The records of Scituate show the births of the following children to Robert:[1]

  • Content Whetcombe, b. 4 Aug 1695
  • Elizabeth Whetcombe, b. 13 Feb 170[4]

Widow Elizabeth Whitcomb was the administrator of the estate of Robert Whitcomb. She gave an accounting of the estate on 13 June 1707. That accounting mentions that she received 1/3 of the estate and that the rest went to her three children, being daughters. Their ages were given at time of death of Robert, and they are specifically noted as the children Elizabeth had with Robert:

  • Content, about 7? years
  • Molia, 5 years
  • Elizabeth, 3/4 years

NOTE: There are TWO accountings in this probate file, but one of them refers to children who are clearly children of Robert Sr. so, although it is included in the probate file, I have note included it here. Please see the profile for Robert Sr.Watt-266 14:01, 2 July 2016 (EDT)
