I'm researching Charles Bennett and, in addition to seeking any information on this family, I am particularly interested in determining if there is a connection between Charles Bennett and Thaddeus Bennett and his son, Joseph Bennett, who arrived in Madison Township, Scioto Co., OH about 1814.
Information I have indicates that Charles Bennett, (b. abt. 1731; d. March 1818 in Madison Township) and his wife, Martha Collins (b. abt 1732; d. July 2, 1815 in Madison Township) were married September 11, 1753 in Baltimore, MD. They lived in the Berkeley Springs area of what is now WV and in Monongalia Co., VA (now WV) before coming to Scioto Co.
The children I have for them are as follows:
1. Priscilla Bennett (b. 1755) m. Abraham Carter.
2. Anne Bennett (b. 1756)
3. Catherine Bennett (b. 1758)
4. Robert Bennett (b. abt. 1759)
5. Nancy Bennett (b. abt 1760)
6. Jemima Bennett (b. abt. 1762) m. 1st Leonard Southworth; m. 2nd Joseph Jacobs
7. Charles Bennett, Jr. (b. abt. 1764)
8. John Thomas Bennett (b. 1766)
9. Caleb Bennett (b. 1768)
10. Thomas? Bennett (b. abt 1770)
I'd appreciate hearing from anyone with information on this family. I have info to share on a few of Charles Bennett's descendants especially on his great granddaughter, Mary Bennett who married William Mollsee (Mollisee, Mallasee).

Thaddeus Bennett of Scioto had a nephew Charles (by his brother Ephraim), but this Charles migrated from NY to IL in 1849 and then to MO. Thaddeus' line came from Chemung Co. NY and Ridgefield CT. I doubt he was closely related to anyone from Baltimore.

My http://users.adelphia.net/~graveslane/bennetts.htm shows Rachel Mead marrying Ephraim (Bennett), with a note that this Ephraim was adopted by Joseph Bennett when he married the mother Elizabeth Mills. Joseph was the 7th child of Thaddeus Bennett and Eunice Bentley. Sorry I don't have the provenance of that. I found it on the Internet.

I'm looking for information on Thaddeus, b. 1760 in Warwick NY or Warwick RI, d. 1834 in Scioto Co., OH.

1) Does anyone know if married an Elizabeth Mead(e)? I am descended from Catherine Bennett b. abt 1806 in NY, m. John D Torbett. Any searches for her say that she was the dau. of this Thaddeus and Elizabeth Mead(e). The also names one of her sons Thaddeus Bennett Torbett.

2) I have seen a few sources which say that he was actually the son of Sam. Bennett III, not his grandson and son of Ephriam. Can anybody refute or confirm this?

Have you checked sources in Allegany and Steuben counties in New York? Its been a while since I've researched the Bennetts in that area, but if I remember right, there are alos records referring to him in the Wellsburg Baptist church records on Joyce Tice's website.
