Mary Dibble & Theophilus Merrimen Fenn

Mary Dibble's surname was the source for middle name of one of her sons, the second Daniel. The first Daniel died young. Mary and husband Theophilus Merriman Fenn were married 11 December 1793, in Mt. Washington, MA. They moved to Genesse County, New York, before 1810, and appear on page 133 of the 1810 census, along with Levi W. Gardner and Rueben Stickney who were on page 132. Also in the same census was Michael Beach, a maternal ancestor. Theophilus M. and Mary Dibble Fenn were the parents of 11 children:

Daniel Dibble and Sarah Patterson

My ancestor, Mary Dibble, was the first of 8 children born to Daniel Dibble and Sarah Patterson. I don't yet have extensive info on the rest of the Dibble line, but am working on it. Here are Daniel and Sarah's children in order of birth. All were born in Mt. Washington, MA.
