Rachel Mills and Hoyle Bennett


Rachel was the daughter of Jesse Mills and Onady Randolph. She was born July 20, 1908 near the Marietta community along the Itawamba-Prentiss border and was likely named for her grandmother, Onady's mother, Rachel, who died when Onady was a young girl. Rachel married Hoyle Bennett about 1929, and they had nine children. Rachel and Hoyle are buried in Jones Chapel Cemetery outside of Nettleton, both died in 1986 within months of each other.

Nine children. I get that they are beautiful and spoken out. I think hard work isn't for things you want to keep. Its for money
