  • Notes 
    • We have yet to locate a grave for John in British Columbia, Canada.

      It is unclear at this time if John Bentley and Jane Cockshire had a falling out and if they actually divorced. Although original marriage documents for them have not been found, it was always portrayed they had wed. The last listing for John in Quebec was 16 Apr 1891 in Wolfe County, and although records suggest his son Frank Harry or Harvey Bentley was born 12 Dec 1892 in the United States of America, or in Montreal Quebec there is no definitive proof as to his path or actions at this time. We do not know know when John met Arabella Cassedy and where or if they married, although later records claim they were married.
