Family of Benjamin Scribner

 

Generation No. 1

1. Benjamin1 Scribner , born abt 1658 in Fairfield, Connecticut; died  in Of, Norwalk, Fairfield, Connecticut.  He married on 5 Mar 1680 in Norwalk, Fairfield, Ct Hannah Crampton , born 1662 in , Fairfield, Ct; died aft 1704, daughter of John Crampton  and Hannah Andrews .

Notes for Benjamin Scribner     

       MARRIAGE:  From the original Town Records of Norwalk, it says:  "Benjamin Skrivener took to wiffe Hannah Crampton, daughter of John Crampton, of Norwallke, and was married the 5th of March, 1679-80." (A History of the Scribner Family, pg. 11).

       BIOGRAPHY:  We have no record of the arrival of Benjamin in America or of his ancestry in England.  He was the first of this name to settle in Norwalk.  It was there he married and had his first"two" children.  He and Hannah then moved to Huntington, Long Island where Benjamin, Jr., John, Hannah, Ruth and Joseph were born in Huntington and Lidia, Elizabeth, and Abigail were born after their return to live in Norwalk.  They were not happy living in Huntington, and were given a land grant as an inducement to stay, 23 Jun 1684,  shortly after the birth of their son John.  The offer was accepted, and they stayed on until the offer expired, in June 1694, and then returned to Norwalk where he attended a Town Meeting on 4 December 1694.

       DEATH: According to E.M. Scribner, "Benjamin died at Danbury, Conn., 15 Oct 1704, while on a visit to relatives at that point.  We have no record of his birth, but as he had been married less than twenty-five  years and his youngest child was less than three years old, he was undoubtedly less than fifty years of age at the time of his death." From the Probate Records of Fairfield, Connecticut, we find that he died intestate, leaving widow Hannah and nine children.  His son Thomas was appointed administrator of the estate in May 1705.  (A History of the Scribner Family, pg. 14).

Notes for Hannah Crampton

      Hannah Andrews must have been born about 1642, for she was married, prob. abt. 1660, to John Crampton.  She had a daughter Hannah Crampton who was born before 6 June 1662, who was mentioned along with her parents, John and Hannah Crampton in the will of that date which was written by her grand-father, Francis Andrews. (Hist. & Geneal. of Old Fairfield, pg. 18.)  This surname is often spelled Cramton as in the will of Francis Andrews.

Zaccheus and brother Uriah each have a daughter named Ruth and both of them are listed with the same husband, Daniel Whitlock.  I believe that he md. the dau/o Uriah, unless there are two men of the same name  (See A History of the Scribner Family, pg. 52)

      46         vi          Thomas4 Scribner , born abt 1755 in of, Ballston, Saratoga, New York.

He carried the first mail ever taken to Saratoga, carrying it once a week, and daily for three months in a year to Ballston - the remaining months carrying if for four days in a week. He sometimes went with a carriage, taking passengers. "Uncle Thad," as he was called, used the old fashioned "postman's horn," and when he came in hearing, "There is Uncle Thad's horn," was a common expression. He was a Revolutionary soldier, and served under Col. Marinus Willet. Born in Fairfield County, Conn., he died at Ballston in 1845.}  BIOGRAPHY: "His (Zaccheus') son Thaddeus was active in the war of the Revolution, and was the 'old mail-carrier,' known far and wide by the blast upon his horn." (History of Saratoga Co., N.Y., by Sylvester, pg. 230).   "Joel Keeler was the first postmaster in the section, and Mr. Scribner [Thaddeus] of Ballston, was the mail carrier, and the curious two-wheeled conveyance in which he used to appear every Friday is well remembered by the older people."  (Ibid, pg. 485).   "Thaddeus Scribner was the first mail-carrier in this section.  In 1821 or 1822, his route was from Ballston through Greenfield, Corinth, Hadley, Day, Edinburgh, Providence and Galway to Ballston.  He followed an old Indian trail that ran from Albany through this section, and crossed the Sacandaga and what was called Huntoon's rift."  (Ibid, pg. 456).  "The first post-office in the town was Providence P.O. located at Hagedorn's Mills, and established abt 1820.  Calvin Wheeler was the first Postmaster.  thadeus Scribner was the mail-carrier, and came once a week, on Fridays, from the North.  His route was from Ballston north to Hadley, up the Sacandago Valley to the Fish-house, then through Providence, Galway, and Milton, back to Ballston." (Ibid, pg. 497.  MILITARY: He served in the Revolutionary War as a private, in the Twelfth Albany County (N.Y.) Regiment commanded by Col.

Moses Smith, in 1815.  They had Sarah Clarinda Smith.  SOURCES: A History of the Scribner Family, pp 48, 50, 72.

      50         x          Hannah4 Scribner , born abt 1764 in of, Ballston, Saratoga, New York.  She married abt 1782 in of, , New York Jonathan Weed , born abt 1759 in of, , New York.  

13. Uriah3 Scribner  (Thomas2, Benjamin1), born 1715 in Norwalk, Connecticut.  He married in 1746 in Ridgefield, Connecticut Martha (---) , born abt 1726 in of, Ridgefield, Fairfield, Connecticut.

Notes for Uriah Scribner

       SOURCES:   According to Edwin Monroe Scribner, "A History of the Scribner Family, pg. 15" "Our only information regarding Uriah and his family was obtained from his family bible which , in 1899, was in the hands of Frederick Riley Scribner, of Bridgeport, Conn., a direct descendant of Henry, the youngest son of Uriah.  This record was written in a faded brown ink" making it difficult to read.

       The town records of Norwalk state that the settlement of Ridgefield began in 1708.  In 1713 the building of a highway from Norwalk to Ridgefield was authorized.  In 1714, inhabitants of Norwalk were freed from attending church in Norwalk, "Providing they attend in Ridgefield and continue to do so.  The town was located on a ridge of hills about fifteen miles north of Norwalk."

       BIRTHPLACES OF THE CHILDREN:   It is not known when the family made their move to Ridgefield and could have been right after the marriage, so we can not say for a certainity where the first children were born.  Edwin Monroe Scribner said that Asa was born in Ridgefield, so we assume that at least all of the children that came after Asa were born in Ridgefield.

       ERROR???:  Zaccheus and brother Uriah both have daughters named Ruth and both have been given the same husband, Daniel Whilock.

      Children of Uriah Scribner and Martha (---) were as follows:

      51         i           Esther4 Scribner , born 30 Mar 1748 in Norwalk, Fairfield, Connecticut.  She married on 21 May 1767 in Wilton, Fairfield, Connecticut Jesse Ogden , born abt 1744 in of, , Fairfield, Connecticut.

      52         ii           Ruth4 Scribner , born 1 Jan 1752 in Norwalk, Fairfield, Connecticut; died 12 Aug 1835 in Ridgebury, Connecticut.  She married (1) Henry Whitney ; (2) on 21 Nov 1771 in , , Fairfield, Connecticut Daniel Whitlock , born abt 1750 in of, , New York.   Notes:  CHILDREN: 5 Girls and 2 boys, between 1775 and 1796  (See A History of the Scribner Family, pg. 52).  ERROR? Zaccheus and brother Uriah each have a daughter named Ruth and both of them are listed with the same husband, Daniel Whitlock.  I believe that he md. the dau/o Uriah, unless there are two men of the same name  (See A History of the Scribner Family, pg. 52) [See Rin 37].

      53         iii          Martha4 Scribner , born Jan 1750 in Norwalk, Fairfield, Connecticut.

      54         iv          Uriah4 Scribner , born 29 May 1753 in Norwalk, Fairfield, Connecticut; died in of, New York City, New York.   Notes: Records of St. St. Paul's Church, Norwalk, Conn., 1886, state that he was a pew holder there in the previous century and later moved to New York city, where he became a merchant. (A History of the Scribner Family, pg. 52).

      55         v          Rebecca4 Scribner , born 2 Nov 1754 in Norwalk, Fairfield, Connecticut.  She married in 1772 in Wilton, Fairfield, Connecticut Nathan Manrow , born abt 1750 in of, , Fairfield, Connecticut.

+    56         vi          Asa4 Scribner , born 28 Oct 1757 in Ridgefield, Connecticut; died 30 Oct 1790 in Ridgefield, Connecticut.  He married Rachel Olmsted .

      57         vii         Job4 Scribner , born 9 Jul 1755 in Norwalk, Fairfield, Connecticut.   Notes:  Fought in the Revolution.  Is this the same Job who was in Westchester Co., NY? He is the only documented Job Scribner in my database, so far.   In 1790, Job Scribner and Isaac Scribner are the only Scribner's in Westchester County, making it possible that one of them is the father of Chloe Scribner.  In1790, Chloe Scribner would have been 13 years old, making it very possible that she was still living with her father, if he was alive. Of course, Enoch would have been older at this time.  Born in 1768, he would be 22 years old at this time, but of course it is still possible for him to be unmarried, and living at home. For 1790, Job Scribner has 1-3-5, meaning that Chloe Scribner could be his daughter, but Enoch Scribner could not be listed with him as his son. Isaac Scribner, on the other hand, was 2-2-5, meaning that Enoch and Chloe could both be living with him.

      58         viii        David4 Scribner , born 21 Apr 1759 in Ridgefield, Fairfield, Connecticut.   Notes:  Fought in the Revolution.

      59         ix          Ozias4 Scribner , born Mar 1761 in Ridgefield, Fairfield, Connecticut.

      60         x          Alathea4 Scribner , born 13 Oct 1762 in Ridgefield, Fairfield, Connecticut.

      61         xi          Freelove4 Scribner , born 6 Oct 1766 in Ridgefield, Fairfield, Connecticut.

      62         xii         Henry4 Scribner , born 22 Oct 1768 in Ridgefield, Fairfield, Connecticut.  

18. Hannah3 Scribner  (Thomas2, Benjamin1), born 1723 in Norwalk, Connecticut.  She married on 30 Apr 1748 in of, Ridgefield, Fairfield, Connecticut Thomas Hyatt , born 25 May 1729 in of, Ridgefield, Fairfield, Connecticut.

Notes for Hannah Scribner

       The marriage date is after the birth of the first two children.  Needs to be checked. (Hist of Ridgefield, Fairfield, Connecticut, pg. 465.)  In the reading of the original records, it appears that there was difficulty making out whether the day was the 3rd of 30.  Both dates have been used.

Notes for Thomas Hyatt

      I have two birthdates for Thomas: 10 Jan 1714 & 25 May 1729. Needs further check.

      Children of Hannah Scribner and Thomas Hyatt were as follows:

        TRIBUTE:  "The family of Matthew Scribner is of great importance and especially so in writing a Scribner genealogy.  There is no family of note who holds the name so dear to their hearts, who does not look back to this as the place that seems like home.  Here father and mother, brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts and numerous cousins seem to center as on common ground  ...... Nine children were born to the household during the next twenty years--five boys and four girls.  Men of great ambition and courage and women equally fitted to do their part in founding this great republic.  There was much to be done, many trials to be borne, many difficulties to overcome; but through it all they came off as conquerors, ans well deserve the honors that were gladly given them." (The Scribner Family, pg 19).

       MARRIAGE: Have seen both Huntington, Long Island and Norwalk, Conn. as the place of the marriage.  Edwin Monroe Scribner  said Matthew md. Martha Smith at Norwalk, so we will leave it that way for now.

Notes for Martha Smith

       BIRTH:  "A History of the Scribner Family," pg. 50, states she was born 1726 and died 11 Mar 1813, ae 93.  If this age is correct, she would have been born in 1720, and thus I have entered this earlier date into my files.

Notes for Abraham Scribner

       MARRIAGE: Abraham md. Sarah Dean of Huntington, Long Island.  Their marriage took place at Huntington where Abraham's father, Benjamin (b. 1682), a weaver by trade, and his wife Abigail, were living before they moved to Norwalk, Conn. (Rendezvous at Racine, by Ralph M. Colburn, 1980, pg. 132).

       CHILDREN: Their children were prob. all born in Norwalk, for they were still living in Norwalk during the seige of Norwalk during the Revolutionary War.  There were eleven children recorded in Norwalk, and most stop with these eleven.  However, there was a statement made by Abraham's youngest daughter, Esther, that her brother, Platt, was reported to have been the first white child born in Plattsburg, New York. (Rendezvous at Racine, pg. 132).  Have not seen where or when Abraham and Sarah moved to Plattsburg.

      Children of Abraham Scribner and Sarah Dean were as follows:

      77         i           Abraham4 Scribner , born 28 Jun 1745 in <Huntington, Suffolk, Long Island, New York>.   Notes:  A History of the Scribner Family, pg. 54, and 59, reports that Abraham married and had a son John of Danbury, CT.  He md. Abigail Stevens and had a will dated 27 May 1841 which was probated 25 Mar 1842.  He died early in 1842 at Danbury. The following children were given as william Smith Scribner, Samuel T., Abraham Stevens, David L., George B. and Henry N.  The widow Abigail, later moved to New York City where she made her home with her son, Abraham Stevens Scribner.  Among the witnesses was John Scribner, 2nd.

Cleveland and then into Wisconsin.  CHILDREN: Four children listed, the first being Daniel , b. 1795, New Canaan, Conn.  SOURCES: A History of the Scribner Family, pg. 51.

Notes for Joseph Scribner

From an affadavit from around the Revolution:

Doctor Punderson had one horse pastured there from ye first of May untill ye 22nd July, also a pair of oxen belonging to John Jones and Joseph Scribner of Winthrops Patent. And a Maire and Colt from the old mans that he Dont know the oners Name."

Adjudent E. Marvin's Evidence._The evidence of Ephraim Marvin Adjuent in the mint service vs Sundry Persons._Ephiraim Marvin, Adjt. Being Sworn Deposeth that being sent by the Committee to Rockaway, to see whose guns were taken on board the vessel of Nathan Gyer, and to apprehend Capt. Jonathan Baker & others, and give orders to have them apprehend if found there hereafter, he the Deponant on his way saw the horse of sd. Baker tied behind the house of Daniel Hart, and being alone & fearing sd. Hart would resqui sd Baker from him , he proceeded forward until he came to the Riflemen at Rockaway, who let him go on board the vessel that they took with Nathan Gyer, Lazarus Gyer & Ebenezer Scribner on board, and they shewd him a number of guns they took on board sd vessel, among which they saw the guns belonging to & used lately by sd Baker & Fountain, also the guns of Eliakim Jones & Joseph Scribner, and Sundry other guns, one amongst them yt he did not know was a Holland gun with the upper side of the barrel flat from ye lock to near the muzzle, and another that was a short musket with a Brass round the stock below the lock.And that with three Riflemen, he went in persuit of sd Baker & coming near the house of James Morris, he saw sd Baker start from the fore door & ran he supposeth through the house, and from the back door northward twoard the woods, but was stopped by the Rifel Sergeant, who threatened to shoot him, if he did not restore himself up a prisoner, and the said Deponant saith that from the best circumstances he could learn sd Baker & Fountain and all the others above named had been on board the vessel of Nathan Gyer, in her to have a passage to the ships of war in the Ministerial Service._

He could be the Joseph Scribner who was a Loyalist.

37. Elias3 Scribner  (Joseph2, Benjamin1), born abt 1730 in Norwalk, Connecticut; died 1775 in Brookhaven, Suffolk, New York.  He married in Fairfield, Connecticut Elizabeth Davis .

Notes for Elias Scribner

Because this branch of the family were Loyalists, it is certain that Chloe Scribner, whose brothers fought in the Revolution, could not be a descendant of Elias Scribner. 

      In the abstract of wills in the collection of the New York Historical Society for the year 1899: Page 26

In the name of God , Amen. I , Elias Scribner, of the town of Brookhaven, in Suffolk County,"cordwinder",being sick and weak. All debts to be paid.

Obit in newspaper: On Tuesday morning, the 14th inst at the residence of Mr John W. Scott, in the full assurance of blessed immortality, aged 77 years, Mr Thaddeus Scribner. He came to this province with the first Loyalists in the year 1783 and settled in Kingston, (K.C.) and was an honest, loyal and respectable man. He leaves a widow and very large family together with a numerous circle of acquainances to deplore his bereavement.

      Five Scribners, all from Norwalk, Connecticut settled in New Brunswick in 1783 according to Sabine. They came on the ship Union. Hezekiah with his wife, Elias with his wife and five children,Thaddeus, Joseph and Thomas were grantees of Saint John. Another name that of Ebenezer appears on the plan of grants. Hezehkiah Scribner died in Saint John in 1860, age 60. Thomas in 1837 aged 77.

Notes for Samuel Scribner

      Not in the 1763 census of Westchester, but Chloe is born by 1777, so he must have been married between those dates.

      Also, not in the Westchester 1790 census.

      In the History of Westchester Co., NY, Vol II, by J. Thomas Scharf, (1886), pg. 506: "On the 15th of April, 1771, Samuel Scribner purchased 3/4 of an acre of land in Delanceytown, between the lots of Delancy and Jacob Mead."  (Delanceytown is now part of North Salem).  It sounds to me that he was planning on using this for a house lot, for that 3/4 of an acre probably would be too small to have much of a farm.

      He is the youngest son, he might be younger that the girls, which means he could be much younger.  Perhaps he was born as late as 1740, meaning that Chloe's date of birth of 1777 is not out of the question.

      Samuel Scribner m. Sally Grummon, 3 Feb 1816, Church of Christ, Salem, Westchester, NY.

      North Salem, township (1990 pop. 4,725), NE Westchester co., SE N.Y., 50 mi/80 km N of Manhattan; 41░20'N 73░35'W. Acknowledged as one of the most beautiful and underdeveloped areas in N.Y. city┐s metropolitan area, its tranquility is now being threatened by rapid growth. After decades of litigation, the zoning laws here have been changed, resulting in new homes and sub-divisions. Open fields and rugged hills surrounding Titicus Reservoir; horseback riding is popular, as is the raising of horses for hunting and jumping. DeLancey Town Hall, a restored 18th-cent. Georgian manor, is on the Natl. Register of Historic Places; mus., Jap. Stroll Garden also here. Along Titicus Road, there is a 60-ton/54┐metric ton granite glacial erratic which has inspired a great deal of media attention and scientific speculation.

Notes for Asa Scribner

       Fought in the Revolution with his brothers Job and David, together with his uncles Thomas and Zaccheus, brothers of his father.  He enlisted at the first call, 8 May 1775, joining the first company raised in Ridgefield.  Being but 18 years of age he was appointed a teamster in the commissary department.  The fact that he was a blacksmith by trade probably had some influence on the appointment.  He served in the company of Captain Matthew Mead in the First Regiment, under Col. David Waterbury, the first regiment formed on the first call for troops.  He was discharged 13 Dec. 1775, his term of enlistment having expired.  During 1776, he was a member of the Ridgefield Company under Capt. Gamaliel Northrup, serving in the defense of the state, and on 1 Mar 1777, he again enlisted for three years under Capt. Samuel Hait in the Fifth Regiment Connecticut Line, under Col. Philip Burr Bradley, until his discharge 28 Feb 1780.  (History of Ridgefield, pg. 188).

     

       DEATH: aged 33 years.  His grave is unmarked and has not been located, but it is felt he was definitely buried in Ridgefield. (History of Ridgefield, pg. 410).

      Children of Asa Scribner and Rachel Olmsted were as follows:

+    122       i           Lucretia5 Scribner , born 1 Jun 1779 in Ridgefield, Fairfield, Connecticut; died 8 Mar 1801.  She married Roger Olmsted .

      123       ii           Marcy5 Scribner , born 31 Dec 1782 in Ridgefield, Fairfield, Connecticut.   Notes:  QUESTION?  Did Asa and Rachel Scribner have two or three children?  In some references it say they had a daughter Lucretia and a son, Harvey, b 31 Dec 1783. (This seems to be a fact -- See notes under Harvey).   In some, she had a daughter  Lucretia and a daughter Marcy, b 31 Dec 1782, (IGI).  Are Harvey and Marcy really the same person or two distinct individuals?  Or was there an error made by someone reading from the original records?  This needs to be proven.

+    124       iii          Harvey5 Scribner , born 31 Dec 1783 in Ridgefield, Fairfield, Connecticut; died 17 Mar 1861 in Homer, Licking, Ohio.  He married Lydia Jelliff .

Notes for Capt. Nathaniel Scribner

      He could have moved to Putnam County.

       BIOGRAPHY:  Following his marraige, instead of building his home in Norwalk, Conn., they moved to the town of  South East, Putnam County, New York, where they bought a farm in an area near a church called Kent's parish, named for the minister, Rev. Elisha Kent who had preached for some time there.  At the close of the war, he and his family moved back to Norwalk where he built and operated a mill for a short time, before selling it and moving to Compo, long Island Sound, and then on to Milford where he suffered great losses.  At the age of 56, he started out alone on a trip to Georgia (Hist. of Scribner Family says he went to South America) to investigate the possibility of starting another business enterprise, but fell victim of a severe fever and died there among strangers.  (The Scribner Family, pg. 19-21).

       MILITARY: During the war, Nathaniel sided with the colonies, and was commissioned a Lieutenant, 15 Mar 1776, and a few months later was promoted to Captain.  Unfortunately, he was very soon wounded in the arm, which disabled him from work in the regular army, but he was stationed with his company at the borders of the "Neutral Ground" not far from his home. (The Scribner Family, by Joseph Scribner, pg. 20).

       PARENTAGE: Dau/o Epenetus, son/o Daniel Kellogg who settled in Norwalk in 1655 and died in that town in 1688. (The Scribner Family, pg. 19).  (Epenetus is not listed in the family of Daniel Kellogg in "Families of Old Fairfield, pg. 357-358).

       BIOGRAPHY:  Following the death of her fifty-six year old husband, and with 13 children to raise, Phebe carried on by herself.  A few years after her death, Mrs. Scribner and three of her daughters opened a school for girls at Morristown, N.J. in which they were eminently successful, but this did not satisfy her greatest desire, that of securing a place where she could bring her entire family together.  In the fall of 1812, her sons, Joel, Nathaniel and Abner rode on horseback across the state of Kentucky to the Ohio River, about six hundred miles below Pittsburg, PA, and across the river from Louisville, KY, and selected the land in Indiana on which the town of New Albany was to be built. (In 1995, there were over 36,000 residents in New Albany, accdg. to AAA Road Atlas of that year).  The building of the city was a family affair.  By the close of 1816, seven of the nine living  children and their Mother were there together, united as a family.  Phebe lived for twelve years more and "dispensed her old time hospitality, and with three of her family, organized the First Presbyterian Church of four members,  and a school since known as the "Scribner High School.  She also commenced a system of religious effort which laid the foundation of a moral and educated society."  (The Scribner Family, pg. 20-22).

       DEATH: Phebe died 25 Sep 1827, at the age of seventy-nine years.

Notes for Rev. Matthew Scribner

       TRIBUTE: "The notable thing in his life was his effort to secure a liberal education.  We take it for granted that he was well stocked with perserverance to have the courage for so great an undertaking and having once commenced would not easily give up.  His main reliance was with himself and he tookadvantage of the opportunity of becoming a member of a literary society in Elizabethtown, N. J., where he lived until he was ready to enter college.  This society, when he left, gave him a certificate, 7 Oct 1771, of good character.  He entered Yale College from which he graduated with the class of 1775.  He was ordained and installed as a Congregational Clergyman at Westford, Middlesex County, Mass., 5 Oct 1779." ("The Scribner Family," pg. 22).

       PASTORATE:  After being installed in 1779, he stayed in Westport for a few years, but became very diheartened and diiscontent and resigned 10 Nov 1789.  He soon moved to the adjoining town of Tyngsboro, Mass., where he resided until his death.  The church and community took this very seriously and formed a committee to try and take care of the problems causing the discontent.  A council of representatives of seven neighboring towns, met and advised him to stay at his post.  However,on 12 Jan 1789/80,  the town voted instead to pay him his back salary of 250 pounds and help to correct the other points of discontent that he had.  This was done, and he stayed on, and "socially and religiously, he maintained his connection to the end with the people of Westford." (The Scribner Family, pg. 22-23).

       DEATH: Lived on his farm in Tyngsboro until his death in 1813, at age 67.(The Scribner Family, pg. 23).

      Her date of death could be 16 July 1843.

      Children of Enoch Scribner and Mary Miller were as follows:

      191       i           Joseph Miller5 Scribner Dr. , born 11 May 1793 in Tarrytown, Westchester, New York; died 27 Dec 1847.   Notes: Named after his grandfather, Joseph Miller, so be became Joseph Miller Scribner. 1830 US Census, Westchester Country, Mt.

Notes for Chloe Scribner

bullet

1829 New York City Directory, Thomas Furman, cartman, 103 Delancey

bullet

1829 New York City Directory, James W. Scribner, cartman, 103 Delancey

bullet

Chloe Scribner named her only son Samuel, so it makes sense that her father's name was Samuel, because her husband Thomas Furman does not have the name Samuel in his family.

bullet

Listed in M.E. Church Records, v. 75, Member 1819, Chloe Firman, so she must have been a member of the Methodist Church, the same church as Samuel Furman, Mary Eastwood, and James Eastwood.

bullet

New York City Death Records: Cloey Furman, 19 July 1832, Delancey Street, age 65, born New York, cholera, Allen St. Methodist Church, F. Chandler.

      Minnie Card Schult (daughter of William L. Card, granddaughter of Rev. William H. Card and Cornelia Cairns and greatgranddaughter of Deborah Furman and John Cairns, Jr., wrote as follows:  "our great grandmother Cairns' mother was a Scribner.  Died of Cholera at fifty years of age.  Her father and brothers fought in the Revolution (their name was Scribner).  One brother's name was Enoch Scribner .... Grandma Cairns' uncle was a farmer.  Had a peach orchard near Bedford.

      From Anne Davis:  Can you tell me who the parents are of Enoch Scribner b. 1768, d 20 Jul 1861?  Was he a descendant of Joseph Scribner, b. Sep 1692, of Pound Ridge, Westchester, NY?  He md. Mary Miller, and her family earlier had also been at Pound Ridge.

      In the History of Westchester Co., NY, Vol II, by J. Thomas Scharf, (1886), pg. 506: "On the 15th of April, 1771, Samuel Scribner purchased 3/4 of an acre of land in Delanceytown, between the lots of Delancy and Jacob Mead."  (Delanceytown is now part of North Salem).  It sounds to me that he was planning on using this for a house lot, for that 3/4 of an acre probably would be too small to have much of a farm.

Notes for George Scribner

       BIOGRAPHY: With his father's health so poor, George continued to live with his father and mother for a number of years and it is believed that this delayed his marriage until 1816.  They then continued to live in the old Enoch Scribner home at Southport, nr. Norwalk, Conn., until he died 11 Oct 1841, age 58 years and 7 months.  [The age on his stone does not agree with the dates of birth and death.  If born in 1788 and d. in 1841, he would have been 53 years old.  This could be an engraving error, or a reading error since 3 and 8 are so much alike]. The children and their families all eventually moved to Rosendale, Wisconsin, with their cousins. (A History of the Scribner Family, pg 58)(The Scribner Family, pp 23, 26-27, 46.

Since Mary Furman is not in the 1829 NYC directory, she has either died, remarried, or moved out of the city before the year 1829.

It is very strange that with three daughters, Mary Furman does not have one named Rachel or Chloe.

This will ruin my previous research, but it is possible that she is the Maria Hoffman who is the daughter of Tobias Hoffman, and who was born in 1794.  They actually had two daughters named Maria.
