Bement and related families
Posted by: Peggy Cotton Date: October 08, 1998 at 10:21:44

Am researching ancestors of Rachel Bement b. 1742 at Northfield, MA and d. 23 Dec 1814 at Whatley, MA. She m. Jeremiah Wait. Her parents were John Bement IV and Rachel Wright, daughter of Benjamin Wright, Jr. and Hannah Stebbins.

Have a lot of information to share re Bement, Wait, Wright, Eggleston, and Dennis families.

Need information on following related families: Kelsey, Scarlett, (Rea?) and Stebbins.

Specific needs:
1. Parents of Hannah Stebbins b. 1707, d. 19 Jan 1731/2 at Northfield, MA. She m. Benjamin Wright, JR.

2. Name of wife of Bygod Eggleston, the immigrant.

3. Parents of Sarah ----, wife of Edward Dennis (she m. 2nd to Abner Ordway). Edward was in Boston in 1636.

4. Parents of Jane Scarlett, who d. 1650 in Plymouth, MA. She m. Wm. Dennis, who d. 1656 at Plymouth, MA.

5. Need name of wife of John Bement I, who b. 1612 in England, d. 1647 at Salem, MA. Was her last name Rea ?

6. Was Esther Kelsey name of wife of James Eggleston, father of Abigail Eggleston, who m. John Bement III? Was father of Esther named William? If this line is correct, need much more information re this family.

Any help appreciated very much.
