  • Name [SMALL] Deborah 
    Born Apr 1747  [2, 3
    Gender Female 
    _UID 69C7E6B824A249F8B7C36805CFF73A41FDC9 
    Died 6 Mar 1817  [2, 3
    Notes 
    • The maiden name of Deborah, Elisha Small, Jr.'s second wife, is unknown and published sources provide only speculation as to her identity. Lora Underhill, for example, suggests that Elisha's wife "was probably" Deborah Small of Harpswell, daughter of Taylor and Thankful (Ridley) Small, but this is incorrect.

      Elisha and Deborah's marriage intentions on 2 Sep 1774 label them "Mr. Elisha Small and Mrs. Deborah Small," suggesting Deborah was a widow when she married. While the Bible extract does not give Deborah's maiden name, it shows her to have been the widow of Elisha Small's older brother, Nathaniel, and it gives her month and year of birth as April 1747. The birthdate of Taylor and Thankful (Ridley) Small's daughter is recorded in Harpswell as 10 Apr 1743 and there is no further record of her. These were likely two different women.

      Based on Robert Mayo having been the executor of Elisha's estate, together with naming patterns of Elisha and Deborah's children, she may have been the daughter of Robert and Deborah (Strout) Mayo.
