Biography

Benjamin was a Friend (Quaker)

Benjamin Wing's birth was recorded as 29d 9m 1748 [29 Nov 1748] by the Oblong monthly meeting in Dutchess County, New York.[1] He was the son of Abraham and Anstes Wing.[1] On 24d 12m 1766 [24 Dec 1766], he married Thankful Lockwood, daughter of Caleb and Mersey Lockwood, at Oblong.[1]
