I have a Gideon Allen (-) m Mary Wright (-) abt 1698 in Guilford, CT. Mary's parents were Thomas and Sarah Benton Wright.Gideon & Mary had 3 sons in Guilford - Gideon, Jr., b. 1699; Joseph, b. 1702; Ebenezer, b. 1704. According to Guilford records Gideon deserted Mary and went to Killingworth and the town had to support her. Ten years later he appears in Westport, CT and marries Phebe, the widow of John Bennett.No maiden name for Phebe. In Westport Gideon becomes known as "Gideon of Compo" so as not to confuse him with Lt. Gideon Allen who took up residence in Fairfield, CT about the same time. Gideon and Phebe had 2 children - John b 1714 and Mary b ?. I have researched this Gideon Allen extensively in MA, RI and CT and my question is "Who are his parents?"The Lt. Gideon is very easy to research. I was told by a relative in Westport that my Gideon was an Indian. Now this makes a very interesting story indeed as both of these Gideon's were in the same areas until they arrived in Westport. Does anyone have anything to add to this story?
