329 years ago, 20 January 1692, in the colony of Massachusetts, my 7th great grandmother, Abigail Lumbert, was born to Joshua and Hopewell Bullock Lumbert. On 3 May 1716, in Barnstable, Massachusetts, grandmother married Isaac Isham, son of John and Jane Parker Isham. The family rounded out with eight children: Isaac (1718), Samuel (1719), John (1721), Ebenezer (1723). Timothy (1725) [my 6th great grandfather]. Joshua (1727), and Abigail (1731).
Grandmother Isham passed away in 1770.
Timothy Isham was wed to Rebecca Fuller, the third great granddaughter of Edward Fuller who was a passenger on the 1620 Mayflower. Edward and his wife did not survive the first winter in North America, but their 12 year old son, Samuel, who accompanied them on the voyage did. It is through Samuel that our line of descent is established.
