Mr. B. was born in the town of Milton, Saratoga county, February 10, 1798, and had therefore reached the good old age of 81 years, 4 months and 23 days. He was the second in a family of seven brothers. The most of them have been prominent citizens of this section of the country. Only two now survive, Otis, the oldest and the occupant of the family homestead in Saratoga county, and Stephen, a resident of Sandy Creek. When a young man, Mr. B. came to Sandy Creek and taught school a few seasons, but did not locate permanently. During that time, however, his acquaintance with one of his pupils ripened into an attachment, and on the 14th of October, 1822, he was united in marriage to Miss Susan Bennett. To them was granted what falls to the lot of but few wedded couples. Before death separated them they had seen their golden wedding day pass by more than half a dozen years. Several years of their wedded life were spent at his old Saratoga home, and of the children now living, three Addison and Otis Bentley, and Mrs. Charles Hinman, were born there. About 47 years since they removed to Sandy Creek. After a few years residence there they came to this place. Pulaski was their home until Mr. Bentley's death. He built the house in which he died, having occupied it for more than forty years. From it he was borne to his "long home," followed by many neighbors and citizens who respected his moral worth, and by a large concourse of relatives who cherish the memory of a kind and devoted husband, a gentle and loving father, and a firm and faithful friend.
