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