William M. Bennight and Sarah McCubbin

There are a few discrepancies between the three entries below, as they came from different sources and I put them up here exactly as I found them.  I am personally still trying to determine if Sarah McCubbin married my great grandfather, William Bennight (see my family chart) or some other William Bennight. Perhaps someone reading this will have more information to offer.

Sarah McCubbin, who married William Bennight, came to Miller County in the middle 1830’s where her husband, a miller, practiced his trade at Sartar’s Mill near the Big Saline Creek, later becoming the sole proprietor of the enterprise.
