I am a descendant of several of the Vineyard families, namely CATHCART. Robert Gershom CATHCART is my 7th great grandfather. I have read a wonderful transcription on the web of 'The History of Martha's Vineyard by Dr Charles Banks' Volume III Family Genealogies: pp 69-71 and pp 20-27 ( as well as several other pages). I am a little confused as per The Cathcart Family "1. Robert CATHCART m Phebe COLEMAN abt 1691 dau. of John and Joanna (FOLGER) COLEMAN of Nantucket who was b 15 June 1674." and The Athearn Family "10. Samuel ..... m 16 Sept 1719 Mrs Phoebe (COLEMAN) CATHCART (wid. of Robert CATHCART) (1) and dau of John and Phoebe (STARBUCK) COLEMAN of Nantucket, who d bef 24 Nov 1739." I am confused as to who Phoebe COLEMAN'S parents were. I do have a COLEMAN & STARBUCK connection in my family tree program but the John COLEMAN I have b 2 Aug 1667 m Priscilla STARBUCK 1694 b 1676 d 1762. I know that a lot of the 'island' mariages were intertwined and am hoping that you may be able to help me to decipher my riddle. Thank you so very much for your time.
