Happy 356th Birthday, Grandmother Isham!

On 21 March 1664, in Barnstable, Massachusetts, Jane Parker was born to Robert and Sarah James Parker.  Jane was my 8th great grandmother.  Grandmother married John Isham, in Barnstable, on 16 December 1687.   They were the parents of nine children: Jane (1689), John (1691), Isaac (1693) [my 7th great grandfather], Sarah (1694), Mary (1697), Patience (1699), Hannah (1701), Joseph (1704), and Thankful (1706).  I think grandmother was just thankful, that #9, Thankful, was the end of the line!

It was their grandson, Timothy Isham (Isaac’s son) that married Rebecca Fuller, descendant of Edward and Samuel Fuller, Mayflower Passengers of 1620.

Grandfather preceded Grandmother in death on 3 September 1713.  Grandmother died in Feburay 1719.  Both in Barnstable, Massachusetts.


About Pat Shaul

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
