    ADD'L SOURCE INFO: Book...THE WHITCOMB FAMILY IN AMERICA, A Biographical Genealogy, by Charlotte Whitcomb, (1904). Pages #396, 397.

    Josiah Whitcomb, was born in Dorchester, Mass., in 1638, according to Dorchester town records, and is believed to have been the youngest son of John. He accompanied his father's family from Scituate to Lancaster, Mass., in 1654, and his name appears variously in the early records of life in the new town. In 1688 he was granted a bounty for killing a wolf, and again he was named with his brother Job in an action for damages for accidentally or otherwise injuring or killing swine. (See page 32, this Book.) ["Josiah Whitcomb is allowed 20 shillings to be paid by the County for killing one growne wolfe in ye Towne of Lancaster." - (Nourse's Early Records of Lancaster: p. 124.)]. During Queen Ann's war (1702-17) he was allowed a garrison for protection against the Indians. This garrison was situated in what is now called Bolton, originally a part of Lancaster, but set off in 1738, and he lived in the southeastern part of this Bolton. He was commander of the garrison and with him were associated his sons, Josiah, David, and Hezekiah, his son-in-law, Jacob Houghton, also Henry Houghton and John Wilder, Jr. In 1705 he was selectman; in 1708 he and twenty-nine others signed the church covenant and, as he was financially in good circumstances, he contributed liberally towards the support of the church; in 1710 he was elected to represent Lancaster in the General Court. In his will drawn March 20, 1718, he gave to each of his children one-eighth part of his right to land in the plantation of Littleton. His widow, who survived him eight years, died in 1726. Though Jonathan's recorded posterity is, numerically, the largest of the sons of John, there is reason to believe Josiah's posterity is at least as numerous. The tabulated records of Josiah's descendants nearly equal those of Jonathan, while those which are known to exist, but which are not yet obtained, outnumber the corresponding class in any other line.
