Thanks Liz,
My guess is that Phoebe (b1750-1760)is more likely to be the sister of Permenus rather than his daughter. I say this only by guessing at Permenus's age based upon his wife. The two Sears girls (one who married Permenus)were born in the 1750-1765 timeframe. Of course he could have been somewhat older and Phoebe could have been the child of a previous marriage.

An interesting sidelight of the land transfer you mention (book 34 p 509)is that in addition to being ajacent to land of PARMENAS PILKINTON, it also joined land of JON SPINDLE. After the death of Edward Sears, his widow, Mary Barbee Sears married John E. Spindle, son of John Spindle. If all of these are the people we think they are, it appears that Permenus owned land very close or ajacent to his step father-in-law, or step grandfather-in-law. The plot never stops thickening!
