Trying to find out if Mayflower Families Through Five Generations Vol. 15. p. 163, 175-176 (a citation on the profile of Ezra Knowlton) mentions his daughter "Ame" or Emma, and who her husband was. 

Many thanks!

Hi Bobbie, yes MF:15:163,175-6 does list Ame as being baptized in Ipswich 14 Nov 1773. Since she is the 6th generation, there is no more info on her, so you will have to look to vital records for any marriages and family. Sorry to say she is not listed in the Ipswich records for marriage or death. Good luck!            Tom

Thanks very much, Tom. I have found a likely marriage for her in Hamilton, which is where her father Ezra died. I've found his will, which names his adult children, but unfortunately does not give their married surnames. I was hoping that the MF blurb might make a mention.
Congrats Bobbie! Looks like you are on the right track and doing your research. Nice to know you are doing it responsibly!
Did you find Alexander's birth in Topsfield??

Abraham do you mean? That's actually the crux of the matter. There were two Abraham Hobbses, one designated as Abraham III, and another as Abraham Jr. We're currently trying to find the parents of Abraham Jr. It's a challenge. Abe Jr. was originally attached to the wrong parents, we think, and are working on both of them and their various spouses to try to prove the relationships. Too many Abrahams and too few birth records to correspond. It appears Abe Jr. doesn't have a birth record.

Yes, I meant Abraham. Sorry 'bout that.

Topsfield VR lists: Abraham s. Abraham jr. and Elizabeth, 14 Apr 1772

Abraham jr. married Elisebeth Cummings 6 Dec 1764.

Does this help??
Records also state that Abraham d. 30 Sep 1825 ag. abt 85 yrs.

Further down it says that Sarah w. of Abraham d. 1 Jun 1812 ag. abt 96 yrs so she would have been b. abt 1716. all fits so far.
I also found: Abraham Hobbs & Sarah Brown m. 15 May 1738 in Ipswich Hamlet (copied from church records) and their intention was recorded 6 May 1738 in Ipswich.

Thanks Tom. Yes, those are the parents and grandparents of Abraham III. Still working out what Abraham Jr.'s  line is. It's a tough one.

Don't forget that the terms "senior" and "junior" could apply to the same person at various ages. An Abraham, Sr. might be the eldest surviving Abraham in his family at one time, but he might have been referred to as Abraham Junior thirty years earlier if he was son (or possibly nephew) of another Abraham living in the same community. Associated birth/death/marriage years have to be considered to help keep them all straight.
