THE DESCENDANTS OF
JEFFREY HEMENWAY

I. Jeffrey HEMENWAY - b abt 1738 Boston, MA; d 15 Aug 1819 Worcester, MA; m 1rst to Susanna WRIGHT b 10 Jun 1737, dau of Sampson WRIGHT & Martha CONSTABLE; Ch were:

1. Thaddeus HEMENWAY - b 22 Feb 1761 (See Below)

2. Susanna HEMENWAY - b 15 Jan 1768

NOTES: Jeffery Hemenway was the adopted/foster child of Ebenezer Hemenway and his wife Mary Eve. The "History Of Framingham" lists him as mulatto, others believe him to be of Indian descent. Mary Eve was captured by Indians as a baby and redeemed in her girlhood. There was some supposition that he was her biological child but this has been disproved. Jeffery was born abt 1738 in Boston, MA and given as a child to Ebenezer & Mary and was raised along with their children in Framingham, MA. It is unknown what connection Jeffery's biological parents may have had with the Hemenways that their child was to be raised by them.

Sometime before 1761 Jeffery married Susanna (Wright), the daughter of Samson and Martha (Constable) Wright. They had two children, Thaddeus & Susanna. Thaddeus moved to NY then on to Bradford Co, PA. Nothing has been found on Susanna but it is presumed both she and her mother died before Jeffery moved to Worcester in 1778.
