Following is a quote from a letter whose author I will give you if you contact me privately. "The earliest record we have of Ebenezer was on the assessment rolls of Springhill Township, Bedford County, Pennsylvania for 1773.At that time Bedford Co included all of southwestern Pennsylvania & the area was also claimed by Virginia as the District of West Augusta.Ebenezer, as well as a Jonathan and a William Paddock, is listed on the payroll of Captaid David Rogers' company of Virginia militia dated 2 October 1775. We next find Ebenezer in Nelson County, Kentucky, where he bought land in 1789 and 1798.About 1800 he removed to Hamilton Co., Ohio (became Butler Co. in 1803, and about 1816 he moved his family to Vigo Co., Indiana where he died in 1830. Ebenezer is said to have been born in Maryland in 1740, but I have found neither the source or the proof........Keziah's father was William Case, whose Will was probated 14 February 1803 in Nelson County, Kentucky."Here you have some good evidence of research and sourcing. Oops. I see, after reading this over, that the wild speculation in my first message about Reuben possibly sailing from Barnstable, Mass to Kentucky is not even plausible.No mention of Reuben in Kentucky.Only Ebenezer.I, too, need to be careful about such things.
