Eber,* child of and

1 841, aged 73 ; md. in , May

23, 1787, Catherine McCollumn, dau. Daniel McCollumn,t
and , his wife, bom in

Scotland, , (1764?),

died in Litchfield, July 6, 1836, aged 72, and had six (?) J
children.

Children of Eber, and Catherine McCollumn:
971 (1). Norman, bom in Woodville,§ Conn., Feb. 11,
1788 (md., ch.).

* It is at p resent impossible to place Eber, although it appears more
than5^robatle)that he was a son of William and Deborah Strong, who
figurein ine Lost Tribes. Indeed, from the dates, it would be im-
possible for him to be the son of any one else. Beyond the records of
two of the children of this William, we have nothing of this family.
Tradition among Eber's descendants makes them members of the
Hebron family, and declares Eber to be the son of a William, and to
have had a brother Joseph. These are such thoroughly Peters names
that this tradition is probably correct, especially as we find the dis-
tinctive Hebron name of John Thompson in this line. It is to be
hoped that the publication of this volume will clear and straighten
out many obscure and uncertain lines.

t Daniel McCallum (or McCollumn), it is said, came to this country,
from Scotland, with the avowed purpose of giving his money and his
life to the American cause. He landed in New York about the time
of the occupation of that city by Sir Henry Clinton (1777), was taken
prisoner, and thrown into a prison ship, and his family scattered.
(Duncan McCoUom of Saybrook, Conn., married Hannah Peters of
Preston, 1805; perhaps he was of the same family. See page 99.)

X From the records of Sturbridge, Mass.: "Died, 1813, Dec. 28,
child of Eber Peters."
