Every early settler of Comanche co. now living can doubtless well remember Mr. and Mrs. H. S. Bennett, who for several years, were residents of Coldwater. The Avery-Bennett block, the building now owned
by Geo. H. Torrey and occupied by the Roberts-Phebus Hardware Co., were built during the year 1888 by Mr. Bennett and C. T. Avery. A few years later Mr. and Mrs. Bennett moved to Williamsburg, Franklin co., Kansas, where they continued to make their home. Mr. Bennett died on July 15, 1911. Two weeks ago (on April 18) Mrs. Bennett died at her home in Williamsburg at the age of 67 years, 2 months and 16 days. Six children were born to this union - S. H. Bennett of Kansas City; Mrs. Carrie  Davis of Augusta, Kans.; E. S. Bennet of Kansas City; Mrs. Jennie Covert
of Big Springs, Texas; R. W. Bennett of Lansing, Michigan and Mrs. Grace Wallis of Williamsburg, Kansas. Mrs. Bennett also leaves four step-children - Mrs. Emma Trummel of Wilmore, Kans., J. K. Bennett of
Wichita, Kans,; B. D. Bennett of Ottawa , Kans., and Weldon M. Bennett of Big Springs, Texas. Mrs. Catherine Marvel of Aurora, Nebr., and Mrs.
Anna Knecht of this county are sisters of Mrs. Bennett. There are also  five surviving half-brothers - R. Darnell of Needles, Calif., T. Darnell of Hominy, Okla.; J. Darnell of Cambridge, Kans.; E. Darnell of Romeo,
Texas, and A. T. Darnell of Dallas, Texas. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Knecht and Mrs. Trummel of this county were among those present at the funeral.
