Elizabeth, daughter of Robert and Mary (Cudworth) Whitcomb was born about 1672 in Scituate.

Disputed Marriage

Lincoln's History of the Town of Hingham records Elizabeth Whitcomb (daughter of Robert Whitcomb) as the second wife of Daniel Lincoln. They married Jan 1710/1711, intentions published 24 Aug 1730.[1]

Research Notes

  1. She was attached to Daniel Lincoln as her spouse, however, evidence from an indenture of partition[2] shows that the Elizabeth Whitcomb who married Daniel Lincoln was the daughter of Isaac Buck, or the widow of Robert Whitcomb, Jr.
  2. In 1682, Elizabeth, daughter of Robert Whitcomb, Sr., was not mentioned in her grandfather, James Cudworth's will.
  3. In 1697, she was not mentioned in her father's probate, as the other children were mentioned.
