Do you have any location - Country - city, town of b, m, d for either person?  Any names of parents, siblings, spouses, children?
Sarah Jane Bennett Gunnin was my great grandmother.  She was born in 1870.  She married Jesse David Newton Gunnin.  They lived in Green County and Jackson County, Ga.  All I know about Essie Bell Bennett is that she was Sarah Jane's mother.  I do not know what the family connection was of Miles Bennett.  I only have a family photo of him with his name and the year, 1947,  written on the back.  He appeared to be in his fifties.
I have found who I thought to be Essie Bell Bennett to actually be Sarah Isabel Puckett Bennett.  She was born on Feb. 14, 1845, died on Feb 3, 1936.  She married William Rice Bennett, born Oct. 28, 1845, died Julu 10, 1871.  They married on Jan. 31,  1869

Now, I need to know his heritage.  Miles Bennett relationship to him I still do not know.  He was not the brother of Sarah Jane Bennett Gunnin.  I now know her siblings.

It is so great to get that information on Miles Bennett.  Now can you tell me who  Miles and Sarah Jane's father was and some information on their mother, Essie Bell Bennett.
father"s name Stephen, spouse in 1880 M. Adline (looks like 2nd wife, 14 years younger than him)  go to familysearch.org. look through Georgia census records.  Start with Sarah Jane's name, look for entry with above named parent, collect other names listed on census, then track them through Georgia

The Sarah Bennet sister of Miles in the 1880 census appears to be the daughter of Stephen Bennett and M(ary) Adeline Sexton.  It also appears that this Sarah married Marion M Stone?  There is a Sarah Bennett married to Jesse Gunion/Gunnin.  These women don't appear to be the same Sarah as Sarah Stone and Sarah Gunnin are both in 1900 census data with their husbands.  Didn't find Essie Belle anywhere although she could be Isabelle, Esther etc.

The answer saying Sarah Jane Bennett, born 1870 in S.C is correct , married to Jesse Gunnin in 1882.  Sarah Jane died April 24, 1936. The census giving the children is the right Sarah Jane Bennett.  The Jane Bennett that you listed as brother of Miles Bennett is not the right Sarah Jane Bennett.  Can you use the correct information that I have verified to locate her parents, with Maybe Essie Bell Bennett as her mother  I can not determine,  from the information you gave me, what the relationship is of Sarah Jane Bennett Gunnin and my Miles Bennett
