    • Death certificate says in part:
      "J[oseph] V. TUREAUD, a native of New Orleans residing at 1422 Ursuline ... hereby declares that Walter BENNETT (col), a native of New Orleans, aged 35 years, departed this life yesterday, 19 May 1910 [unclear] 1823 Carondolet Walk - [unclear]. Cause of death [unclear]."
      There are some hand written comments on the certificate that are also unclear.

      Joseph V. TUREAUD, age 42, was living at 1422 Ursuline with his wife [Effie B. MOSS] and seven of eight children at the time of the 1910 census. His occupation is listed as laborer, odd jobs. Lloyd BENNETT recalls that Mr. TUREAUD was a very short man, maybe 4 feet high, and that his wife, Effie, was also small and had a broken back. (Joseph and Effie were married 21 Dec 1892; Vol. 16, page 483.)

    • Many of the burial records pre-1950 were lost in a fire. The remnants are available on microfilm at the main New Orleans Public Library.
    Notes 
    • Based on several records, it appears that Walter's father and mother (William Walker Bennett and Rebecca Culberson) were not married. After Rebecca died in 1880, it appears that Walter went to live with Mrs. Hattie Faulkner as her ward. His half-siblings Ida and William Porter (also Rebecca's children) were also identified as wards of Hattie Faulkner in the 1900 census. According to that census, the birthplace of his father and mother is unknown. Walter died in 1910, leaving a son, Lloyd Walter Bennett Sr, then age 4. Hattie died in 1911. As an adult, LWB Sr maintained that he had no relatives in New Orleans. Although in fact he had half-blood cousins in the city, there was no contact with the family, who may or may not have known of his existence. [26]
