  • Notes 
    • In the 1920 Federal Census, John A. Bennett is age 29 and living with his wife Mary and two young daughters, Laura & Lillian. They are residing on Bluff St. in East Providence with Mary's parents and three of her sisters.

      In 1930, John A. Bennett is age 39 and divorced, a lodger on Weybosset St. in Providence, RI. He is still a lawyer.

      In 1940 he is living with wife Jane and two children in Warwick, RI. He is a lawyer and son John Jr. is an apprentice lawyer.

      His 1942 draft registration card identifies him as John Alan Bennett age 47; living at 37 Clearwater St., Gaspee Plateau, Warwick, RI; self-employed in the Turks Head Building, Providence; (wife?) Mrs. Jane S. Bennett.

      The obituary gives his dob as 27 June 1893; his draft registration says 27 June 1894; both give birthplace as Waltham, MA. However, the birth records for Waltham don't have his birth record for either year.

      He may be the John Henry Bennett born 28 June 1890 (illegitimate male) at Waltham, MA, to John Bennett & Jennie O'Connell. John Sr. was a patternmaker; both John & Jennie were born in Waltham according to the birth record. In the Federal Census of 1910, John J. & Jennie Bennett are living in Providence, RI; they have two children, John 19 and Eva 18. John Sr. is a patternmaker at a foundry. His parents and Jennie's parents were born in Ireland.

      The burial record at Swan Point gives his parents as John and Mary (O'Connor) Bennett. This seems to suggest that the above-mentioned couple might be his parents. I haven't found any other couple with similar names in the Waltham birth records. Eva was born 28 Oct 1891 in Waltham to John J. Bennett and Jane M. O'Connell.
