1897 in South Dakota
died: November, 1990 in Minneapolis, Minnesota  Buried at Greenlawn Cemetery on November 16, 1990 

Flora Eloise Bennett (Rabuck)
born: December 13, 1903 in South Dakota
died: August, 1990  Buried at Greenlawn Cemetery on August 23, 1990 

Orville W Bennett
born: 1908 in South Dakota
died: 

We are still searching for record of Orville W - Last record we have was 1956 (Nellie's Obit lists him in NJ)

Additionally,
In the June 30th, 1900 Federal census, Vern was listed as residing with his Uncle Orville and Aunt Mary (Welker) Bennett's hotel/boarding house, working as an office boy. They had 10 boarders at the time.

Verne was the son of Mary's brother William & ???? Welker.
Verne appears to have moved to Santa Cruz, California where he died in 1968.

Verne Welker
born: June 16, 1885
died: July 1968

The Hotel still existed as of 1930 according to census.
