|Asenath Cynthia Allen-
There is a lot of conflicting information as to the name of the wife of Levi Remington. But I believe the weight of evidence is to Asenath Allen, since it is consistent over the period from 1833 through 1854 during which time they bore four children listed in the IGI births.
Birth year is based on age of Sarah as 35 at the time of the 1850 census. It is assumed that Sarah (in the census) and Asenath (mother of Joseph, Sabestin, Isaac and Norman) are the same person. In the census there are children Joseph, Sylvester and Isaac. Norman is too young to appear on the 1850 census. Birth date is confirmed (although for Cythia ALLEN) in a descendant chart by JR Appleby on 2/9/92.
Noted events in her life were:
1. Alt. Birth: Alt. Birth, 29 Aug 1815. 8
2. Alt. Death: Alt. Death, 3 Dec 1884. 14
3. Census, 4 Sep 1850, Grand Blanc, Genesee, Michigan, U.S.A. 15 The 1850 census lists as "Sarah" rather than "Asenath". She is age 35 and was born in NY according to the census.
Asenath married Levi Remington- [MRIN: 361], son of Elihu Remington- and Lydia Spencer-, in 1830.1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 (Levi Remington- was born on 20 Sep 1805 in Westfield, Hampden, Massachusetts, U.S.A.,5 11 12 16 17 died on 24 Apr 1887 in Gaines, Genesee, Michigan, U.S.A. 5 13 14 17 18 and was buried after 24 Apr 1887 in Evergreen (Whigville) Cemetery, Whigville, Grand Blanc, Genesee, Michigan 14.)
Noted events in their marriage were:
1. Alt. Marriage: Alt. Marriage, 28 May 1831. 17
One source, "Elihu Remington born 1743 data sheet," states there were 12 children of Levi and Cynthia; however it combines two as one called Loomis Aden Sevestian. Sevestian was a separate child according to IGI birth records. So that would make 13 children with Franklin.
