  1. Hey – I found your website by mistake. I was searching in Yahoo for Georgia vacations for my family trip when I found your site, I have to say your site is pretty cool I just love the theme, its amazing!. I don’t have the time at the moment to totally read your entire site but I have bookmarked it and also signed up for your RSS feed. I’ll back in a day or two. thanks for a great site.

  2. Hello! I am a little late, but regarding your ‘mystery of the month’ Mr. Ebenezer Page, does the account book mention Augusta, Georgia?

    My ancestor, Ebenezer Page, appears in Richmond Co., GA in 1849, marrying a local gal, and eventually moving to Marietta, Cobb Co., GA. Census records and his grave states he was born in CT in 1813, and I believe he was the son of an Ebenezer Page from Southington, Hartford Co., CT who died during the War of 1812. A pension was paid to 3 children: Ebenezer Jr, Alvin, and Bilson. I track Alvin and Bilson in Fall River, Bristol Co., MA later in the century. Alvin’s death record lists mother as Elizabeth Drayton or Brayton.

    I never knew why Ebenezer Jr. moved down to Georgia, but I have your account book can shed some light on his activities.

  3. Adam,

    Thank you for the information. I don’t recall if Augusta is mentioned; I’ll have to pull out the account book and take another look. Hopefully I’ll be able to do that in the next day or so.

  4. A good friend of mine is a descendant of Bilson Page born ca 1810 in Farmington, CT son of Ebenezer Page. Bilson died in Fall River, MA sometime after 1870. Can someone provide more detail on his father Ebenezer Page? Thanks.

    • Al,
      Good to hear from you. Both Alvin & Bilson’s death certificates list Ebenezer as father, but I don’t know much about him. He enlisted in the Army on Jun 2, 1813 and died Mar 12, 1815. A record from 1820 lists pensions benefits for Alvin, Bilson, & Ebenezer Jr. My email address is adamrmatthews at yahoo dot com
