  • Notes 
    • By the time Phoebe was five her mother had married the Reverend Ebenezer Prime, a well respected man in the Presbyterian church. She grew up in the Prime house and was well educated, and very religious. Her company was always sought out by both clergy and the well educated when they were passing through the area.

      After her marriage, Phoebe became a well respected host and entertainer. When the British came to the house looking for her husband he hid in the fire place, and when Phoebe was threatened with death she still claimed not to know where he was. Captain Coffin after searching the house said if he did not find Lt. Scudder he would be dead. A few days later while Captain Coffin sat at a table playing cards and drinking at The Inn at the Cedars a group of rebels led by Lt. Henry Scudder surrounded the inn, burst in, shooting the Captain dead at his table and taking 16 prisoners.

      Scudder was known by the Loyalists to be assisting Captain Tallmadgea and his men cross the sound from Connecticut and harass British troupes. For this his Crab Meadow property was laid to waste, and all buildings except the house were burned along with his stock being driven off, except for some cattle an old slave was said to have hidden somewhere away from the farm.
