Hello. I am trying to figure out the parents of Lucy Ide (she was reportedly born 1785 in MA).My mom has a copy of "The Ide Family" book which states that Lucy was the daughter of Ezra Ide, but doesn't name her mother.It also says that Lucy came to Luzerne Co. with Nehemiah Ide in 1800-01, along with 2 of Ezra Ide Sr's other children (Ezra Jr & Stephen).
I can't find any record of her birth in Massachusetts. A transcription of the Ezra Allen family bible from Maine lists other children but not Lucy or a name similar.Most of these children are buried in Maine anyhow -- and Lucy Ide Allen is buried in Luzerne County, PA.It seems odd that her name would be omitted from a family bible especially since Ezra Jr and Stephen are included -- why leave one particular daughter out?
Any information about Lucy's parents would be greatly appreciated.I am descended from her on my mother's side (my grandmother was an Allen).
