Jonathan Ober (1739-Beverly,MA) is our 5xGGF. He was an apparently talented and respected housewright residing in Gloucester. He married Sarah Witt(e), d/o Mathew and Susan [Creek] Witt(e). We are related through his daughter Lydia [Ober] Knowles, who married Thomas Knowles III.
We know virtually nothing about this family and the issue that comprised it. One spinster daughter, Sarah Ober, apparently died in abt 1846, having committed suicide.
Anyone that can help, it will be greatly appreciated. Stephen http://MyArnolds.comhttp://MyArnolds.com
