Abner married.


bullet  Marriage Notes:

Shuah, or Jerusha, Gilman, daughter of Moses Gilman of Exeter, New Hampshire, is often named as the wife of Abner. So far the closest I've found to a source is from Vol 2 of Savage:

MOSES, S. of the preced. prob. eldest, had two ws. Ann, and Elizabeth neither of wh. have kn. surnames, had ch. (nam. in his will, made 4 Apr. 1741, pro. 28 Oct. 1746), Moses, Abigail, Ann, Judith, Shuah, and Elizabeth.

This will, found in the Ancestry.com New Hampshire Probate Records, names the children's last names: "Abigail Lord, Anne Longee, Judith Smith, Shuah Thustin and Elizabeth Thustin." There is no concrete evidence of the marriage. Abner's son Moses named his third child Shuah. 3 4
