Find A Grave contributor Don Blauvelt adds:
There is no proven surname for Ebenezer Deming's wife Sarah, let alone that it was Grant or Phelps, as in an errant 2003 compilation of the Wethersfield Wright family on the web by Albert Nye & an erroneous genealogy of the family of Samuel Grant and his wife Mary Porter, who by some are the purported in-laws of Ebenezer Deming. Nye either misread three separate 1901-1929 compilations of the Wethersfield Wrights, added the Grant surname from some undocumented reference from a member supplied genealogy to the LDS, etc.
Ebenezer and Sarah Deming were the parents of Prudence, the brief 1st wife of Dea. Thomas Wright, the maternal as well as paternal grandson of my ancestors.
Albert Nye in his errant compilation then proceeds to add nine additional children for Dea. Thomas Wright, when as verified by his own will in 1760 he had only one child by first wife Prudence and none by second wife Abigail Churchill.
In Judson Keith Deming's "Deming Geneaology" (1904), p. 14:
"EBENEZER DEMING, (son of John 1) born at Wethersfield, Conn.; died 2 May 1705, at Wethersfield; married 16 JuIy 1677 at Wethersfield, SARAH...In the record of his marriage the family name of his wife is obliterated, and it has not been discovered from any other source. In the distribution of his estate, his widow and all of his children including his two sons-in-law Talcott and Wright, are named..."
Stiles: Ancient Wethersfield, Deming, p. 274.
"FAM. 6. Ebenezer,2 (John,1), m. Sarah ____, 16 July 1677;..."
Further, in Curtis Wright's "Wright Family (1915), p. 120:
"He m. Oct. 4, 1705, Prudence, dau. of Ebenezer and Mary Deming, who died Oct. 24, 1706." Ebenezer's purported wife named Mary is a mistatement by Stiles, who later calles Ebenezer's wife as Sarah as in the above citation, and copied verbatim by Curtis Wright.
And much further, the marriage record of Ebenezer Deming to a wife named Sarah in the Wethersfield VRs is recorded as follow:
"Ebenezer, m Sarah ______, July 16, 1677."
According to the Grant family generalogy, the immigrant Matthew of Windsor being my ancestor, Sarah Grant, dau. of Samuel Grant and Mary Porter, was b. at Windsoin in 1679 and died as an infant in 1680. Thus, she could not have the wife of anyone.
