Rev Reed Bennett Correction; Gromley Family Additions

I have corrected an error in my tree, as the parents of Rev. Oren Reed Bennett 1895-1966 are Jerome S Bennett and Alverta Rairigh of Montgomery Twp, Indiana Co, Pa, and not Isaac Bennett and Mary Jane Adams. I was investigating whether Laura Stiles and Cora Gromley were married to the same Reed Benett, and indeed they were, verified by his obituary on 29 Mar 1966 in the Indiana Evening Gazette, which is available in Ancestry's Historical Newspaper Collection.

While I was at that I did expand greatly on his first wife Cora's Gromley family in the northeast part of Indiana Co. Most of the additions were on the families of the brothers Obadiah and Josiah Gromley, and also that John J Gromley 1807-1890, was the father of Aaron 1840-, and son of Christian.

Thank you for your work. Rev. Oren Reed Bennett was my Grandfather via his Daughter Wilma Jean Bennett Gangi (4/24/1952 - 12/20/1993). I have been able to fill in some gaps to my family tree thanks to you. I am new to genealogy research.
