Does anyone have anything on the identity of the parents of Phebe Eaton? or Hart? b. 8/1730 Reading, MA? d. 9/15/1817. This has always been a big "dead end" on my family tree. Not sure if her maiden name was Eaton or Hart, or if one of these was a first husband's last name? I checked "Vital Records of Reading, MA to the year 1850" by Baldwin 1912, but couldn't find any death records for her, although did find the marriage listing for 2/9/1757 in Reading, MA. I have looked around in Hart genealogy books and have never been able to find anything about her. Supposedly she is the 2nd wife of Joseph Hartwell who was b. 5/14/1727 in Lunenburg, MA, son of Edward Hartwell and Sara Wilder. Joseph & Phebe were m. either 1/24/1757 in Lunenburg, MA. or 2/9/1757 in Reading. Joseph d. 1807 Lunenburg, MA. His 1st wife was Tabitha Dodge. I descend from his son Benjamin Hartwell, MD b. 7/18/1759 in Lunenburg, MA. Thanks!
