      Greetings David -

      I am reaching out to see if you could help me obtain more information on an ancestor of mine who has been a challenge. In particular I am interested in the ancestry of Mahlon Bennett. I believe Mahlon was born in 1772 and died in 1848, both events in Brooklyn. He married Elizabeth Hackstaff, b. 03 May 1788 in Sing Sing, Westchester County, NY and died on 23 Dec 1858, probably in Brooklyn. They are my 4th great grandparents. They had a daughter named Clara Ann Bennett who married Nathaniel Ferris Waring.

      I see your postings for the Marshall and Allied Families and wondered if you have any more information on Mahlon Bennett and his ancestors. I believe he was a charter member of the Masons, affiliated with the Lotus Lodge. That is pretty much all I know of him.

      My relation from Mahlon and Elizabeth Hackstaff Bennett is

      Clara Ann Bennett m. Nathaniel Ferris Waring
      William Henry Waring m. Kate Bernard
      Charlotte Hackstaff Waring m. (Frederick) Douglass Fitch
      John Douglass Fitch m. Mary Hamilton Grover
      Alan Douglass Fitch
      Alan Douglass Fitch, Jr. (me)

      I would love to share information and would be particularly interested in any insight you have on Mahlon Bennett and his ancestors.

      Thank you

      Alan D. Fitch, Jr
