ABEDNEGO (m): At least one set of children was named for the men in the Biblical Fiery Furnace (Daniel, chapters 1–3): Meschach, Shadrack, and Abednego Rust were born at Wolfeboro, N.H., 20 Aug. 1796, sons of William and Hannah (Marble) Rust. Shadrack died young, but Meshach and Abednego survived to marry and leave descendants (Rev. Albert Dexter Rust, Record of the Rust Family, Embracing the Descendants of Henry Rust... [1891], pp. 235-36).
