She is not the daughter of Rev. Obadiah Holmes and Catherine Hyde. Their daughter Martha was born at Newport,RI on May 13,1640 (much too late to be the mother of Wilbore children born in the early 1650's), and she married John Odlin.
Based on birthdates of her children, this Martha must have been born about 1635, or earlier.
Obadiah Holmes mentions a daughter Martha Odlin in his will of 1782. William Wilbore lived until 1710, and John Odlin lived until 1711. William Wilbore and John Odlin had children whose dates of birth overlapped. The conclusion is that John Odlin and William Wilbore married two different women, each by the name of Martha Holmes.
At this point, the parentage of this Martha Holmes is not certain. In fact, she may not have been a Holmes.
Children: Mary Wilbore Mowry, Joseph Wilbore, John Wilbore, Thomas Wilbore, William Wilbor, Martha Wilbore Sherman, Samuel Wilbore, Daniel Wilbore, Joanna Wilbore Potter, and Benjamin Wilbore.
