Is He Alexandre Benoit?

Is this the death certificate of Alexander Bennett who enlisted in Hinesburg on May 7th, 1861?

Alexander Bennett death certificate 10 October 1908

Is this information found on the site reliable?

Bennett, Alexander, Age: 20, cred. Hinesburg, VT; service: enl 5/7/61, m/i 6/20/61, Pvt, Co. G, 2nd VT INF, dsrtd 9/12/63  Born: 01/12/1835, Unknown; Died: 10/10/1908; Buried: Saint Peters Cemetery, Vergennes, VT (not found)

I won’t let you vote on this. Alexander Bennett and Alexandre Benoit are the same person. Too many clues point to Teresa’s distant ancestor. Even though Alexandre Benoit deserted the Union Army on September 12, 1863, we don’t have to pass judgment on his actions without knowing about the Civil War.

Next time, we will go back in time in 1857, in a little place called Vergennes, Vermont.

One thought on “Is He Alexandre Benoit?

  1. I would never pass judgement on anyone’s actions that was in the Civil War or any war. Unless we actually walked in their shoes, one doesn’t know what they saw and how it affected them personally. May God bless them all…..Susan
