The wife of Bushnell Benedict

Classification: Query
Surnames: Benedict, Hobart
Many postings on the Web indicate that the name of the wife of Bushnell Benedict (b. 1734) of Danbury, Connecticut, is unknown. I am happy to report that she has been identified; she was Elizabeth Hobart, daughter of Joseph Hobart of Ridgefield and Danbury. The evidence was lurking within land records in Ridgefield, in which Joseph's heirs sold their shares in certain land parcels. Bushnell Benedict and wife Elizabeth were among the sellers. I have written this up in an article that has been published in the latest issue of Connecticut Ancestry, vol. 53, no. 2 (Nov. 2010).
Merry Christmas...
