1. WILLIAM3 PHILBROOK (THOMAS2, THOMAS1) was born June 27, 1670 in Greenland, New Hampshire, and died 1714. He married MARY NEAL October 10, 1689 in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, daughter of CAPT NEAL and MARY.
Notes for WILLIAM PHILBROOK:
He and his wife united with the Church in Greenland when it was organized in July 1706. They had seven children.
It seems evident that the name, although spelled Philbrick, was pronounced Philbrook and quite a number of the grandchildren of Thomas, the emigrant spelled it as it was pronounced. In 1720 Jedediah, one of the oldest and intelligent of the family spelled his name Philbrook. Hammett Papers No. III p. 109
2. JONATHAN4 PHILBROOK (WILLIAM3, THOMAS2, THOMAS1) was born 1694 in Greenland, New Hampshire. He married ELIZABETH WIDDER 1716, daughter of SAMUEL WHIDDEN and MARY COTE.
Notes for JONATHAN PHILBROOK:
In 1743 he removed to Long Reach on the Kennebec and built a garrison house which sheltered four families in the Indian Wars. He and his sons built vessels there. Their shipyard was near the spot where the Custom House in Bath now stands.
3. JOB5 PHILBROOK (JONATHAN4, WILLIAM3, THOMAS2, THOMAS1) was born 1729 in Maine, and died September 16, 1814. He married (1) DOLLY HINCKLY. He married (2) HANNAH COOMBS. He married (3) MARY TRUFANT 1752.
Notes for JOB PHILBROOK:
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.
