In Reply to: Benjamin Wilbore b.c. 1670, possibly NY by Maggie Musselman of 10

I have Benjamin b. 1670 (Tiverton, Newport Co., RI) d. 1729 (Dartmouth, MA); m.(1) 22 Jun 1700 to Mary Kinnicut & m. (2) 2 Nov 1710 to Elizabeth or Hannah Head. I have no offsring of either marriage.

Benjamin's father was William (21 May 1630 - Bef. 15 Aug 1710) His mother was Martha Holmes or Hulme (1634? - 15 Aug 1710) His grandfather was Obadiah Holmes the great Baptist preacher and 5th great grandfather of President Abraham Lincoln. If this is so - and I am not ready to assert its veracity - Benjamin would be a 1st cousin, 6 times removed of the 16th President. I am trying to make sure I have the correct Martha Holmes - there are definitely at least two in this generation of Rhode Island residents.
