MAYNARD W. BENNETT

Maynard William Bennett, was born in Chermong county, New York, Sept. 4, 1844, and died at his home in Dexter, Iowa, after a brief illness, on March 7, 1920, aged 75 years, 6 months and 3 days.

When but a child, he moved with his parents to Plano, Ill., where he grew to manhood. He was married to Elmira E. Sinclair, Sept. 6, 1868, and after three years of wedded life, the union was broken by the death of his wife. He was married again to Elsie Sophia Sinclair, Sept. 19, 1875. Two children blessed this union, both having died years ago.

About 1878 Mr. Bennett moved to Iowa and settled on a farm near Pitzer, living on the same farm for 40 years. In the fall of 1918, he moved to Dexter.

The immediate relatives who remain to mourn his loss are his wife, one sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Maxwell of Elmwood, Ill.; and one granddaughter, Miss Nellie Bennett of Dexter.

Mr. Bennett was converted when a boy, and united with the Baptist church and remained in that communion all his life. He was a man highly respected by all who knew him, honorable in his dealings and withal a devoted Christian.

Funeral services were held Wednesday morning in the Methodist church, conducted by Rev. E. E. Ilgenfritz. Interment was in the Earlham cemetery.
