Issue regarding parents of James Case LHPJ-LMH
I've always believed that James parents were Josiah Case and Esther (or Hester) Higley. This was based on a handwritten notebook given to my father (Carson) by Grace (Irwin) Linehan in the 1950s. She headed her information with "Noting from my book of Case genealogy". In the notebook she traces the decendants of William Case (2nd son of John Case) and Elizabeth Holcomb as follows: James 3rd child of 7 b 3-12-1693 m Esther Fithin in 1715. Their 2nd child (of 7) was Josiah b April 1718 and m Esther Higley abt 1740. Their 2nd child was James b April 2, 1744. His 1st wife was Phebe Tuller (d 1776) and 2nd wife Lydia Case daughter of Noah Case and Myriam Holcomb. Their 6th child was Wareham, born 1787 in Otis MA. James died 1822 in Otis.
When Grace says "my book" I assume she means a book she owns rather than a book she wrote.
I would appreciate any clarification you can give me.
