Polhemus Family Burial Grounds
My 4th great grandmother, Alkey VAN MATER Polhemus Bennett, is buried with her 2nd husband, Albert Polhemus, in the Polhemus Family Burial Grounds off of Laird & Phalanx Roads in Colts Neck, NJ.
Alkey was born on November 12, 1738 and died October 24, 1804.
Her first husband was my 4th great grandfather, William Bennett. Born: 1741. Died: 1794
I visited this cemetery in August of 2017. As of that date it has been restored and is in very good conditon. There are additional Bennett relatives buried here.
Sons of the American Revolution
The family has direct bloodline connections to the Lippincott, Wainright and Van Mater families who all fought for the Patriots in the Revolutionary War. I have been accepted as a member of the Monmouth County chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution through my 4th great grandfather, CYRENIUS VAN MATER, who assisted in establishing American Independence while acting in the capacity of: NJ - PRIVATE - under CAPT. HENRY WADDELS'S COMPANY OF GRENADIERS; AND COL. TAYLOR, 1ST REGT. OF MONMOUTH CO.

Cyrenius was my 4th great grandfater, the father of my 3rd great grandmother, Elizabeth A Van Mater. Elizabeth was married to my 3rd great grandfather, John W Bennett.
Logan - Bennett Burial Grounds
This burial ground is located in Colts Neck, NJ, on private property in a very difficult to access, heavily wooded setting. I visited the site in August of 2017 and found that it has been completely neglected and is in serious ruins.
There are direct Bennett descendents buried here.
