    John Whitmarsh m. near 1654 Sarah Harding, d/o John Harding. Administration on estate of John Harding, late of Weymouth, was granted to John Whitmarsh in right of his wife, the only child of said Harding on 31 Oct 1682. Will of John Whitmarsh 22 May 1695 mentions eldest son John, sons Ebenezer Zachariah [if returns from sea], Ezra [executor], James [deceased]; daughters Sarah, Mary, Deborah, Judith Shaw and Ruth. Grandchildren Joseph Petty [s/o Sarah and Joseph Petty], John Bates [s/o Mary and Increase Bates], and Richard Whitmarsh.

  2.   Source:History of Weymouth, Massachusetts, p. 4:759, lists a daughter Jane, b. 8 Sept 1675, but she is not named in John's will. Nor is her birth recorded in Source:Vital records of Weymouth, Massachusetts, to the year 1850. This is made all the more suspicious by the similarity of her name to the name of son James, and her birthdate to that of James, 8 Sep 1676. It appears to me to be the result of a mis-transcription somewhere along the line in the author's recordkeeping. --Jrich 14:44, 12 June 2009 (EDT)
