      Benjamin, called Bennet, a younger brother of Richard was among thefirst settlers. Born in Maryland in the 1750s, he probably emigratedto Kentucky with his brother. Although not mentioned by Webb, it iscertain he came to Casey Creek in 1802, or shortly after that date. Itis said that he purchased land adjoining his brother's farm. Anothertradition states that his land was located on Casey Creek, above thepresent town of Clementsville. We cannot discover the original deeds.Perhaps he moved to the second farm in later years.
      His descendants are numerous in Casey County. Among the older membersof the congregation still active in parish affairs is Noah Wethington,a grandson of Bennet Jr, and a great-grandson of the pioneer Benjamin(Bennet).
