Will of "Philemon Whale of Sudbury", dated 19 Jan 1675[/6], proved 4 Apr 1676, mentions "my beloved wife Elizabeth" [executrix], "the foure sonnes of my loveing daughter Elizabeth Moores, vizt. William, Jacob, Joseph and Benjamine". Inventory 28 Mar 1675/6.
The naming of Elizabeth Moore, the wife of John Moore, in Philemon's will is often used to prove she was the daughter of Philemon, but Source:The Genealogist (American Society of Genealogists), p. 6:138, makes a detailed argument showing she must have been a daughter of Philemon's first wife, Elizabeth Frost, from her first marriage to Henry Rice, and only a step-daughter to Philemon. Since, apparently, none of Philemon's natural children lived long enough to come to New England, he was especially generous to her.
