In trying to clarify things on my husband's Applebee family tree I am coming up with a lot of conflicting information that's out there and am hoping someone can help me see what I am missing.
I am confident of my info on our lines beginning with James Appleby + Anne Clemence RI, James Appleby + wife 2 Dorcas Paine RI, and Nathan Appleby + Katherine Vorback RI & NH - and here's where my confusion begins.
All my evidence shows our next in line as Benjamin Applebee b.1790 Concord NH d. 1862 IL & married Elizabeth Ghoist/Guist (1790 PN - died 1862 IL) but I am also finding infomation that claims this same Benjamin was also married to a Mary Ann Morse and had 2 children with her in 1838 (Nathan) & 1840 (Mehitable).The info I have states that Benjamin Applebee and Elizabeth Guist had Benjamin Applebee Jr. b.1820 aka "Reverend" (which it seems some out there are calling Benjamin Sr. the Reverend, which I can't find evidence to support), and our direct ancestor Henry Applebee b.1830 Ohio. From there our line runs from Henry to John Lewis, Calvin Lewis, Clyde Ralph, Timothy, and my husband Daniel.
Did Benjamin and Elizabeth divorce?Did Elizabeth die before 1838 and I just haven't come across that info yet?Did Benjamin have 2 families?Or somewhere along the way have too many Benjamins gotten mixed up? It doesn't help that so many of these Applebee's keep using the same names....
As I have found reference to all of these people on this list I am hoping someone out there can help me clarify things. Thank you in advance - I am willing to share any and all info I have on our Applebee line.
