Bennett, Perry

Bennett, Perry a Baptist minister, was born at Stonington, Conn., in 1824. He early evinced more than ordinary intellectual ability, and attained a high degree of scholarship without graduating from college. He was baptized in 1849, while principal of the academy at Wickford, R. I. In 1852 he was ordained pastor of the Church in Lebanon, Conn., where he remained two years; was pastor at Cold Spring, N. Y., one year; and in the spring of 1856 removed to Winchester, Ill., and was pastor five years; then went to Berlin, Sangamon Co., in which county he labored for thirteen years with great success. The last two years of his life he had charge of a school in Springfield, supplying, for most of the time, the pulpit of the North Church in that city. He died Sept. 5, 1873. See Minutes of Ill. Anniversaries, 1873, p. 15, 16. (J. C. S.)
