I am working on getting more information on my GGrandfather Sam Bennett. His birth certificate says he was born in Longwood, LA, but we are fairly certain his name is a variant of an Italian name perhaps Salvatore Benedetti or Benetti????? He was born 25 Mar 1883, but rumor is he came from somewhere in Italy. I have no info on his parents and he had no apparent siblings. I am lost!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
