Pardon my language, but…


Diane of the Genealogy Inside blog posted today about the Wyoming Newspaper Project. I have several Bennett ancestors who were cattle ranchers in Wyoming in the late 1800s-early 1900s. When I read her post, I instantly went to the site and started looking for mention of my Bennetts. After about 5 minutes, look what I found:

The Guernsey Gassette
(Guernsey, Platte County, Wyoming)
Volume XIX Number 1 Page 1
Nov 9, 1917

Charles Bennett was my maternal second great granduncle!

Guess what I’ll be doing all evening!
