    • Does not appear in 1810 Census or on any additional town records. Same for his brother Job; however, Job turned up in Washington, Virginia in 1790 and 1791 after suspected he died. Since Ebenezer remained in Ulster a decade later, he likely did not move with Job and probably died about 1805 plus or minus 5 years.
