Bennett; Bennit USA

Classification: Query
Surnames: Bennett; Bennit; Nostrand (?spelling)
For a few years now I have been trying to find information for my brother-in-law on his BENNETT branch.

We can't solve the Samuel 'Smith' Bennit/Bennett beginnings. His marriage certificate and the death certificate of his son, Stephen, both state he was born USA. However, regardless of searching all the various census form in the USA and Australia (immigration) we have not had any luck at all in tracing this branch within the USA. Any help or advice is welcome.
Below find information on three (3) of the family.
