    [Note: this source presents unsourced family trees of individuals. Regarding Benjamin Thwing, one lists Benjamin Thwing's wife is Deborah --- (p. 858: Charles Franklin Thwing), and a second Thwing entry was the son of Charles Franklin Thwing, so referred this same information. The third entry alone claims her surname is Savage (p. 859: Eugene Thwing), but even within the limited format available, provides no marriage date or details for Deborah, just a name. No reputable source has been located that gives the maiden name as Savage, nor has any basis for the belief that her maiden name was Savage been discovered, though the rush for answers means this has been repeated in several Internet trees, none found yet that offer any actual evidence.]
