Note: 25 Apr 2014 from WarrenForsythe - genealogy125 (at)fairpoint.net This is a P.S. to my own treeposted at <u>http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=REG&db=scribnerct&id=I1969 </u> BTW at http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=blackandnob&id=I41881 and in 25 Apr 2014 email from Diane Deputy – dianedeputy (at)earthlink.net - CONCERNING Father in law of Stephen Scribner Jr (1740 CT- ): i.e. Ebenezer Allen SR (1704-1780) AND HIS CHILDREN, i.e. Deborah (Allen)Scribner born 1744 and her siblings: +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ the following set of two Fairfield Co Connecticut documents (first a short one from 1769, and then a longer one with disputed interpretationfrom 1759/60) +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 1769 [recorded 1792] Ebenezer Allen, Jr and Moses Allen of Fairfield, andStephen Scribner and Deborah his wife, and Peter Moseman and Thankful his wifeof Bedford, conveyed right in homestead of father Ebenezer Allan which belongsto us by our mother Deborah [Bennett] Allen dec'd. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Today, I looked up my original records from, “The History &Genealogy of the Families of Old Fairfield” by Donald Lines Jacobus. I hadforgotten that Mr. Jacobus had also assumed that Martha Allen was the wife ofEbenezer Allen. He was such an excellent researcher, that we shouldn’t feelbadly about reaching the same conclusion. Looking back, I remember years agoreading my records over and over, but something didn’t feel quite right, untilfinally I realized the truth! Martha was not his wife! And then Isearched until I found she was his sister! They were the only two single youngadult children of Ebenezer – except the three who were too young. Yourquote stated the same[ erroneous] conclusion Mr. Jacobus had reached, [asexplained below]: ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++=++++ Thank you for someadditional detailed information on Stephen Scribner, Jr. I am enclosing a copyof the 1759 document you mention concerning, Allen & Jenkins. Note; theactual wording of this document does NOT designate Martha Allen as Ebenezer’sfirst wife! (It was my first assumption too). Actually, the only Martha Allen Icould find was; Martha Allen, born 19 Aug 1737, the unmarried eldersister of Ebenezer Allen[Jr.], born 21 Jul 1739, both were born in Fairfield,Fairfield, CT! Evidently theirfather, Ebenezer Allen had given them a piece of his land - or else was ill atthe time and not up to conducting business. The two older children of Ebenezer& Deborah Allen were already married before 1759 – 1. Sarah Allen,born 3 Aug 1732, married abt 1756, Wm Jenkins; 2. Samuel Allen, born 10 Aug1734, married, 17 Jan 1757, Eunice Nichols; 3. Martha Allen, born 19 Aug 1737,single in 1759; 4. Ebenezer Allen, born 21 Jul 1739, single in 1759, marriedlater- 16 Feb 1764, another Sarah Allen (dau of John Allen & SarahBennett). The last three children of Ebenezer & Deborah Allen were; 5.Moses, born 27 Sep 1742; 6. Deborah Allen, born 8 Oct 1744, and 7. ThankfulAllen, born 20 Jul 1748, who were all younger and married later. (I have thisinfo, if needed) Hope this helps solve theproblem!
