There were BENNETT's who came from Northampton County, NC...not far from Gates County. Winborne ODOM m. Mary BENNETT..she was born 1792. She was the daughter of Bowen BENNETT b. about 1770 NC and Rhoda BOYKIN. Winborne died 1826 Putnam County, Ga and was the last slave holder of my 4th grandmother. Mary marrried 2nd Isham SHIRLING in 1827 Putnam County. She died 1874 same county.
I have been working with a descendant of Winborne and Mary (Bennett)Odom but as far as we know there wasn't any Indian connections to this particular direct line, however I thought I would let you know about the BENNETT's in this county in case you were interested:)
