Sarah Tillotson Bennett


Bennett, James A (Adopt a stone)

Sarah was born June 15, 1863 in Chariton County to James W & Amanda Yancey Tillotson.  She married Richard Bennett in 1882 and they were the parents of George W. and Charles A. Bennett and an infant who died young.  Richard died January 17, 1888 and is buried in Dooley-Vohner Cemetery.  In 1901, Sarah married James Bennett, a brother of Richard.  Sarah died February 12, 1933 and is buried in Bennett Cemetery north of Keytesville.  James remarried after Sarah's death and left Chariton County and is buried elsewhere although his name appears on the stone.

This thick angled stone was off the base.  The base was leveled, the stone reset, sealed and cleaned.  To 'adopt' this restored marker please remit payment of $125 or any portion thereof to "Jacob's Ladder" Cemetery Restoration Specialists and mail to Chariton County Historical Society, P.O. Box 114, Salisbury, Missouri 65281.  "Jacob's Ladder" will donate 10% of the 'adopted' cost to Bennett Cemetery for maintenance and further restoration.  Thank you for your support of this Adopt a Stone project.
