Ebenezer Ferrin and Lydia Phelps

HUSBAND:
Ebenezer FERRIN.
Born on 4 September 1777, said to be at Hebron by some, but undoubtedly he was born at Weare, Grafton County, New Hampshire where his family was living at the time of his birth. He is the son of Enos FERRIN and Mary CURRIER.

In 1779 his family moved to Alexandria, New Hampshire. In 1798 they moved to Hebron, Grafton County, New Hampshire.

He married Lydia PHELPS on 26 November 1801 at Hebron, Grafton County, New Hampshire. They were married by Rev. Thomas Page.

In 1802 he received a deed from his father Enos for land in Hebron, near his brother Aaron. This was evidently on the East Hebron shore of Newfound Lake and likely part of his father's farm. However, he must have already owned land in 1799, since he appears on the Hebron tax list in 1799. He is on the tax lists until 1809. He is not on the lists in 1810 and 1811. Deed records show that for those two years he had sold his land in Hebron and moved to Orange, New York. He then sold the land in New York and moved back to Hebron. He reappears on the Hebron tax lists again from 1812 until 1815.

They then sold their land again in Hebron in 1815, and started in the fall by oxcart for New York. He first settled in Sardinia, near Concord (which is now Springville), Erie County, New York. They appear on the 1830 Federal Census in Sardinia. Western New York at the time was called The Burned Over District. {S2}.

Sometime before the 1840 Census they had moved a little further westward to Concord, New York, which is located near the village of Springfield. They were among the first settlers at Concord. He cleared a farm there, which was designated on the land records as Lot 52, range 6, township 7. He lived there until his death, which occurred on 9 MAR (1851-S3)(1852-S1) at Concord, Erie County, New York.
