Van Gundy Family Tree

Notes for Rebecca BENNETT

From Church and Family History Research Assistance for Clark County, Illinois:

"Concord (better known today as "Richwoods") Church was organized September 4, 1831, by Thomas Frozier and wife, Absalom Kester and wife, and Rebecca Davis....

The church became a member of the Wabash District Association in 1832, and their messengers were John Bennett, Joseph Redman and Isaac Daughette....

The church met in the homes of its members until a log house was built on the plot of ground now used as the cemetery near the present location. In 1853 a frame house 24 by 35 feet was built; it was replaced in 1886 by a large brick building with dimensions of 36 by 50 feet, which is still in use."

Son, Josephus, told the 1880 census taker his mother was born in IN.
