Descendants of Job Philbrook

Generation No. 1

1. 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:
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.

She married ROBERT SHANNON December 28, 1854 in in Ohio, son of REV_JOHN SHANNON and KEZIOLA ROGERS.

Notes for SUSANNAH PERMELIA BESSE:
The following was compiled by Mildred Barnes Sep - Oct 1979. Her informants were Birdie Swartz and Bob Shannon (which one is unknown)

Robert and Susan Besse Shannon came to Kansas from Licking County Ohio by was of Iowa (lived there a short time, we do not know the area) before 1870. Crossed the Missouri River by ferry at White Cloud - swam the livestock across. Settled west of Hiawatha in 1871. Brown county began 1855.

Aunt Birdie says she visited the home and stood in the room where her grandmother (Susan Besse Shannon) was born in Sumpter, Ohio. The house is no longer standing and I can find no town of this name. It was near Columbus. Aunt Birdie visited the area around Columbus when she went with Maurice Shannon to see Aunt Cora at Raymond, Ohio in 1935.

All we know about Susan's brothers and sisters is that there was a sister Jerushy who married a man named Price. Robert had a brother Joe and he never knew where he settled. A brother Dave (probably younger) owned and lived on what is now the townsite of Willis ( a small town between Horton and Hiawatha).

A brother Dave (probably younger) owned and lived on what is now the townsite of Willis ( a small town between Horton and Hiawatha).

Dave's children:

Nellie who married Fred Wilson from Davenport, Nebraska. their son Herbert was a school principal at Freedonia, Kansas. They had 2 sons, moved to California (Herbert used to visit Brown County Kansas occasionally).
Cora & Alto who moved to Washington State.
George who at one time worked for Oscar B. Moved to Washington State. Sheriff in Longview - Kelso area.

The Grandfather Robert Shannon had been a wagon maker in Ohio. His father (Reverand John Shannon, b. 1790) was a circuit rider - preacher (Camellite Minister). In Brown County he farmed and bought land at every opportunity. It is said that when he died he was worth around $100,000 (a lot in those days). Each of the nine children inherited $7,500 - $8,000 or the equivalent in land. Our Grandfather, Oscar (Del), got the 40 acres at Hamlin as did Uncle Scott and Uncle Ray (80 acres - poorer land and paid some). Aunt Cora got the house in Hiawatha and some cash. (She had lived with the parents and cared for them).

Dad says that at one time his Grandfather owned land from east of the Hilding Anderson home to the Wolney corner. Dad remembers the grand piano in the farm home and then in town. This house was just east of the Anderson farm. It burned after they moved to town and another rebuilt. He says there was a pump inside the house and there were 2 approaches to the home (circular drive). The barn had a basement that opened at ground level on the South. Horses were there and hay on top. The barn was destroyed by fire too. The farm was sold to Affliclis (possibly Afflidis) and later to Carter Dickinson.

Aunt Birdie remembers the alligator - the stuffed & mounted one in the bedroom - almost afraid to sleep in the room overnight. She remembers the cherry trees, blackberries, turkeys; and fruit & milk stand in the basement of the house. She says the Grandmother was a lovely person, very friendly and had many friends. The Grandfather was more stern. She especially remembers visiting there (eating lunch) when coming from their home in Satellin (sp), then they would visit the Shaws (on the now Dickinson place) and sometimes she & Aunt Hazel would stay all night with Grammie Show in Hiawatha (310 Delaware). There was an organ there.

Dad says after Uncle Ray (the youngest) married the grandparents moved to Hiawatha - 111 Utah. He says he & Uncle John used to leave their horse & buggy there during the day while attending the Academy.
