I am looking for information on Ebenezer Gowing.He was born in 1702 to Nathaniel Gowing and Martha Proctor Gowing.Nathaniel was the yongest son of Robert Gowing and Elizabeth Brock Gowing.Nathaniel was born about 1662 possibly in Lynnfield, MA.
Supposedly Ebenezer was married to an Elizabeth Eaton.Can any one confirm this. In trying to discover Jonathan's ancestors (seeking to see if he is a descendant of Robert Gowing) I have found two conflicting bits of information.
First that his parents were Nathaniel Gowing and Martha Proctor Going. Second that his parents were Ebenezer Gowing and Eizabeth Eaton.
I tend to discount that Nathaniel was his father.If he was then he would have been about 76 years of age. Jonathan Going was born in 1738.I am sure it is not impossible but I think it is unlikely.This leads me to think that Nathaniel may have been Jonathan's grandfather.
I am inclined to think that Ebenezer and Elizabeth were his parents.Does any one have infomation about Ebenezer and Elizabeth (Eaton).I am especially interested in documented sources or where I can look for sources.
