The Carpenter Connection
Mercy Carpenter (b. 13 Mar 1739 Coventry, CT ; d. 7 May 1827 Washington Co., OH ; w/o Edmund Rathbone)
d/o Jeremiah Carpenter (b. ca. 1715/16 ; d. 5 Mar 1792 ; bur. Carpenter Hill Orchard Cemetery, Bennington, VT) - I did find a nice photo of the tombstone online!
s/o Christopher Carpenter (the person who adds this generation states that Christopher's will mentions Jeremiah and says to check Rhode Island Register, vol. 2, no. 2, p. 127 which I've not had a chance to do)
s/o Oliver Carpenter (b. abt. 1668, Pawtucket, R.I.)
s/o Abiah Carpenter (b. 9 Apr 1643, Weymouth, Mass.) - It looks like the Carpenter Encyclopedia mentioned by Randy does show Abiah as the son of William and Oliver as Abiah's son.
s/o William Carpenter (b. abt. 1605, England)
