SECOND LIEUTENANT JOHN CALDWELL BENNETT, Army Air Corps, eldest son of Verus Washington and Margaret Ruth (Caldwell) Bennett, was reported missing in action on 17 Jun 1944. A letter received from the War Department stated, "your son was a crew member on a B-24 J aircraft which took part in a combat mission to Truk Island. Just prior to the bomb run a "Japanese Zero" made a head on attack and dropped two phosphorous bombs, one of which exploded just in front of your son's plane, starting a fire in the forward bomb bay. The airplane left formation losing altitude rapidly. Attempts were made to contact the damaged plane on all radio frequencies without any success. All rescue facilities were notified, but no trace of the plane or any of the crew was found." John was born 13 Mar 1921 and was survived by his wife Jewell Graves.spouse: >private

JOSEPH PAINTER BENNETT, was born 2 Apr 1832 and died 21 May 1914; and married Margaret Hafer (1832-1893) on 2 Jan 1862; born 8 May 1832 and died 3 March 1893. It is probable that Joseph and his mother came to Bottle Run in the early 1850's. His mother lived in a log cabin a short distance from where Bethel Presbyterian Church now stands, having purchased a farm of about 360 acres. His father was dead, or whereabouts unknown, when Joseph and his mother came to Bottle Run. He was a devout Presbyterian Church member, and very active in organizing the Bethel Presbyterian Church at Bottle Run, two miles north of Williamsport, PA., and was one of the church's first elders. The church first met in the school house, later they met in the Grange Hall, until Joseph donated a parcel of land from his farm and the present Bethel Presbyterian Church was built about 1910; and was an active elder at the time of his death in 1914. The following five children were born of Joseph and Margaret (Hafer) Bennett: Clara H. Bennett, Janette Bennett, Mary Martha Bennett, George Washington Bennett, and Edward Coleman Bennett. All of the children lived and died in Lycoming County, PA.spouse: >Hafer, Margaret Caroline (1832 - 1893)

His Christian name is widely preserved among the descendants of his sister, Martha Bingham Bement. The third son, Daniel Bingham, also settled in Salisbury in 1750 and married Esther Willard 12 Jan 1775. They were the parents of Caleb Bingham, born 14 Mar 1794 and once the owner of a large farm between the Twin Lakes at Salisbury, later the well known preacher and bookseller of Boston, and the compiler of the "Columbian Orator", and the famous old school-reader "The National Preceptor."

THOMAS BINGHAM, the first of his name in New England, married at Norwich, 12 Dec 1666. He was a "master cuttler". Mary, doubtless the eldest daughter of Lieutenant Jonathan Rudd of Saybrooke, Connecticut, whose wife was, in 1647, the celebrated Bride of Bride Brook. The story told in verse and on the musty documents of Connecticut, for the marriage ceremony was performed by no less a person than the younger John Winthrop of New London, who, however, acting under a commission from Massachusetts, had no authority at Saybrooke, and thus required the contracting parties to meet him half-way between the two points, where the marriage was celebrated. Mr. Bingham remained at Norwich about 25 years, after which he settled at Windham, where he was deacon of the church and died 16 Jan 1730, aged eighty-eight years.spouse: >Rudd, Mary (1649 - 1726)

Anne Boleyn (1507?-36), second wife of Henry VIII, king of England. She was the daughter of Sir Thomas Boleyn, later earl of Wiltshire and Ormonde. After spending the years 1519 to 1521 at the French court, Anne returned to England and was courted by the heir to the earldom of Northumberland and by the king himself. Henry married Anne secretly in January 1533, some months before Thomas Cranmer, archbishop of Canterbury, pronounced Henry's divorce from his first wife, Catherine of Aragón. Anne was crowned in June and in September gave birth to the future queen Elizabeth I.spouse: >Henry, ? VIII, King of England (1491 - 1547)
On May 2, 1536, Anne was imprisoned in the Tower of London on charges of adultery with her brother, three gentlemen of the privy chamber, and a musician of the court and of conspiring with these men against the king's life. The four commoners were tried on May 12, and Anne and her brother on May 15; all were convicted of high treason. Whether Anne was guilty of these crimes has never been determined. It is known that Henry wanted to remarry. Anne's uncle, Thomas Howard, 3rd duke of Norfolk, presided over the judges who condemned her to death. No record of the evidence remains. On May 17, the musician was hanged, and the other four beheaded. Two days later, Anne was also beheaded. King Henry was betrothed to Jane Seymour the next day.
