Just checked my listings and I show Joshua born c1721?, married to Ruth ransom, daughter of Joseph Ransom and Jane HUNTLEY. They lived at Lyme CT, Hampden Co. (Palmer?) MA, and Kingston (later Granville VT). So they were movers (or pioneers). Kids: 1) Joseph born 15 June 1761 Lyme CT. 2) Joshua Jr.born c1763. 3) Jabesh 4) Ransomborn c1773.
Jabez's first son was Ransom Carson Beckwith (1791). Other kids were Sybil (1795), Mary Ann (1797), Simeon (1798) and Samuel (1798).
The Ransom name adds another dimension as Jabesh Beckwtih being Jabez Beckwith??
