Swansea, Mass. vital records "Jeremiah Olmsbery married Nov. 2, 1705, Mahitabel Willmarth" It would appear that Jeremiah's first wife must have died some time prior to 1740, and that he married about that time Persis. His last child is recorded as having been born to Jeremiah Ormsby and Persis. Jeremiah must have died prior to 1757, for in Attleboro, Mass. vital records is recorded; married Persis (Perces) Ormsbee, widow, to Daniel Chaffee, Oct. 15, 1757.

thomas wilmarth married mary robinson on 6/7/1674.
thomas later married rachel read on 6/27/1678
there were at least three children:
Mary b. 12/29/1678
Anne b. 8/22/1679-80
Mehibel(sic) b. 3/4/1681
I've verified this through rehoboth records
There appears to be some conflicting information on Mehitable Ormsby. Mehitable Ormsby born 1710 wis linked to the Jolls Family. Mehitable Ormsbee born 1705 is linked to the Fuller Family.

Thanks Mary Jean. You have added some information and confirmed some information for me. I am descended from Mehetable's child Jacob Ormsby b Sep 19, 1715, Rehobeth, Bristol Mass. Do you know if the book you cited by David W. Hoyt is available anywhere? Do you confirm Thomas Wilmarth wife as Mary Robinson? Thanks again for the responce.
Note: Father's name erroneously given as "Timothy" in Arnold's VRs. Plymouth Colony Records correctly has father's name as "Thomas".
Note: Rehoboth marriage intentions: Ormsbee, Jeremiah and Mehittabell
Willmarth, both of Rehoboth.
