Biography

Nathaniel Whitcomb, a twin to brother James, was born 19 August 1697, in Scituate, Plymouth County, Province of Massachusetts Bay, to parents James Whitcomb Mary Parker. Interestingly, brother James was not born until 21 August.[1]

He married 1st, Rosillah (Rose in marriage record) Coombs 21 January 1722/3 in Rochester, Plymouth County.[2]

Rosillah died in Rochester on 8 March 1737, shortly after the birth of their son John on 14 February of that year. The record does not reflect double dating, so perhaps the actual year was 1738[3]

Nathaniel married 2nd, Phebe Blackmer on 27 July 1738 in Rochester: [4]

Nathaniel was born about 1700. He passed away in 1771.
