The Ebenezer in our family was born somewhere between 1836 and 1843 - June 10th. It has been listed in our family records that our Ebenezer was retarded. I have no information on him as to a death date, whether married or not, etc. How reliable this information is, I don't know. He could have moved away to another state, or died young, or never married if he was indeed "retarded" as they listed things in those days. I would like to know what became of him. He was the son of Jeptha Purvis and Cassie Bonnell.
