Biography

BENJAMIN was born in Coventry, Tolland, CT. He married Oct. 7, 1787, LUCRETIA RICHARDSON, and settled in Pelham, Hampshire, MA, where he was a member of the School Committee in 1798. He later moved to Ludlow, Hampden, MA., and from there to Greenwich, Hampshire, MA, then to Bennington, Bennington, VT. BENJAMIN's uncle Thomas died in Bennington in 1812, and is buried there.

From Bennington, BENJAMIN moved to Geauga County, OH. He then moved, with the family of his grandson, Christopher (son of James Marsh Jewett) to McHenry County, IL, and later settled near Antioch, Lake, IL, where he died on Oct. 14, 1845. Lake Co. is about 50 miles north of downtown Chicago, in the extreme northeast corner of Illinois. Prior to March, 1839, the Lake County area was part of McHenry County.

Several other Jewetts settled in the area. Children of BENJAMIN's brother, Nathan (Henry, Walter P., William Nelson, and Rev. Nathan) appear in records of McHenry County, living near Woodstock. Also, children of those children can be found there. Rev. Nathan Jewett was very prominent in the area, establishing several churches. William Nelson Jewett, and his family, moved back to Ludlow, MA.
