Is Joseph PERRY, b. 28 May 1719 Scituate and m. Abigail FORD 1757 Marshfield, the same man as Job PERRY of So. Thomaston, ME? They seem to have had the same wives and the same children. Records on Job in ME show that he was from Marshfield, MA. All ME records call him Job; all MA records call him Joseph. So many facts overlap that they are either the same man or this is one truly huge coincidence. (Among his sons in ME are Joseph, Job II, William.) I posted this query to a Rockland newspaper years ago and received a reply postmarked Union, ME, stating that Job and Joseph are indeed the same man. However, there was no signature, no return address, and no documentation. Advice, anyone?
