Faye/Elizabeth PittmanAn "Elizabeth Bennett" was listed on Damon's death certificate as his wife.
Elizabeth Faye Tate Pittman Bennett
According to this resource, Descendants of Nicholas Vieillar, she was previously married to Kenneth Raymond Pittman. According to earlier research by Cece's sister, LaRue Fisher, she had two sons, Danny A. Pittman, b. 13 Dec 1955, and Douglas R. Pittman, b. 3 Sep 1957.
Interestingly, although Damon and Elizabeth weren't directly related, it seems that he and her former husband's sons (it's not clear if they were her sons) may have been.
Comparing Cece's line and the (step?) sons of Elizabeth Faye Tate Pittman Bennett, we have:
Danny A. & Douglas R. Pittman -> Kenneth Raymond Pittman (1)-> Albert H. Pittman (2)-> Daniel R. Pittman (3)-> Harrison Pittman (4)-> George Pittman (5)-> James Pittman and Rachel McGrew
Cecelia Bennett Linder -> Damon Bennett (1)-> Samuel Bennett (2)-> William H. Bennett (3)-> Harrison Bennett (4)-> William M. & Rebecca Pittman Bennett (5)-> James Pittman and Rachel McGrew
So, if the above relationships are accurate, Cece and Danny A. & Douglas R. Pittman are 5th cousins.
