Bennett Life Sketch

Contributor: kdbulloch Created: 3 months ago Updated: 3 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.

About Aunt Sarah and Uncle John Bennett (Louisa’s parents - Sarah and James‘ father are siblings), yes they are still alive and live in Johnson, Kane Co. Utah. Uncle John still is a great worker, although he is 73 and Aunt Sarah is 71 or 72. They have a small farm and support themselves from their farm. They have one boy at home with them. He is a good son and will see to their welfare. They do not have much to do with religion, although they are still members of the Church. I do not live in Johnson. I live in a place called Alton, 30 miles north of Johnson. We go down to visit with them once or twice a year. It would do Aunt Sarah lots of good if you could write her a letter. We get a letter from them about every two weeks, so we keep in touch with them and know how they are getting along.

Life timeline of Sarah G Bennett

Sarah G Bennett was born in 1841
Sarah G Bennett was 18 years old when Charles Darwin publishes On the Origin of Species. Charles Robert Darwin, was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors and, in a joint publication with Alfred Russel Wallace, introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.
Sarah G Bennett was 19 years old when Abraham Lincoln is elected as the 16th President of United States. Abraham Lincoln was an American statesman and lawyer who served as the 16th President of the United States from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States through the American Civil War—its bloodiest war and perhaps its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis. In doing so, he preserved the Union, abolished slavery, strengthened the federal government, and modernized the economy.
Sarah G Bennett was 36 years old when Thomas Edison announces his invention of the phonograph, a machine that can record and play sound. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
Sarah G Bennett was 40 years old when The world's first international telephone call is made between St. Stephen, New Brunswick, Canada, and Calais, Maine, United States. A telephone call is a connection over a telephone network between the called party and the calling party.
Sarah G Bennett was 53 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.
Sarah G Bennett was 62 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.
Sarah G Bennett was 73 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.
