    Notes:

    (This is a story present on the internet which requires modification; "When their children were all very young, Catherine died, and Sanford went into the Civil War. He returned from the war in 1863 with a severe case of the measles, from which he soon died. The children were taken into homes of relatives and friends to be raised. Melissa was taken into the home of Carr Apple, a friend of the family, where she grew to womanhood - and married Carr's son, Lon Apple; Beckie was raised by her uncle James Bennett."

    The modifications are: Catherine is listed as the Widow of Sanford; she died young but after Sanford had died; the other modification is it is highly unlikely that Sanford returned home with an acute case of measles; he was hospitalized at Mound City, IL Military Hospital and died there on January 20, 1863. This is his "muster out" date and he is buried on this date at the Mound City National Cemetery Pulaski Co., IL. Ron Yates 11/18/2009)

    Harrison Bennett was Catherine "Kitty" Grimes' first husband. He died in 1858. He is my wife's great-great-grandfather. John Clark Wellman was her 2nd husband. He died in 1876. Catherine died in 1910.

    The interesting information is that I believe Harrison and Clark were first cousins, sharing maternal grandparents. If this is true, then my wife is not only blood related to Catherine & Harrison, but Clark as well. Clark's Father and Mother were Joseph Wellman and Sarah Pittman. Harrison's Father and Mother were William M. Bennett and Rebecca Pittman. Rebecca and Sarah Pittman were sisters, daughters of James Pittman and Rachel McGrew; to complicate things further, Ruth McGrew, Rachel McGrew's sister, was also William M. Bennett's first wife. After her death, William married her niece, Rebecca.

    William married Rebecca Pittman on 6 Nov 1817 in Harrison, Kentucky. Rebecca (daughter of James Pittman and Rachael McGrew) was born about 1796 in Kentucky; died in 1870 in Orange, Indiana; was buried in Providence Cemetery, Orange, Indiana. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    James Yates b.1796 was part of the general migration of the Yates family from Kentucky to Crawford County in the early 19th century. We have records that indicate that James married Mary Ann Butler b.1792. Mary was a widow who had previously married William Irvin when they resided in Barren County, Kentucky. James and Mary were married January 7, 1819 in Crawford County, Indiana. Our best judgment at this writing is that James and Marry produced six children: John b.1825, Silas b.1827, Elias b.1829, Catherine b.1834, Benjamin b1837 and George b.1840.

    James married Mary Ann Butler on 7 Jan 1819 in Crawford, Indiana. Mary (daughter of John Butler, Sr. and Mary Elizabeth Dixon) was born in 1792 in Barren, Kentucky; died about 1865 in Crawford, Indiana. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    James and Mary married 1/7/1819; my deduction here is that our Mary's maiden name was Butler and she first married William Irvin in 1811 when she was 19. For some reason the marriage terminated, either death or divorce and she married James later.
