Harvey genealogy in Freeport and North Yarmouth

I am looking for the parents of Abner Harvey b. about 1775 in Freeport and m. Mary Polly West on Sep. 24, 1799 in Freeport and is in the 1800 Freeport census.  He died between 1807 and 1810.  I have found eight other Harvey's in Freeport that could be Abner's brothers and sisters.  


David Harvey b. about 1751 was in the 1790, 1800, 1810 and 1820 census in Freeport. He m. Mercy Chandler on Oct 28,1773 and m. Sarah Reed on Dec 10, 1782.  I have been unable to link David with Abner.  


Enoch Harvey b. about 1727 filed marriage intentions with Sarah Wore (Ware) in North Yarmouth on Jul 19, 1752.  I have been unable to link Enoch to David.

The 1800 census makes him a bit younger—16 to 26. There were a couple of Harveys living in Freeport in 1790: David and Enoch. Both had males under 16 years of age living with them, so it's possible that Abner was the son of one or the other. I haven't found any information that would indicate which of these families he might have belonged to.

Chris - thanks.  I have added more information and corrected my typo on Abner's birth.

1768 tax work sheet of North Yarmouth shows Enoch Harvey with 1 rateable poll.  All kinds of ownership indicated (cows, sheep, swine, hay, etc. but no people.  No other Harvey's on list dealing with Harraseeket (Freeport).
