Hi, Michael -- thanks for your friendly note! I was searching for an Ebenezer Spencer in Delaware around that time and saw two with the same date of death and went hmm. But I don't claim to be an expert in the Delaware line either -- I'm branching out from an in-law. Thanks again for writing & good luck!

Hi Michael,

You might want to read through the guidelines on merging, especially When data doesn't exactly match

What do you think about merging Robinson-8706 and 8707?

Then we can add his marriage https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:Q2MT-3G3Y : 10 February 2016)

I see Harold L Spencer, co-founder ofSpencer Historical & Genealogical Society, sent you a request, the other founder was Dana R. Spencer, Died 2014, Class of 1962, R.I.T, Korea War Vet. The records of these two Spencers are impeccable, their standards of high quality. My Alma Mater also is R.I.T 1958-1962, I married a lady with Spencer Ancestry, with strong Rhode Island Family heritage. Namely the Coggeshalls & Kenyons. Do you have sources to John Coggeshall, Gov. of Rhode Island? Also, Elizabeth Coggeshall m. Peleg Spencer, the Grandfather of Rufus Spencer 1761 Coventry, R.I. - 1836 Lewis County, N.Y. Source: The Coggeshalls in America by Charles Pierce Coggeshall & Thellwell Russell Coggeshall, C.E. Goodspeed & Co., Boston 1930.
Michael, Abner Spencer Jr. 7 Feb 1777-11 Sep 1863, died Oil City, PA., m. Elizabeth Lawrence 1781-1863, their son Abner Spencer 1824-1902 m. Sarah Belle Oliver 1826-1909. Abner 1777 is 1/2 bro. to John H. Spencer 1782-1857 (source for John: Donald Lines Jacobus 64 pages Spencer Genealogy. Descend from Gerard Spencer 1614, group one dna). Do you agree? If not-please give sources. John H. Spencer in Allegany County is well documented.
Rufus Spencer 1758-1837 m. Eleanor, WILL in my possession, buried in Brookside Cemetery, Watertown, Jefferson, NY, son buried in Sherwins Bay Cemetery, Pillar Point, NY. His decendency from Michael Spencer 1611-1653 is well documented, as his children and their wives, no issue on this Rufus Spencer. Your information on Huldah who married Rufus Spencer has no merit, is not sourced, I respectfully ask you to provide sources, or remove the corrupt links. This Rufus Spencer (Sgt., Rev. War) is recorded in 1790,1800,1810 Fed Census, Arlington, VT., is husband of Huldah, parents of Jacob m. Olive Parsons, Rufus m. Cynthia Sage, & Huldah Spencer m. Stephen Eldred. Rufus Spencer 1761-1836 is sourced, Christie Genealogy, PVT., NY 5th Militia, Rev. War 1810 Fed Census, Martinsburg, Lewis, NY
Hello, Michael. Recently, I've been exploring sources for Henry Champion and related family (my ancestry traces to his daughter Mary, who married Aaron Huntley; his second wife is also an ancestor), and I've made some edits here at WikiTree. Sources identify 6 children, but WikiTree has a profile for a 7th child that I haven't seen in any records or genealogical journals -- that's the profile that you created for Love Champion - Champion-549. I've about concluded that she didn't exist, but I wonder if you know something I haven't found. Do you have information or insight about her (or about the history of this profile)? Thanks!

I believe Hanna Spencer, wife of Gerard Spencer, was born Hanna Hills based on the following:

Gerard married Hannah Joannis Hills 1, daughter of Thomas Hills, on 13 Dec 1636 in Lynn, Essex Co., MA 1. (Hannah Joannis Hills was born between 1616-1618 in Stotfold, Bedfordshire, Eng 1 and died on 22 Oct 1692 in East Haddam, Middlesex Co., CT 1.)

1. Enfield-Bryant Genealogy, (http://www.gendex.com/users/Enf_Bry/Enf_Bry/index.html (9 Sept 1998)).

Hannah's maiden name is listed as "unknown"

I have awarded you the PGM badge. Welcome to the Project. Remember that this project is all about sourcing and connecting Puritan Great Migration profiles, so please become familiar with inline sourcing.

Also, we use Robert Charles Anderson's Great Migration Series as our definitive source, unless more recent, convincing research is available. A family tree, whether from Ancestry, MyHeritage or elsewhere, is not an acceptable source. What we want is evidence. You can find a link to the list of Anderson's sources on the PGM Project page.

Please let me know if you have any questions or problems, Vic
