I'm sending a copy to our 'list' so everyone else will benefit. The 2 Whitcombs are still a mystery. Yes I suppose they could be children - but whose?

Job b 1/17/1740 s/o Irael Whitcomb and Hannah Kent married 7/27/1769 to Keziah Wheelright b 9/23/1750 in Cohasset, MA, he d 9/23/1813, only child listed is David b 6/4/1776, this Job has 2 sisters Hannah, but both died before age 10. Could your Job and Hannah be children in that will? Job b 4/16 or 26/ 1730 s/o Jonathan married as you have Abigail Whitney, etc. has son Job b 1/24/1782 Job s/o John m 5/19/1669 m Mary ? has son Job 1674 who m Ann Loomis and had a Job (no further info) he also has a son John who has a son Job b 5/8/1724 who went to PA married Ann Skinner 3/10/ 1757, he has a son Job died young Philemon has a son Job b 1797 m 3/1/1818 Nellie Bennet in Swanzey, NH That's all I could find on Job.
