I am just beginning to research my Pinkham Family lines. According to my grandmother's notes, my line goes from a Richard Pinkham (wife's name may have been Julia)to a son, John Pinkham b. 8/19/1644 in Dover, NH, m. to either Rose Otis or Martha Otis (or both); to a son Otis Pinkham b. 1694/5 in Durham, NH, m. to Abigail Tibbetts (Tebbetts). Otis had a son, Abijah b. 2/9/1734 in Dover, NH, m. in 1753 to Rachel Huckins; they had a son Abijah, b. 7/22/1763 who m. Sarah Spencer 12/11/1783
I believe that three of Abijah's daughters were married to Russells: 1)Margery to Rev. George Washington Russell 10/24/1822; 2) Abigail to Joseph Russell 4/27/1820; and 3) Pamelia to Peter Russell 5/20/1833.
I copied some pages from a book entitled "The Pinkham Family of Dover Neck, NH; this book does not list Abijah (b.2/9/1734) as a son of Otis. Either my notes are incorrect or the book is not accurate.
I am also not certain that the Pamelia who married Peter Russell is a daughter of Abijah; there are some reports that her father may have been Thomas Pinkham, not sure of mother.
I would certainly appreciate Martin or anyone providing me with any information or suggestions for next steps.
Thanks, Al Joy
