I am looking for family line for:
John S. Remington married Abigail (?) circa 1828 and had several children which included my GRGRGrandmother Caroline Remington who was born 8th August 1838 in Covington, Kentucky. Family lived there several years.
(history) Eliphalet Remington,b.13 October, 1768, Founder of the Remington Rifle Works, U.S. fire-arms manufacturer and inventor was a cousin to my John S. Remington. The story goes that John descended from one brother, Thomas Remington and our John S. Remington was descended from the other brother John Remington. Thomas and John came to the Colonies from England circa 1637.
Note: In the personal data sheet for Abigail I note the speculation of the Pierce maiden name to her.
IGI record shows a John S Remington Born 3 March 1819 of Greenwich, Washington, NY. Father Benjamin Remington and his mother was Phebe Thompson. (Don't know if thisis myline)
