    • In speaking of the death of Squire Bennett, of Mason, the Times-Star says:  "He came to Cincinnati in 1840 with but twenty-five cents in his pocket.  He had but a penny left after paying for supper and lodging.  He went bravely forth the next day to find employment and his courage won.  After years of labor, in which offices of honor and trust were bestowed upon him, he departs to an eternity of peace."

    • R. H. BENNETT.
      Unexpected Death of One of Mason's Most Prominent Citizens.

      Mason, September 13. - Last Sunday night at 12 o'clock R. H. Bennett, one of our oldest and most respected citizens, died at his home in east Mason.  He was sick only a few days but his sufferings were intense.  The deceased was born in Westmoreland county, Pennsylvania, in 1819, but migrated to Ohio at an early age.  He was married to Miss Catherine Bennett, who has borne him three children, two of whom survive him.  Mr. Bennett by his integrity and energy has amassed quite a fortune.  He has been engaged in public business for a number of years and will be greatly missed.  He was unassuming in disposition and was always liberal and willing to aid a worthy cause.  SInce 1863 he has been justice of the peace and notary public, always discharging his duties to the entire satisfaction of all those whose interests were in his hands.  The funeral took place at this late residence on Wednesday, Rev. Rankin officiating.  The bereaved family have the sympathy of the entire community.
