Bennett, James F. (possibly 1880-1964)

James F. Bennett was an employee of Gault Brothers, a wholesale dry goods and men’s furnishings company. He lived at 761 Denman Street in 1917 and 1918.

This may be the same James F. Bennett who was an employee of the Imperial Bank in 1910, the C.D. Rand’s real estate company in 1911, and the Quebec Bank in 1913 and 1916. James Francis Bennett was born in Chester, Cheshire, England, on August 13, 1880. His father was Edmund Francis Thomas Bennett; his mother was Mildred Dunin Ommanney.

On February 23, 1910, in Matsqui Municipality, James Francis Bennett married Bernice Martha Maclure. Bernice was born in Victoria, British Columbia on November 9, 1885. Her father was John Charles Maclure (1862-1955); her mother was Alice Celia Richardson (about 1858-1915).

About 1920, James and Bernice moved to California. By 1930, they were living in Los Angeles. In 1936, James became a naturalized United States citizen. In 1937, Bernice also became a naturalized United States citizen.

In 1942, James registered with the United States draft system. He was living at 8008 Blackburn Avenue in Los Angeles; he was working at Herbert’s Drive In, 7870 Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles.

Bernice died in Los Angeles on November 19, 1961. She was buried in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles.

James died in Los Angeles on August 13, 1964. He was buried in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles.

James and Bernice had a daughter.

 

Frances Bernice Bennett

Frances Bernice Bennett was born in Canada, probably in Vancouver, on September 12 or 16, probably in 1912. She moved to California with her parents. She became an artist and decorator.

On June 5, 1931, in Los Angeles, Frances married Herbert Edwin Hewston, who was working in the advertising business. He was born on March 26, 1911, in California. Hs parents were Ernest Williams Hewston and Natalie Theodora Brittan. In 1940, Herbert was a film technician; Frances was an interior decorator. They were living in Burbank, California, along with their daughter, Natalie, who was born about on June 16, 1938, in Los Angeles County, California.

In 1941, Francis became a naturalized United States citizen.

Herbert’s and Frances’s marriage seems to have ended in divorce by 1942.

On November 29, 1942, in Los Angeles, Frances married Harold Vane Redpath. He was born in California on July 1, 1902. His parents were Kenneth Vane Redpath and Lottie Howard Lufkin. This marriage ended in divorce. On April 3, 1957, in Los Angeles, Harold married Marjorie Valentine Haly (née Valentine); she was born in Iowa. Harold died in Los Angeles on May 22, 1959.

On May 25, 1968, in Los Angeles, Herbert Hewston married Hanna Palmer (Igar). She was born about 1918. Herbert died in Ventura, California, on April 15, 1997. It appears that Hannah died in Oxnard, California on August 24, 2007.
