I don't have a birthdate for Elizabeth Bennett. She may have been a sister to Abraham, probably a younger sister. Elizabeth's husband Gerardus Townsend was born before 1735, as he had reached legal age to inherit the estate of Joseph Harcutt in 1756. Elizabeth died in 1796 in Chemung, Tioga Co., NY (formerly Montogmery Co., now Schuyler Co.). Elizabeth and Gerardus, a few of their children, and several other Bennetts arrived in Chemung around 1790/91. Elizabeth and Gerardus named one of their sons Abraham and had a grandson named Ephraim. A connection?
