He and his wife united with the Church in Greenland when it was organized in July 1706. They had seven children.

Notes for JOB PHILBROOK:
It was about the year 1744 that Job Philbrook, 15 years old, and an Irish boy named Mahoney, were plowing at some distance from home when Indians came between them and the house, took them prisoner and led them to Canada. After some three years Job was ransomed and returned home.

He settled first at "Long Reach" and then at Vinal Haven, Maine, a farmer, carpenter, and lumberman. He also acted as scrivener, writing deeds, bonds, etc. for the early settlers. His first wife, Mary Trufant of Georgetown, Main, died about 1774. After his older children (names unknown) were settled, he married (2) Dolly Hinckley of Castine, and removed from Vinal Haven and settled on one of the Isleboro group, called Job's Island. He married (3) Widow Hannah Coombs, and in old age returned to Vinal Haven, and died about 1802.

After he was married, and had a large fmily of little ones to provide for, he was called away from home on business and detained longer than he intended; the provisions in the house fell short. The mother, instead of sitting down and crying with the hungry children, determined to hunt for food. Taking a hand sled with guns, ammunition, etc. she started with the oldest boy, Jere, fourteen years old, over the ice and snow in search of some animal food so much needed for the children. As Providence ordered, they had traveled only about four miles when they came in sight of a moose; they shot it, bled it, and being unable to remove the whole body, cut off flesh enough to feed the children a few days and returned. The next day the husband and his Indian man returned, and had little difficulty in bringing home the rest of the venison.
