Here are some to check out on familysearch, maybe you'll find the connection.  The informant on William Earley Bennetts death record is "Lump" Bennett, and Wm and Lucy have a son named Lumpkin on the 1880 Census.

This appears to be Mandy Bennett Hawkes Death certificate information from 1932:

North Carolina, Deaths, 1931-1994," index, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FP61-CJ5 : accessed 29 Dec 2012), Lucy Short in entry for Manda H. Hawkes, 17 Nov 1932.

If you look around and search elsewhere on the FamilySearch.org website you may find much more about Mandy and Lucy and Lucy's parents.

I went on familysearch.org and there are a lot of Lucy Short's. Nora Mandy Bennett and Warren Monroe Hawks got married in Banks County, GA in 1898 and then moved to Jackson County, GA.

Which is why dates, locations, precise names and names of family members are so necessary when doing this research.

And a big dose of patience and discernment as well!  enlightened
