Any knowledge of Benjamin Bennett, wife Joan Kirkwood Bennett, children
Thomas Law Bennett, John and Thomas Johnston, males all miners in the 1893
Electora Roll, Denniston. They arrived after the 1871 census in Scotland,
and prior to 1880 when daughter Georgina married into the Manderson
families, also of Denniston. All born Scotland pre- 1871 census. (Joan
Johnston remarried after the death of her husband back in Scotland.) Did the
West Coast mining company's recruit Scottish miners about this period? Les
