This post will cover the possibility of a prior wife for Edward Jr., named Rebecca Jamison along with two possible sons born to this couple.
The deed I am exploring today would seem to be the final one involving Edward. But, as my readers will see in my next post, there is yet one more to be explored.
Today’s deed further subdivides Lot 66 in Lyman by chopping off another 10 acres of land and selling it.
Today I will explore the second deed in Grafton County that involves the Marden family. It is a quit claim deed for the Annis family land in Bath, NH and it helps establish the identity of Edward Jr’s wife as Elizabeth Annis, daughter of David Annis of Bath, NH.
In the deed I am exploring today, I see the 60 acres purchased by Edward Jr. is now being sold to Phineas Ash of Lyman. This transfer takes place less than a year after Junior acquired the property. Phineas Ash will appear in other Marden deeds as well.
The deed I am exploring today provides a clear link between Edward Sr. and Edward Jr.. It would have been nice to find the words son or father somewhere in the deed, but at least a connection is established.
This next deed is the one mentioned by Edward in his pension inventory dated August of 1820. This is the deed of land to Edward’s wife from Charles K. White. It is very interesting to note this appears to be the same land Edward sold to Charles 2 years prior.
The next deed I am exploring signals the beginning of a series of ownership transfers for the 100 acre Lot 66 in Lyman on which Edward Marden is living. The property passes back and forth and is sub-divided all the while Edward is living on the property.
