Eliza Peabody, dtr. Andrew & Mary (Morse) Peabody of MA
Posted by: J B Peabody (ID *****5812) Date: October 07, 2005 at 08:23:37

I'm trying to settle some conflicting information regarding Eliza's marriage(s). Does anyone have proof of this particular Eliza's marriage? She was born in the Bradford/Haverhill area of MA c1802/03, 6th child of Andrew & Mary/Molly (Morse) Peabody.

Old Peabody genealogy (S.H. Peabody, pp 48-49) shows her married first to "__ Andrews" (a common name in her area), and second to "Noah Newell." I can't find proof of either, so far.

Bradford VR (p.257) shows an Eliza Peabody married to "Enoch Allen of Manchester" on 17 Dec 1828. That Eliza's death date (1833 at Bradford "while visiting her parents") & age at death (30) add back to a correct birth year. No parents' names are given.

Unproven source shows Eliza Peabody married first to "Mills DeForrest Andross" in 1822 in Bradford VT, and second to "Noah Newell" in 1828. This source has her birthdate as 24 Sep 1802 at Bradford MA and her death in Chicago in 1886.

Does anyone know the truth?
Thanks in advance,
J B Peabody
