Subject: [OHTRUMBU] BENNETT - SUTLIFF Family Photographs
Date: Sun, 31 May 2009 08:46:45 -0700


I've "rescued" a group of five photographs all belonging to the same family
from Connecticut. Based on limited research I was able to gather
information regarding the family and have included that information along
with details of each of the photographs:

1.Jane Aurelia BENNETT SUTLIFF LYON, taken at the Gates Studio in
Norwich, CT, likely taken in the 1880's with Jane appearing to be in her
30's at the time, notes "wife of Levi G. SUTLIFF who died 1880" and "wife of
H. LYON 1899".

Jane Aurelia S. BENNETT b. 27 Dec 1849 in Norwich, CT to parents Nathan &
Abby J. BENNETT.
Jane married Levi Granger SUFLIFF (b. 23 Jun 1845 in Bazetta, OH) on the
26th of Apr 1870 in CT.
The couple had one daughter, Edith Granger SUTLIFF b. 20 Jun 1874 in
Norwich, CT.
Jane's second marriage was to Henry LYON (b. Feb 1832 in CT) whom she
married in about 1898 in CT.
Jane died sometime after 1920 in Norwich, CT.
