Icie was the daughter of Sylvester Bennett and Rohann Riddell, I dont know the date of Rohann's death but Sylvester remraries
in 1897 and Ice was born in 1893 so she was 4 when her mother dies or her father remarries. From what I have everyone thinks
that Susan Bennett is Icie's mother but that is not the case. My research on the Riddell's is very slow. When I do find something
on that line I will post it.
I will put Roanna Riddell as the first wife of Sylvester but I still need to prove it so remember it may not be accurate
at this time . I do believe she is Icie's mother from what I have found so I will put it on here that way and Susan as his
second wife. As soon as I get the dates and places to go with these names I will get them on here. If you have any info to
help please let me know.

The ages for Sylvester and Roanna are right but I have a son named Elza, born in 1869 that
is unaccounted for. Icie was not born til 1893 so she will not show up yet. I am hoping this is the correct family. Any info
? Please contact me is you do. 12/18/01
This was told to my mother by my father:
He was 6 yrs old when his mother died and he remembered them finding her in
her bed in a pool of blood. She was pregnant at the time . He thought she had taken something to lose the baby. All we know
is that she died of massive bleeding in her bed. 12/18/01
