Reverend John & Anna Catherine SOWERS/ BENNETT
Wedding Picture - October 19, 1873.

Jerry Miller sends this picture of Rev. John Bennett and his new wife Anna Catherine Sowers.
Jerry writes:
"Reverend Bennett preached in and around the Artemas area. He was a Church of the Brethren
minister. He was a teacher in early years, then a merchant & farmer. In his business in Artemas, he was also the Postmaster. Artemas was named for his great-uncle, Artemas
Bennett, who was the first postmaster."
Rev. John Bennett was a son of Israel M. Bennett and Susan Martin.
