My wild guess is that Jabez Remington could be related to the West Springfield / Westfield MA Remingtons, with a guess that he is the son of Daniel b. c. 1705, with also a possibility that he is the grandson of John through a son other than Daniel.
In 1775 he bought land in Norfolk, CT from Peter Comstock: "A Comstock Genealogy" By Cyrus Ballou Comstock, page 53
Per the 1790 census he was living in Westfield, MA, as was Josiah (which is why I am guessing, wild guess, that he is Josiah's brother. Possibly cousin with shared grandfather John):
The family gender/age mix in the census matches perfectly to what some have posted as children (Selina 1773 / Penelope 1775 / Martin 1777 / Rufus 1780 / Ebenezer 1783 / Lucy 1783 / Zeno 1785 / Charity 1788 / Mills 1793 / Joseph 1795 / Sally 1797, no reference).
Jabez named his son Ebenezer, and there is an Ebenezer who is also brother of Josiah son of Daniel. Also, this site claims Ebenezer died in Norfolk in 1781, reference unclear:
http://www.thesorensens.net/FamilyTree/gp3231.htm. One could wildly speculate that Jabez sold his land in Norfolk to his brother.
Also, some say Josiah had a son "Jabal".
Suffield CT where there were lots of Remingtons is only 18 miles from Westfield MA.
So these are the weak pointers for his parentage. Perhaps he was left out of some lists.
He is almost certainly not the black Rev War soldier Jabez Remington, who would have been 14 at the time of the marriage to Penelope, and appears elsewhere in the 1790 census, amongst other problems.
My line is from his daughter Penelope Morley to her daughter Penelope Warn to her son Gilbert Warn.
