Sheldon Beeman/Bement of Kent, CT 1774

In case this has come up for anyone....there is a line of Bements in CT who may NOT be part of your main Bement lines and may confuse someone: Sheldon BEEMAN, b. Feb 5, 1774 in Kent, CT (son of Friend Beeman/ Thomas Jr/ Thomas Beeman & Phoebe Parke) decided at some time in his young adulthood to change his name to BEMENT. (It is not known why he did this, but it may account for some extra Bement lines in CT!) His children were: Mary, John Sheldon and David Bement, born 1810 to 1813.
If anyone feels that one of these might be a missing ancestor, please contact me.... I do not have any additional BEMENT info, but I do BEEMAN research and can give much info on any descendants of Thomas and Phoebe of Kent.
