Ambrose Bemont, son of Meakins Bemont's, married Lovisa Allen on October 9, 1800 in East Hartford, CT. Ambrose was born March 8, 1777 in East Hartford, CT and Lovisa was born February 1, 1782. Lovisa was the daughter of Othniel & Phebe Roise Allen. Othniel was a Revolutionary War Veteran. He served in the 2nd Regiment of the Connecticut Line from January 1777 until his discharge in January 1780. Othniel married Phebe Roise in Charlestown, New Hampshire on July 12, 1781. Othniel was born February 22, 1758 and died December 15, 1822. Phebe, born January 29, 1761, was the daughter of Jonathan Roise. She had sisters Amarillis and Grypherra. She died after 1843 and before 1850.

Ambrose and Lovisa Allen Bemont had the following children:

Mary Bemont, born August 14, 1802
Leonard Bemont, born May 16, 1804
Louisa Bemont, born September 16, 1806
Sallyann Bemont, born October 10, 1808
Mariah Bemont, born March 25, 1811
Delia Bemont, born July 1, 1813
Julia Bemont, born April 12, 1816
Jane Bemont, born August 21, 1819

Mary Bemont married Andrew Henry Dewar on March 1, 1826. She and Andrew moved to New York by 1830. In 1832, they (including sons Henry B. & William Ambrose) moved to northern Cumberland County, NC. In 1855 the section of Cumberland County in which they lived became part of the newly formed Harnett County. Most of the Dewars living today in the central part of North Carolina are descendants of this family.

Other than the paragraph immediately above, all the information comes from the Othniel & Phebe Allen pension papers.
