Mike Watson: Mr. Cullins discovered a highly useful citizen
An interesting bit of history from Brush Creek area, Green County, KY from Mike Watson
By Mike Watson, Adair County Historian
A Prolific Family - Mr. J.C. Cullins, a well known stock man of the Smith's Grove neighborhood, has just returned from a business trip to Green County, this State. While absent, he spent one night with an old gentleman on Brush Creek and there learned from him an interesting piece of family history:
The gentleman's name is James Bennett, and he has been married three times, has twenty-seven living children, sixty-five grandchildren, and one hundred and twenty-seven great grandchildren, and he himself is only sixty, while his present wife is about thirty-five years old.
A short time since this clever old farmer and highly respected Green County citizen held a family reunion at his house, his family being so numerous as to fill both house and yard.
Mr. Bennett would have been a highly useful citizen in the early settlement of this country.
- Semi-Weekly South Kentuckian, Hopkinsville, KY, 6 July 1886, copied from Bowling Green Democrat.
