    GREEN BENTLEY BENNETT, son of EPHRAIM BENNETT II and HANNAH BENTLEY, was born November 30, 1797 in Wellsburg, New York. He married (1) CYNTHIA MCCLURE, daughter of JOHN MCCLURE and SARAH CROSBY. She died in 1839. He married (2) ANNA BEERS TYLER.

    Notes: From the book "The Bennett, Bently and Beers Families" by S. B. Bennett [1899], "Greene Bentley, born at Wellsburg, N. Y., married (1) Cynthia McClure. She was a daughter of John of Thomas, of the migration: a Wyoming settler whose two older sons crossed at Mill Creek on the morning of the massacre and returned not, being presumably slain. Thomas, in 1790, built and kept a tavern at Tioga Point. John later bought the identical locality a Havana which was the site of Queen Catharine Montour's village. The writer remembers the original log house and the great apple trees which had sprung up from the stumps made by Sullivan's army. John's wife was Sarah Crosby, of Fishkill. His father came to Catharinestown with ox-teams.

    "Thomas of John of Thomas occupied the homestead upon which is the famous McClure's Glen, a rival to that of Watkin's, some say far more attractive. Two sons of Ephraim (5) married McClures and a daughter married William of that name. It is said that Marquis De La Fayette was entertained when in this country by both Thomas McClure and George Mills.

    "In 1825 Greene bought the farm in Dix, upon which he passed his life, finding there a log house which he occupied: afterward constructing the house now occupied by Charles Mitchell Bennett. Three years later he built a saw mill, the lumber from which was drawn to the head of Seneca Lake, four miles away. About 1840 he built a flouring mill on Post creek, which is still in operation. At this time he was fairly wealthy for those days, but judging other's honesty by his own he was induced to endorse the paper of one Nash, to whom the Col. had been a benefactor. Nash defaulted and then began harassing vexations and expensive litigations with the usual result, the backer paid. There was a long and trying struggle but when the endorser passed away he literally fulfilled the Scripture injunction, "owe no man anything" and left no debt unsettled, just or unjust.

    "Becoming a widower in 1839, he married, at Danby, N. Y., Anna Beers Tyler, by whom he had one son, Stephen Beers Bennett. He was the supervisor of the town of Dix in first board of Chemung county in 1836. He was first postmaster of the office at Moreland, N. Y., and continued for many years. The writer well remembers the tedious processes when every letter must have an accompanying way-bill, both being wrapped in a cover which was a work of art almost and required practice and skill. At this time railroads were few and coaching the fashion for people in the southern part of New York and northern Pennsylvania. Senaca Lake with its steamers was the route chosen eastward via. Albany, and west via. Buffalo. A daily line of stages to Watkin's ran between that town and Elmira and also Corning. Soon after ten A. M. the Corning mail arrived returning at two P. M. in an old-style springless but rocking coach; the front "boot" for small packages, the back one for baggage and drawn by four spanking horses. The writer has often seen four and five in a train and travel was very light when but one was required. Green B. was superintendent of the Chemung Canal System, 1846-1848, and again, 1851-1852, during which time the canals did a large business. In 1835, he was a member of New York State Assembly, outliving all but three of his colleagues, Hon. Thurlow Weed, Daniel S. Dickinson and another. The riding cloak, which was part of his outfit, is now in possession of his grandson, Lieut. Bennett. He was Colonel of militia prior to 1840, and frequently said he greatly desired to go out in 1812, but was refused because of his youth. During the political excitement caused by the alleged drowning of Morgan, who was said to have betrayed the secrets Freemasonry, by which the Hon. William H. Seward came into national repute, the Colonel was a "Masons' Jack," that is, one not a Mason, but who had faith in the good character of the fraternity. Later, he was a Democrat of the best school, and was certain that an honest Democrat's "the noblest work of God," and not scarce either. He knew but little about dirty politics, which he abhorred. He had much influence in the affairs of Chemung county, and in fact southern New York, prior to the war, and his advice was always sought in party councils. The things that came to him were unsought as he preferred to help others rather than himself. He had a large share of natural ability, and if his star had risen under later and brighter skies, he would have succeeded in professional life."
