The Vital Records of Nantucket list four daughters of William J Pinkham and Phebe Cox: Caroline, b 7 Sep 1843; Lydia C, b 17 Nov 1845; Elizabeth P., b 11 Mar 1849; Mary Ann b ?. William was born 24 Sep 1808. It is unclear whether he was born in Nantucket, but the fact that he is recorded leaves that open for consideration. Under the listing of his birth is the comment "Live in Flushing, L. I." There is no entry for the marriage of William and Phebe, so likely they were already in New York, and that is where their children were probably born.
