Bennett Life Sketch

Contributor: Larry Bulloch Created: 2 months ago Updated: 2 months ago

John Bennett was born on the 14th of June 1839 in Ince in Makerfield, Lancashire, England. The second son and third child of William and Elizabeth. In 1851 he lived on Broom Street in Ince in Makerfield with his father William, mother Elizabeth and his siblings James, Catherine, William, Richard and Thomas. He was a scholar. In 1861 he lived in the same street with his parents William and Elizabeth, and siblings Catherine, Richard, Thomas, Matthew, Henry, David and Ellen. John was a coal miner. I believe that John joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints sometime before his marriage. One record shows that he was confirmed on the 1st of Jan 1856 at 16 years old, but I do not have firm proof of this. On the 21st of May 1861 John married Sarah Glover who was also a member of the church, (She had been baptised when she was ten years old) In 1868 their daughter Maria who was only 8 months old sadly passed away. In 1871 John and Sarah lived at 8 Primrose Hill in Scholes, Wigan, Lancashire, England. He was a breaksman and Sarah was a Reeler in factory. They had three children, Louisa, Ann and John living with them. By 1881 the family had moved to 94 Albert Street, Pemberton, Lancashire, England. John was now working as a Railway breaksman and Sarah was a Cotton mill mulekeeper. They had their 6 children with them. Louisa, Ann, John, Ruth, Elizabeth and Moses. In 1890 John Bennett and his daughter Ruth, travelled to Liverpool where they boarded the Ship SS Wisconsin as 'Steerage Passengers' heading to New York. John recorded his occupation as a labourer. They arrived in New York on the 10th of July 1890. Sarah and the rest of the children stayed behind and in the 1891 census she was still living in Pemberton with her children Elizabeth, Moses and James. It must have been difficult being separated from each other. In the same year, 1891, Sarah travelled with her three children Elizabeth, Moses and James to Liverpool and boarded the same Ship S.S Wisconsin as 'Steerage Passengers' heading to New York. They arrived in August 1891. In 1900 John lived in Johnson, Kane Utah with Sarah and their children Elizabeth Moses and James In 1910 John lived in Johnson, Kane Utah with Sarah and their son James In 1920 John lived in Alton, Kane Utah with Sarah and their son James On the 22 of September 1922 John and Sarah went to the Manti Utah Temple where they were endowed and sealed to each other. John was 83 years old, and Sarah 80 years old. 7 Years later on the 9th of November 1927 John passed away at Alton, Kane Utah at the age of 88. Sarah Passed way on the 28th of August 1928 at the age of 86.

Life timeline of James Bennett

James Bennett was born in 1885
James Bennett was 9 years old when Mahatma Gandhi forms the Natal Indian Congress (NIC) in order to fight discrimination against Indian traders in Natal. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was an Indian activist who was the leader of the Indian independence movement against British rule. Employing nonviolent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. The honorific Mahātmā – applied to him first in 1914 in South Africa – is now used worldwide. In India, he is also called Bapu and Gandhi ji, and known as the Father of the Nation.
James Bennett was 18 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.
James Bennett was 29 years old when Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg, were assassinated by a Yugoslav nationalist named Gavrilo Princip in Sarajevo, sparking the outbreak of World War I. Archduke Franz Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria-Este was a member of the imperial Habsburg dynasty, and from 1896 until his death the heir presumptive (Thronfolger) to the Austro-Hungarian throne. His assassination in Sarajevo precipitated Austria-Hungary's declaration of war against Serbia, which in turn triggered a series of events that resulted in Austria-Hungary's allies and Serbia's declaring war on each other, starting World War I.
James Bennett was 44 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.
James Bennett was 45 years old when Great Depression: In a State of the Union message, U.S. President Herbert Hoover proposes a $150 million (equivalent to $2,197,000,000 in 2017) public works program to help generate jobs and stimulate the economy. The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline.
James Bennett was 55 years old when The Holocaust: The first prisoners arrive at a new concentration camp at Auschwitz. The Holocaust, also referred to as the Shoah, was a genocide during World War II in which Nazi Germany, aided by its collaborators, systematically murdered some six million European Jews, around two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe, between 1941 and 1945. Jews were targeted for extermination as part of a larger event involving the persecution and murder of other groups, including in particular the Roma and "incurably sick", as well as ethnic Poles and other Slavs, Soviet citizens, Soviet prisoners of war, political opponents, gay men and Jehovah's Witnesses, resulting in up to 17 million deaths overall.
James Bennett died in 1952 at the age of 67
