Title: GEDCOM file submitted by myself ildau forsythe (at) fairpoint.net, & new data may be up&downloaded from https://familysearch.org/tree. Imported on 10 December 2015.
Note: AFN: - http://www.scribnerfamilies.org/Report-BenjaminScribner.htm says marriage and first "two" children born Norwalk CT then moved to Huntington, Suffolk Co, NY . They did not like it but given land as inducement to stay, that contract expired 1694 and they returned to Norwalk CT. The first child evidently died born 31 mar 1681 maybe also named Thomas?; REFERENCES: History and Genealogy of The Families of Old Fairfield, pg 522-523.; A History of the Scribner Family, by Edwin Monroe Scribner, bef 1832, pg. 11-14; The Scribner Family, by Joseph Scribner, Rosendale, Wisconsin, pg. 3, 15-19. The History of Ridgefield [CT]; - !CT vital records in book form , called Barbour Collection at Yakima [WA] Valley Genealogical Society library March 2014 I, Warren Forsythe, looked for Scribners of 1700s and very early 1800s in those books: (in general many of the records asserted in above Scribner genealogies just do not appear in the CT vital records compiled as above) [I searched especially records for towns lying near the path from Norwalk CT and the CT border at southeast corner of Dutchess Co. NY where John Scribner, son of Benjamin born ca 1655, removed to by 1730s] specifically Norwalk CT has some records but omits most asserted records Wilton CT was copied by me, Ridgefield CT was copied by me, New Fairfield CT records evidently not in Barbour collection under that town name, Sherman CT nor New Milford CT nor New London Ct, nor Redding CT had no Scribner/Scrivener type surnames in those vital records, Danbury CT had a couple Scribner vital records, but one before 1827; Weston-Fairfield had maybe only about one early records: 24 sep 1766 Elias Scribner md Lydia Bennett; and Milford CT had maybe only one record from 1700s: 21 June 1797 Joel Scribner md Mary Bull (or surname ~like Bull?); - !Barbour collection books of vital records of CT; Norwalk CT vital records lists a son Thos/Thomas born 31 mar 1681 the Huntington Long Isalnd NY record lists a Thomas born 12 may 1682 31 march is after the beginning of the old calendar year (Ladies Day) So we for the moment infer that the Thomas b. 1681 died before the Thomas born 1682 was born; - 2013 book Volume 11 eleven of book: Settlers of the Beekman Patent By Frank J Doherty pub. By New England Historic Genealogical Society - SEE pages 391 - 402 entitled "The Scribner Family" Extensive original documents from 1700s etc are cited and explained! ; - - Eugene Jackson's database ezrascribner at http://wc.rootsweb.com Feb2007version He cites his sources: A very accurate and comprehensive Scribner source for me was Albert Scribner of Darien, CT. Sadly, he died in the mid-1990's. Albert left an enormous legacy - 14 or so large paper charts of the Loyalist Scribners. Albert spent many years researching in the States and in NB.The charts are on file at the public library in Saint John, NB. You could visit that library and make copies, but you don't need to - I have incorporated all of his data into the Scribner file which I posted at RootsWeb.

Mary McCollough 1 July 1815 ----------------------------------- [Bourdon suggests this joseph is #1 candidate to be long-sought father William H Scribner, the NB Sea Captain, (1802-1841)--as most of the other early Scribners were shoemakers, leather manufacturers, or farmers. [Forsythe infers that]Joseph was apparently born ca 1740 son of Mary Abbott and Joseph Matthew Scribner of Norwalk CT who apparently traveled to NB 1783 on the "Union" ship. Bourdon Scribner suggests looking at any direct/indirect probate records one might find for that Joseph who died after 1814, maybe after 1822.] (--Note that I, Forsythe, sympathize with whatever difficult probate searching has already been tried; but I am just quoting the suggestions of Bourdon P. Scribner on where he suggests concentrating search effort.);
