Card of Thanks
We extend our sincere thanks to all the neighbors, relatives, and friends for their kindness, sympathy and flowers. Signed: The Bennett Family.
NOTE -- In the above article, Margaret Burke Bennett's death date is listed as May 16, 1916. This is likely a mistake since a copy of her obituary was found in a 1917 newspaper and listed the death date as March 20, 1917. Their marriage date is also in question, since Margaret's obituary listed it as Oct. 18, 1893, but her husband's obituary lists it as 1890.
