About Ebenezer "Eben" Hoag

Yes, Ebenezer "Eben" Hoag (Emery) is a woman.

NOTE - Sometime after the 1982 Revised Emery Genealogy went to press I found a manuscript on the Hoags located in the state Library & possibly another - both copies were to fragile and copying was not allowed they had to be had copied - I hired a certified genealogist and after several hundred dollars and about a years time using group sheets the manuscript was transcribed in full for the supplemental material for the 1982 Emery Book

7 EBENEZER EMERY m. 21 Apr. 1669 Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts JOHN HOAG b. 4 Jan. 1643 England or Wales bp. 21 Jan. 1646 Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts d. 1728 Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts s/o Richard and Joan Hoag and came to America with his father's family when 7 years old. The rest of the family returned to Wales or England as it is said considerable property fell to them but to get it they were obligated to England; but John being bound out at the age of 7 as an apprentice to a leather dresser, was obligated to remain.

Ebenezer's birth is recorded: "Ebenezer a daughter born 16 Sep. 1648 being Monday morning two hours before day. Ebenezer hitherto hath the Lord helped us."

Evidently this daughter was named from hearts overflowing with thankfulness. Though Miss Ebenezer might not have fancied her Christian name, I doubt not it gave her a puritan sire the keenest satisfaction.

Another account of her name is;

>> Like many Puritans, the Emerys looked to Holy Scripture in naming their children, and so out of a sense of thankfulness they named her Ebenezer meaning  “the Lord has helped us” (1 Samuel 7:12).  John and Alice were obviously thankful to God that they had survived the first few years in the New World, years that must have been full  of hardship, want and danger.  John’s wife, Alice, died a few months after giving birth to Ebenezer.

John was opposed to the Salem witchcraft. After the children were all grown up all the family became Quakers. He d. 1728 aet 85. and Ebenezer d. 28 Apr. 1694.

She was born on a Monday morning. Her birth was recorded as "Ebenezer, a daughter born 16 Sept 1648 being Monday morning two hours before day. Ebenezer Hitherto has the Lord helped us."

Evidently this daughter was named from hearts overflowing with thankfulness. The name "Ebenezer" means "stone of help." It was a memorial stone erected by Samuel to mark the place, north of Jerusalem, where God helped Israel to defeat the Philistines. To "raise an Ebenezer" means to mark a place of victory.

I wonder how she felt about her name as it was given most often to boys.
