They moved to Woodville, Mississippi with other members of her family and a few years later moved to Rapides Parish, Louisiana, where they settled on Bayou Boeuf. They bought land and established a home south of Cheneyville, Louisiana in the area known as the Indian Land. They called their plantation Eldred Bend (later renamed to Bennettville). (Broderbund WFT Vol 6, Ed 1, Tree #2988, Date of Import: 03 Nov 1997.) General stores grew up around the country areas which became centers for purchasing all supplies which the family did not produce for itself. Drugs, clothing, flour, even pork, farm equipment, seed - all these needs and more were supplied by the country store which became a part of the lifestyle, supplying a communication center for neighboring farmers, along with everything else. Ezra Bennett's Store on a bend of the bayou settled around 1813 by Randal Eldred Jr., was such an emporium. Fragments of daybooks left from Ezra Bennett's Store on Bayou Boeuf, below Cheneyville, suggest this crossroads country store may have been a secret hideout for Governor Quitman's Cuban expedition which was planned for 1855. Most of the Boeuf migrants who lined that area of the Boeuf were from Mississippi, and undoubtedly, knew Quitman well and were sympathetic with his objectives: to save the South.
