His father was John Tarbox and his mother was Rebekah Andrews. His first wife was Rebekah Armitage. She owned and had control of her inheritance from her grandmother Sarah Webb.

He was named after his dad as the first born. I am descended from Jonathan Tarbox of Lynn,Mass, born 1668 and married to Elinor (last name unknown), who was also later later married to John Gott. Godfrey was son of Jonathan m. Hannah Leighton. Godfrey died in Hebron, Conn. in 1768. He had a sister Experience Tarbox, a sister Hannah Tarbox that married John Gott(Jr?), Mary who married Nathaniel Root, Sarah that married Jonathan Root.
