Birth? Abt 1785

Very tentative association as son to Stephen PHELPS, Sr. Keep for hypothesis testing only for now. (5/6/98). Listed as an offspring (no sex given) in Phelps & Servin. A woman at NGS Library told me that Peregrine is a boy’s name.

I believe Lucinda also shown as daughter in Phelps & Servin is actually a daughter-in-law to Stephen, Sr., through Stephen Jr. At one time I believed that Ruth is not from Stephen Sr’s first marriage but from his third marriage to widow Ruth Goodrich. However, I now believe that the daughter Ruth came from Stephen’s second marriage, since her name shows up in the list of children going to Pennsylvania with Stephen.
