Would you have any information on one George Bennett who presumably started life as William Asa Porter, son of Leander Porter and Sophia Loveless/lace? There is a story that he changed his name to Bennett. I have been unable to find him under either name. His birth date probably is June 2, 1879.

H Patricia,
I have the George Bennett you mentioned b. 02 Jun 1879 Arlington, Kings, Nova Scotia as the s/o John Thomas Bennett b. 21 Dec 1829 Cornwallis and Zerviah Knowlton b. 25 Nov 1831. George married 01 Nov 1904 Clara Maud Messom.
(Marriage source: Nova Scotia Historical Vital Statistics. Registration Year: 1904 - Book: 1827 - Page: 87 - Number: 90). The marriage record gives his parents as John and Zerviah. I have no indication that he changed his name, but one never knows. I hope this is of some help.

Do you happen to be related to Clara Evelyn Bennett, who married Stanley Courtney Crouse, 21 Jan 1929.

She was the daughter of Annie Belle Pineo and James Morton Bennett.

Annie Belle (my Great Grandmother) was a direct NOW PROVEN Mayflower descendant of John Alden, William Mullins, Henry Samson and Myles Standish.

She was also, NOW PROVEN, direct descendant of Jacques Pineo a french Huguenot.
Would love to talk about this. Contact me at

Thanks, Gary

Thank you so much for this information on William Porter aka George Bennett. I find it just too synchronistic that the birth date of June 2, 1879 is the same for both names and am inclined to believe they are one and the same person.

You can contact me at
Thanks again.

Where do you fit into the 'picture'?

Surnames: Bennett Dickie Parker Wetherby
I'm curious about the Nathan Dickie shown as marrying Angelina Bennett. Is this the Nathan Dickie b. 1832, son of Robert Dickie and Eleanor Scott Parker? Robert Dickie was born about 1800 and was the son of David "Yankee David" Dickie and Ruth Weatherby.
