From the Bennett Family Bible Records:
On December 26, 1845, Mary Polly Cauthen Bennett, wife of Simon P. Bennett and mother of the Bennett Boys (Alfred, Philemon, William Ruffin, James Kerney, Horry, George Washington, Reuben, and Simon Cauthen) died giving birth to her tenth child, Simon Cauthen Bennett.
In 1849 Simon P. Bennett married a second time to Sallie Baskins Horton, a widow, and sister of his daughter-in-law, Elizabeth Wells Baskins, wife of son, Philemon.
Sarah (Sallie) Baskins married Lewis Horton first.
Family tradition says that four of the Horton sons were in he Confederate War, and consequently TWELVE SONS of Simon Bennett and Sarah B. Horton Bennett served in the Confederate cause. All returned, but George Washington Bennett; he died from wounds received at Chickamauga.
Simon Cauthen Bennett was returned home because of his youth.
