Descendants of John Coleman & Elizabeth Lawrason
     Caroline Bennett was born in September 1865 at Waterloo County, Ontario.1 She married William Moe, son of Henry Moe and Sarah (--?--), on 2 December 1884 at Bayham Twp, Elgin County, Ontario. (notes: The marriage registration is badly faded, but appears to read:

002820-84 Bayham Twp., Elgin Co. William Moe, 27, born and residing Bayham, bachelor, farmer. Parents Henry and Sarah Moe. Caroline Bennett, 19, residing Bayham, born Waterloo. Spinster, parents Isaac and Caroline Bennett. The witness appears to bear the last name of Heffernan.The rest of the document is too faded to read.).1
She died in 1945 at Kenosha, Wisconsin.1 There are discrepancies for the year given for Caroline's birth in various records. It may be 1865 or 1867.

Caroline's death year is taken from the Aylmer Express issue of May 10, 1945, page 4, c 2:
c2 Died - Caroline MOE, Kenosha, Wisconsin, nee BENNETT, sister of Mrs. I. N. NEWELL

Though Caroline is said in her marriage record to have been born in Waterloo, in the 1881 census the family is at Wyoming in Lambton County. Her father is said to be a carpenter. Caroline's age is given as 14, which would place her birth in 1867.1
