      James Bennett is buried along side his father, William M. Bennett, in Provident Baptist Cemetery, Orange Co., Indiana. He lived all his life in southern Orange County, Indiana, where he raised a family of 6 children, and in addition raised his niece, Rebecca (Beckie) Bennett, who was left orphaned by the death of her father, Sanford, in 1863, and her mother, Catherine Yates Bennett. Beckie was about the age of James' own daughter, and many people thought them to be twins.

      During a family argument in the John Brown family, a shot was fired into the home of James Bennett by an unidentified person, who apparently meant to kill him. The shot, however, hit his wife, Sarah (Sally) in the abdomen instead and caused the loss of their unborn child.
