Reuben Wing was born on 11 Aug 1775, the son of Reuben Wing and Priscilla (Unknown) Wing. His birth was recorded after his parents moved to Livermore, Maine (then in Massachusetts), which probably occurred sometime in the 1790s. His place of birth is unknown, but it was most likely somewhere in Maine; a FamilySearch profile says he was born at Wayne, Maine, and it cites five sources, but none of those sources say that he was born in Wayne.
Reuben Wing died on 9 Dec 1851 and is buried at West Peru, Mainel see the Research Note below.
Two sources agree that Reuben Wing died on 9 Dec 1851 at age 76 and is buried in West Peru Maine. The record from the Faylene Hutton Cemetery Collection says that he is buried with his wife, Lois E. (1810-1890) and several of their children. The record from the Nathan Hale Cemetery Collection mentions only a wife Joanna Landers and 12 of "their children."
A FindAGrave memorial, with no photo and citing no sources, agrees with the two previously cited sources on the date of death, but it lists three children for Reuben and Joanna (Landers) Wing and says that Reuben then married Sally Robinson in 1812 and lists eight children for them. A modern gravestone at Wayne, Maine, for his father and his family says that the elder Reuben Wing married a Sally Robinson, as his second wife, and with her had one child. A Reuben Wing did marry a Sally Robinson in Maine (then in Massachusetts) in 1812, on May 24, and the marriage is recorded (with the same date) both at Wayne and Winthrop. There may have been two Sally Robinsons who married the Reuben Wings, father and son, but it is more likely that one of the sources simply got it wrong.
The Family Search profile referenced above gives Reuben Wing two more wives, a Cordelia Landross and a Hannah Burgess, but it cites no sources for either, and no evidence has been found for eiither.
A 1919 genealogy says that a granddaughter of Reuben Wing knew her grandmother personally, and her name was Huldah Burgess.
In conclusion: Joanna (Landers) Wing is the only wife for whom solid documentary evidence exists, but there may have been others.
