OSCAR "BEEF" BENNETT

Information from Kerry Elkins about this photograph:

My grandfather, Esley Elkins, was in Freeman in 1918/19 visiting while he was in the Army. I have many pictures of the Blanton family including Mae and John. Many pictures were taken at our house. He had a friend there, Oscar Bennett. Oscar was a butcher. I do not know if this would be Oscar "Beef" Bennett or his son. It is an excellent photo. I include it. If anyone you know is interested, I have many available for free on the web. Here is Oscar.

Information from Mr. Bennett's daughter, Betty Bennett Hamilton (BHS Class '46):

The photograph is of Oscar "Beef" Bennett who at one time had a butcher shop next door to the Buckeye Coal Company store in Freeman. The butcher shop is featured in the photograph of FREEMAN that was taken in 1901. Oscar "Beef" Bennett was also chief of police and had his office in the west end of the "Coon" Freight Station on the Freeman side, (north) of the Bluestone River.
