About William Bennett

Among the good boys of the congregation who were in that grand Sabbath School celebration, when this house probably contained eight hundred persons, it is most likely that Ethan Osborn Bennett had a place. His Bennett ancestors here were Samuel, who built the saw mill and flour mill at Bennett Town ; Nathan, who was born November 5, 1752, and died June 22, 1818, and Nathan's son, who was born January 18, 1785, and died in Crawfordsville, Indiana, January 4, 1866, where his wife, Esther Elmer, born November 29, 1787, also died, December 17, 1859. This father of Ethan Osborn Bennett was for a long time an Elder of the Presbyterian Church. Ethan Osborn Bennett pursued his collegiate studies in the Rev. Dr. David Nelson's Institute, Quincy, Illinois, and his theological course partly in Yale College and partly in Oberlin College, where he was graduated in the class of 1853, and soon after became the minister of Anamosa, Iowa. There he married, November 7, 1854, Laura A. Pulsifer, of Westfield, Massachusetts. They have one son and three daughters, and all the children live with their parents in Brighton, Iowa.
