Ebenezer Berry

Birth Name Ebenezer Berry
Gender male
Age at Death more than about 47 years


I am not yet sure of Ebenezer's father, although I have listed him as the son of Jehiel Berry and Susannah Swift.

When Ebenezer was born, there were three men in the area that would become Malone, NY: Jehiel, his brother Ebenezer, and their cousin Barnabas.

1) Ebenezer's children are listed in a biography of his son [another] Jehiel. According to that account, the elder Ebenezer did not have any sons named after himself.

2) Barnabas was older than his two cousins, married earlier, and has no sons on the 1810 census young enough to be our Ebenezer (who married Huldah Jillson). Five of his children are known, and none are named Ebenezer.

3) Jehiel does have sons in 1810 young enough for one of them to be the younger Ebenezer. Also on the 1830 Census, Jehiel and Ebenezer II are listed together. There were other Berrys listed on the same page, but not with them. The names were listed by first letter of the surname, then grouped by surname. It is possible that this list implies that Jehiel and Ebenezer II were father and son.

I have not yet located the birth records of the First Congregational Church in Malone, NY, which might include the birth of Ebenezer and other Berrys from the first years of Malone. Places to try: local genealogy society, and the church.

recorded on the line after the elder Jehiel Berry. Note: calling someone Ebenezer "the second" does not necessarily mean that his father was named Ebenezer. At this time in the US, "the second" was used to distinguish one man from another man by the same name in the same area. In other words, there was another Ebenezer Berry nearby, but not necessarily the father of this Ebenezer.
