Notes

Note: From a Raymond Wing web page (http://www.uftree.com/UFT/WebPages/RaymondWing/WINGDESC/)
He married three times. He married Content Tucker in Dartmouth, Bristol Co., Massachusetts, 18 October 1722. Benjamin Wing, s. Matthu of D., and Content Tucker, d. Abraham of D., 18th, 8 mo., "called October," 1722, C.R.3.(8948) Content was born in Dartmouth, Bristol Co., Massachusetts 1st month, 12, 1695.(8949) Content was the daughter of Abraham Tucker and Hannah Mott.
He married Rhoda Rogers in Pembroke, Plymouth, MA, 19 October 1738.(8950) Rhoda was born in Marshfield, Plymouth Co., Massachusetts 25 May 1713.(8951) Rhoda was the daughter of Thomas Rogers and Bethia Ewell. Rhoda died 21 April 1758 at 44 years of age.(8952)
He married Mary Devol Potter in Dartmouth, Bristol Co., Massachusetts, 6 DEC 1764. Benjamin Wing, s. Mathew and Elisabeth both dec'd of D., and Mary Potter, wid. Nathaniel of D., 6th 12 mo. 1764, C.R.3.(8953) Mary was born in Dartmouth, Bristol Co., Massachusetts 3 APR 1705.(8954) Mary was the daughter of Joseph Devol and Mary Soule. Mary died 5th 11 mo. 1798 in Westport, Bristol, MA, at 93 years of age.(8955)
Conflicting evidence states that Benjamin was born in Dartmouth, Bristol Co., Massachusetts, Feb. 1, 1698[/9]. Like his parents, Benjamin was a member of the Apponnegansett Meeting [of Friends].(8956)
He resided in Dartmouth, Bristol Co., Massachusetts Westport. The house created by Benjamin Wing upon his farm in Westport was standing up to about the year of 1898. Mrs. Sophia WIng Pettey, who had always lived near the old house, wrote in 1903, "As a child I heard that after the house was raised and boarded that on account of war it was left; that the builders went away, where I never learned, and when they returned, rees had grown up to the rafters, probably on the lower side." This abandonment might have occurred during the Revolutionary War when the British were operating in the vicinity of Newport and Dartmouth. There is now standing in the vicinity of the old house a pear tree more than 150 years old and still in bearing condition.(8957)
Conflicting evidence states that he died in Dartmouth, Bristol Co., Massachusetts, possibly in 1771. In the stone wall, near the front of the house, is a large flat stone serving as a stile. In it is a deeply cut "B.W.--1771," none other than young Benjamin Wing, who with Joseph, were his only two sons. This may have been his gravestone.(8958)
