Surnames: Bennett, Booth, Ford
See Donald Lines Jacobus's Families of Old Fairfield page 72. Eunice who married Lt. Daniel Booth is the daughter of Capt. Thomas Bennett and Mary Booth.
Capt. Thomas is the grandfather of Thomas who married Molly Ford. (Capt. Thomas1, Ephraim2, Thomas3), so they are connected. Eunice would be Thomas's aunt.

I am looking for info on Hiriam Bennet(t) born 1792-93 in connecticut and moved to Sullivan County in NY. Do you have any info on Hiriam? Angie

Capt. Thomas had three sons, Abraham, Thomas, Ephraim. In my research of Abraham's family, I did not come across anyone named Hiriam Bennett. For Abraham's family, you can see my three part article in Connecticut Ancestry titled "Descendents of Abraham Bennett and his wife, Christian Botsford, of Newtown, Conn." It is in the May, August and upcoming November 2012 issues.
Sorry I can't be of more help!

Hello, I was wondering if anyone could help me. My great grandfather was Albert Fletcher Bennett of Michigan. I could not find anything on his father or grand father until last night when I decided to look again. Well It took me to the Bennetts of Newtown Ct. I was wondering if any of you will know why they left CT and came to Michigan. Plus if what I found is true. Thank you for taking your time on reading this. And thank you for any help.
