bullet  General Notes:

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.

However, the 1850 census in Grand Blanc shows Levi Remington, age 45, living with Sara, age 35, and 10 children, including a Joseph, Sylvester and Isaac. That Sarah was born in New York. I believe that Sarah may be the same person as the Asenath Allen shown in the birth records for Joseph, Sabestin, Isaac and Norman. Perhaps the enumerator didn't recognize the name Asenath, or Sarah was a nickname.

A descendant chart dated 2/9/92 by JR Appleby with information derived from a Flint, Michigan relation letter to Osmer Remington before 1955 shows Cythia ALLEN 7/31/1815 - 12/3/1885, was the wife of Levi Remington, born 9/20/1805.

Probably the same source, "Elihu Remington born in 1743 data sheet" shows the name as Cynthia Allen.

Other sources (although non-supporting) checked for the name of Asenath Allen are: AIS showed an Asenath Allen in the 1850 census in Greenfield, Franklin, MA. On checking that census Asenath Allen was age 55, born in MA and was idiotic in the poor house. Fortunately this was the wrong Asenath Allen, since her name would have had to have been Remington;
IGI - U.S. - Vermont showed at Asenath Allen born about 1760 in Windham, of Dover. This too was the wrong Asenath Allen because she would have been too old.

bullet  Birth Notes:

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.

Asenath married Levi Remington-[1125] [MRIN: 361], son of Elihu Remington-[1375] and Lydia Spencer-[1640], in 1830.1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 (Levi Remington-[1125] 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.)

bullet  Noted events in their marriage were:

1. Alt. Marriage: Alt. Marriage, 28 May 1831. 17


bullet  Marriage Notes:

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.
