Jonathan Bumpus, b. ca 1769, m. Martha Chubbuck, born and died Wareham. He died there 5 Feb 1847. His wife’s parents unknown to me. Their son Rowland is my 4th great-grandfather and he stayed in Wareham except for a time in California during the Gold Rush. I descend through Rowland’s daughter Mary who married Seth Washburn and moved to Plymouth.
Martha Chubbuck was born Wareham 29 Feb 1764, but whose parents I have not discovered. Which of course drives me crazy! She married Jonathan Bumpus and they raised their family in Wareham. She died there 5 April 1845.
David Pierce born Middleborough, Plymouth County 22 June 1773 to Jesse and Ruth (Perkins) Pierce. He married Desire Nye 8 Oct 1795 at Wareham (daughter of Jabez and Mary (Fuller) Nye. I descend through David and Desire’s daughter Lucy Nye Pierce who married Rowland Bumpus 1825 at Wareham. Lucy married second Brownell Tripp in 1861 at Acushnet, Bristol County and third Josiah Burnham at Acushnet in 1880. Lucy died at Acushnet 29 June 1896.
One of my favorite Wareham resources is Glimpses of Early Wareham, by Daisy Washburn Lovell, Wareham Historical Society, 1970.
