Am looking for descendants of this man. He is Peter-5 Blackman (Ebenezer4-3, John2, Rev. Adam1), b. Ripton (a "back parish" of Stratford), Fairfield Co., Conn. 23 June 1735 (but his birth was rec. years later at Winchester, Litchfield Co., Conn., where he lived many years). This Peter was son of Ebenezer [Jr.] and Mehitable (Adams) Blackman. He m. (rec. Winchester, Conn.) 19 April 1760 Mary McEwen (or McCune), dau. of Robert McEwen of Stratford. Here are Peter and Mary's children:
Abigail Blackman, b. Winchester 28 Sept. 1761, prob. living Oneida Co., N.Y. 1800; m. Winchester 2 Dec. 1784 Justus Wright, who was in Oneida Co. in 1800.
Peter Blackman was received into the South Britain church from Roxbury, Conn. 3 Dec. 1770, by letter. He joined the Winchester church in 1777, and was assessed 8 shillings, 2-1/2 pence towards the minister's salary in 1777. In a Winchester tax list of 1783 he was assessed at 40 pounds, 3 shillings.
John Boyd, in Annals of Winchester (1873), p. 131, places Peter Blackman's removal from Winchester to Sangersfield, Oneida Co., N.Y., at ca. 1793-94. In the 1800 census he appears in Oneida Co., N.Y., with a household of two males 16-26, one male 26-45, one 45+ (Peter himself), one female 26-45, and one female 45+. Did Peter ever die, or leave probate or significant deeds anywhere?
Note: Don't confuse this Peter Blackman (1735-1800+), husband of Mary McEwen, with Peter-5 Blackman (c1725-by 1780; John-4, Joseph-3, John-2, Rev. Adam-1) of Westport, Conn., husband of Abigail Beers (d. 1792). They are only distantly related.
