Good morning and thanks for the message and sorry to hear that Davids son presumably my cousin had died, Thursday last week was the day i looked at the Rootschat.
David senior was I think in the nicest terms a bit of  a rogue my mother used to smile fondly when his name was mentioned and his past was never really gone to in detail.
Probably quite a character
Regards Iain

Dave Bennetts mother was Mary Jane Rennie born in Leswalt Scotland on I think February 29th 1880 leap year day. She used to tell me she had a birthday every four years. Mary Jane and her sibllings appear in the census of 1891.
Mary Jane was my grandmother and I recall her well

Good afternoon
Dave Bennett was my uncle although I never met him. My mother Winfred or Winnie talked about him and he certainly had a colourful life and yes bigamy was mentioned !
I know various people tried to trace him I think with no success, I seem to recall him going to South Africa but that may not be correct.
Great stuff families !
His mother Mary Jane was my maternal grandmother

Hello and good afternoon. Mary Jane Rennie born 1880, was my maternal grandmother and I remember her very well. Sarah, her sister if I recall correctly became a Murdoch and her husband was a fisherman and she lived in Stranraer. I think their brothers went to Canada. My mother was one of six children with Mary Jane being their mother. They were, Kathleen, David, Jean, Gordon, George and  Winifred my mother I  am in touch with two of my cousins, Gordon's two daughters.
Mary Jane died in Liverpool.
Hope this helps
