10. Story. I have two photos showing Knox with Harold, Charles, Allsey, and Houston.

11. Research: Explore family lines for Susan. In April 2016 e-mail, Susan Bennett Kirkpatrick said "I would love to know more about the Bennett family. On my Dad's side I only know about the Graham and Nye family which is my paternal Grandmother. We can trace them to the Mayflower. It is interesting that Ed's Mother had a relative on the Mayflower that was in business with my relative. So we have distant connections. Not much interest in the Bennett family and not many of them left. I would love to know more about mother's family too."

In later email she said "I know very little. When I was in the 5th grade actually " interviewed POP" my dad's father. I know the family was from Bennettsville SC. I know he had a brother named EMPY or empie Forgot so much. Have no idea how to spell it. I know my grandmother Gertrude that married POP... was hired as a teacher for the family and workers on the farm the Bennett family owned. Michelle Sterns may have done some research!. She is my dad's sister's child. My first cousin."
