BEERS, Abijah

Classification: Query
I am looking for information on Abijah BEERS who was born probably in Connecticut and married 1. Sabra REDFIELD of Saybrook, CT. She was married 1. Hezekiah Post who died and then she married Abijah and all the information I have is that she died soon after the marriage and probably childless. Abijah then married Mary (Molly), I believe her last name was Smith. I think they were married in Ballston, Saratoga, New York. I believe that the first daughter who was named Sabra Redfield Beers was the daughter of Abijah and Molly and named after his first wife, but can't find any proof of this assumption at this time (10/2001). It was a common practice in those days to name the first daughter of a second marriage after the first wife. Sabra Redfield Beers married Benjamin Puffer. Am interested in contacting anyone who might have some information on this line. I need the death of Sabra and the marriage of Abijah and Mary. Thanks for any help,

Abijah was born 11 Jan 1771. His place of birth is conjectured to be either in Connecticut or in Ballston, Saratoga, New York. I have been unable to find any record of his birth or christening. I have no further information on his spouse, Mary/Molly Smith.

By chance does your Beers book have anything on an Abigail Beers born abt. 1783 in South Salem, NY area or perhaps Norwich, Conn.? She married a John Hoit/Hoyt/Haight or something simular.

Thank you.

I have all three Abijah Beers'. The first Abijah b. April 7, 1756 d. June 26, 1784 son of Nathan Beers (wife: Lydia Hawley). Abijah's wife Sarah Baldwin. These are all life time residence of Norwalk, Fairfield County, Connecticut.

The second Abijah Beers is a nephew to Abijah (1), his brother, Ebenezer's second wife, Ann Hard has eight children, son #2 they have is Abijah b. January 9, 1785 d. August 30, 1829, married Abigail Bennett (1785-1853). Again, all life time residence of NEWTOWN, Fairfield County, Connecticut.

The third Abijah is brother to Joseph C Beers, who is a stone mason by trade. Joseph birthdate 1804, Minisink, Orange County, New York. Im not sure of Abijahs birthday, but he is the youngest of five children, and I would look around the year of 1815. Probably in Cortland County New York or states southward.

Hope this help you.
