Bennett, Oscar F., was born in the town of Howard, September 3, 1832, on the farm he now owns and occupies. He is a son of Benjamin B. Bennett, who was a descendant of Jacob Bennett, who settled in this town in 1808, in what is known as the Howard Flats, and was the seventh settler of the township, which at that time comprised a great part of Fremont, and a portion of Hornellsville and Avoca. This family are extensive land owners. Benjamin Bennett married Mariette Mapes, and no children were born to them. He married the second time, Mary A. Armstrong, and seven children were born to them: David, Adelia, Amanda, Oscar F., as above, Asenith, Oiner, and Mary.

Mr. Bennett was supervisor of the town in 1883-4, being elected over a Republican majority of nearly 100. He is a member of the Masons, Lewis Lodge, No. 104.
