Re: Simeon Pike b. abt 1780, NH Update!
Greetings from this side of the pond! Unfortunately I ambrick walled at Simeon, who was b. abt 1780 (according to census information) He had to have been born abt that time frame to have my ggg grandfather Ezra GEORGE Pike SR and his brother Stephen GEORGE Pike.. In many genealogies they have Simeon being married to a Melinda Nichols, but I am convinced that the Simeon who is listed in Salisbury, NH marriage records,marrying a Hannah George is my man. Tracing him back to a son of James Pike and Alice George.(not 100% proven though) The locations and naming patterns and dates fit exactly.I think that whomever supplied the author with data on the son of James and Alice (George) Pike in Descendant's of Hugh Pike, did not know Simeon was married previously, as I do believe they are the same Simeon.. I think my Simeon had at least 2 sons' with Hannah GEORGE. She may have died and he remarried this Melinda Nichols, as a Simeon shows up in an enumerated census in VT before NY and his wife appears much younger with I think three females, leading me to believe this was the same Simeon from NH and stayed in VT a short time before NY, where he reportedly died.
It is entirely possible your Eliza George Pike was a 1st cousin to my Simeon. Look at the book, Descendant's of Hugh Pike and I think Hannah Emerson. (I can't recall right now who he married) This is who I think our Pikes descend from. It is loaded with information on this man's line and my Simeon is mentioned in it being married to Melinda Nichols.
I am not 100% positive but I think James and Alice George had a son Hugh, so this may be your connection in NH. These areas in Massachusetts and NH are practically within walking distances of each other.
I am afraid I can't connect your ancestor. But as I said it looks like she is indeed a relative. another coincidence is that James' Pike's father, also named Jamesmarried an Ann George, so as you can see, it looks like a great many George and Pike marriages' took place, throughout this Pike line history.
Hope this helps,
