Marriage*4 May 1870He married Laura Cordelia Conger, daughter of Lucien West Conger and Elizabeth Everett Brown, on 4 May 1870.2
(Son-in-Law) Census 187011 June 1870Alexander Russell Webb appeared on the 1870 census taken on 11 June 1870 in the household of his parents-in-law Lucien West Conger and Elizabeth Conger in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois. Lucien was 46 and his occupation was Jeweler. The value of his real estate was recorded as $12,000 and his personal estate as $15,000. Elizabeth was 43 and keeping house. Included in the household were the couple's 14-year-old son Clarence LaForest Conger, recorded as "C. La Fay Conger", who was at school, and Edith B. Conger, believed to have been a relative and not yet identified, age 9 and born in Illinois, their newly married daughter Laura, age 17 and her husband, Alexander R. Webb, age 22, also a Jeweler, the 81-year-old Samuel Shove, Elizabeth Conger's stepfather, and a domestic, Mary Reil, born in Ireland, age 30.

The Crayton Hall Conger family also lived in Chicago Ward 5 in 1870, probably fairly near, since both families were enumerated by the same person only two days apart.

Sarah Webb1

b. 30 January 1702/3, d. before 17 February 1749
Father*Reverend Joseph Webb1,2
Mother*Elizabeth Nichols3
Baptism*30 January 1702/3Sarah Webb was baptized on 30 January 1702/3 in Fairfield, Fairfield County, Connecticut.1,2
Marriage*circa 1724She married as his second wife John Dennie, son of Albert Dennie and Elizabeth Wakeman, circa 1724.3,1,2
Estate*1732Sarah (Webb) and her husband John Dennie were named in an agreement about the division of her father's estate in 1732. They were living in Fairfield, Connecticut, at that time.1
Relocation*1733Sarah (Webb) and John Dennie moved to Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), in or after 1733.1
(Wife) Will25 December 1744Sarah (Webb) Dennie was named in the will of her husband John Dennie dated 25 December 1744. He bequeathed to his loving wife Sarah forever one third part of all his estate both real and personal whether in this province, the colony of Connecticut, or elsewhere at her own disposal, his three Negro servants together with all household stuff. His will directed that 500 pounds lawful money of the province be lodged with his executors to be put to interest and improved for any of his children who were under age at the time of his death. He bequeathed to his son Albert Dennie 25 pounds lawful money which, with what he had already received, was his full portion and share. All the remainder of his estate, whether real or personal, he gave to his four other sons: John, William, Thomas and Joseph, and to his five daughters Mary, Grizzel, Elizabeth, Sarah and Abigail to be equally divided among them.

The biggest surprise in the will, published by researchers in 2002, was learning about Joseph, the fourth son of John Dennie. Joseph had not been mentioned in earlier research published in 1930-1932.

Mr. Dennie's will named his children in groups of men and then of women. The order of the naming by gender by their father in his will corresponds to the known dates from records in Fairfield Church. His will was not challenged in court.1
(Wife) Deathbefore 3 February 1747Sarah became a widow when John Dennie died before 3 February 1747.1
Death*before 17 February 1749She died in either 1748 or before 17 February 1749 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1
Guardianship*17 February 1749Guardians were appointed in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), for Sarah (Webb)'s minor children, Thomas, Abigail and Joseph, on 17 February 1749.3
Estate* Sarah died without a will. Her inventory, at six pages, was shorter than her husband's and listed the contents of an upper middle class Boston house of the time and 620 pounds of personal articles. Her inventory included only two of the slaves, Caesar, with the one foot, and Flora and, as with her husband's inventory, listed no real estate. Her son, William Dennie was appointed Adminstator.1
Land Records* The distribution of John Dennie's Connecticut real estate as bequeathed in his will of 1744 was not known to researchers until 2002 and presented many questions. He left his real estate in two parts: two-thirds of his Connecticut property directly to his nine named children, and one-third of all his estate forever "both real and personal whether in this province the colony of Connecticut or elsewhere" to his widow Sarah. This bequest created an estate in real property in Connecticut for Sarah (Webb) Dennie, his widow. Because Sarah died without leaving a will, it was left to the courts to identify and name Sarah's children and heirs.

Land records in Fairfield and in Ridgefield, both in Fairfield County, Connecticut, gave researchers information on the identity of Sarah's heirs. The land records also clarified John Dennie's two wives and clearly identified their two sets of children. Sarah (Webb) Dennie's children were named, and those of Mary (Edwards) Dennie were identified as the other children. Joseph Dennie appeared with Sarah's children as her heir, but not as her son.

The Dennie children all eventually, after they attained their majority, or for the girls, married, sold their Fairfield and Ridgefield real estate. Researchers noted in their report, as an aside, that the real estate was of small value compared to the other property they inherited from their father.

Determined researchers explained their strategy by stating that complete land research for a parcel of property required that deeds be located for all the land sales of the heirs of John Dennie, which they called "the two thirds of the property" and of the heirs of Sarah Dennie, or "the one third of the property". They believed these transactions would identify all the interested parties in the entire package of real estate under review. They knew they were looking for a minimum of two deeds: one for the nine children of John Dennie and one for the court determined heirs of John's widow, Sarah (Webb) Dennie. Unfortunately, they did not know the maximum number of deeds they were looking for, since each of the children could have sold separately, one at a time.

Extensive research of the Dennie family land records in both Fairfield and Ridgefield was said by the researchers to have been "revealing, surprising and astonishing." They took special note in the first two land sales in the grouping and the unity of eight of the heirs. Eight of the nine children named in John Dennie's will joined together to sell all their two thirds interest at one time in one transaction. The deed named each of the eight stating "which said [children] are eight of the children and heirs of John Dennie late... Whereas the same John Dennie by his last will and testament duly proved gave and bequeathed unto his said eight children and his other son Joseph two full third parts of all the real estate... nine acres in Fairfield..." The deed was dated 24 Jan 1758 and recorded 8 Jun 1762. All of the parties named except Joseph signed at one time.

The second deed they found recorded in Fairfield was the sale by the Sarah Dennie heirs, again excepting Joseph. Sarah's four children were named and described as "children and heirs of Sarah Dennie late of Boston deceased intestate... whereas Mr. John Dennie late... by his last will duly proved approved and allowed gave and bequeathed to his widow the said Sarah Dennie one full third part of all his real estate in fee simple... The same Sarah soon after dyed intestate leaving the said William Thomas Sarah and Abigail and one Joseph Dennie her children and heirs". The deed was dated and recorded on the same dates as the first deed, 24 Jan 1758 and 8 Jun 1758, respectively.

The researchers also noted that William Dennie had received a double portion as the eldest son of the intestate Sarah, not the eldest son of John, and sold both parts. Sarah's other three children each received and sold one part. Joseph Dennie had received one portion which he would sell separately, later. John Dennie's son John had received two portions of his father's estate, and each of his siblings had received one. All, except Joseph, sold in full in the first deed described.1

In the source Joseph Dennie and his Circle, the author states, unequivocally and without explanation, that Joseph was the son of John Dennie and Sarah Webb. In the Nutmegger source, however, Sarah as Joseph's mother is, from probate and land records, doubted and considered untrue. This researcher plans to review the records identified by the Nutmegger source, and other records we may find, and present our own conclusion3,1

John O. Webster

Research Notes1806John O. Webster, whose occupation was "retailer, commerce(s)" was listed in the 1806 Boston City Directory. His address was on Ship Street, the same street where John Bolton, the Marine Mariner, lived in 1807. If he was the same Webster that John Bolton was in business with, he could be a clue, and possibly a brother or brother-in-law of Zilpah's. We need to research this John O. Webster to see what we can learn.1

James Weldon1

Residence*1808James lived in Cashel, County Meath, Ireland, in 1808.1
(Trustee) Marriage Settlement1 March 1808A memorial of an indented deed of marriage settlement dated 1 March 1808 was made between John Gerrard of Chamberstown, County Meath, gentleman, of the one part and James Russell of Cashel, County Meath and James Weldon of the same place, gentlemen, trustees in said settlement. The deed recited the marriage of the said John Gerrard with Elinor Gerrard, otherwise Russell, daughter of the said James Russell, with whom she received a marriage portion of £200.

Said deed witnessed that the said John Gerrard, in consideration of the said marriage and the said marriage portion, had executed his bond in warrant of attorney, for confessing judgment thereon, bearing equal date with said deed, for the penal sum of £1,000 for the payment of £500 to be levied off the goods and chattels of the said John Gerrard and handed to the said Elinor in case she should survive him or, in his life time, he might fail in his circumstances. And if issue of said marriage, then one-third part to go to her, and the other two-thirds to such issue. But if neither of such events should happen, then the said bond and warrant to be null and void. And for further securing said sum of £500 upon the contingencies therein, said John Gerrard did encumber that part of the lands of Chamberstown, in the parish of Rathkenny, barony of Navan and county of Meath, demised unto him by his late father John Gerrard, deceased, with liberty to the said trustees to sell his interest therein upon the contingencies aforesaid, not otherwise.

The deed was witnessed by Laurence Brennan of the town of Drogheda, scrivener, and John Gerrard's brother, Edward Gerrard, and the memorial was witnessed by the said Laurence Brennan and John McCudden of the town of Drogheda, weaver. The deed was duly executed, signed and sealed by the parties, John Gerrard, James Russell and James Weldon, and the memorial was registered on 22 November 1809.1

(Niece) Will18 October 1749Elizabeth's uncle Samuel Gerrard wrote his will dated 18 October 1749 at Clongill, County Meath, naming his brothers, John Gerrard and Thomas Gerrard, sister, Dorothy Welsh, nephews, Thomas Gerrard and Gerrard Welsh, niece, Elizabeth Morris, who we believe to have been the daughter of Samuel's sister, Dorothy Welsh, grandnieces, Darcy Wentworth and Catherine Dempster, who Samuel identified as the daughters of Elizabeth Morris, his cousins, Mary Byrne, Robert Gerrard and John Gerrard, and his uncle Edward Gerrard, who was identified as the father of Samuel's cousin John. Unfortunately, the abstract we have of Samuel's will does not identify the father, or parents, of his cousins Mary Byrne and Robert Gerrard, nor does it mention the names of the husbands of Mary Byrne, Elizabeth Morris, Darcy Wentworth or Catherine Dempster. We would really like to see a more complete copy of Samuel's will.2,1,3,4,5
