This Jabez was born 1768 at either Lyme or Hebron CT, died 1812 Lymansville, Potter Co. PA. Married 1790 Omenda Merrill (daughter of Asher Merrill and Delight SAWYER). Jabez's burial place is not known, but Omenda was buried in Clermont Co. PA.
This information comes frfom descendants Patricia Randall and Maureen Lee.
They also state that jabez moved from Charlotte, Delaware Co. NY to Potter Co. PA in fall of 1812. jabez took sick near the end of the trip and died a week later.
Joshua Beckwith (Joshua-4, Jonathan-3, John-2, Matthew-1) had a son Jabesh. Joshua's 2nd child is said to have been born c1761 and his 4th c1773. Jabez would fit right inbetween! The problem is Jabez vs. Jabesh. However, a Jabesh Beckwith of Chautauqua Co. NY is enumerated as Jabez in census records, so there is the possibility that Jabesh, son of Joshua, is actually Jabez?!
