There has been confusion about Joseph's parentage. Eaton listed Joseph's parents as Job Perry and his third wife, Abigail Ford, of Marshfield, MA, and named others of their children born there. However, a review of Plymouth Co., MA records shows that these documents pertain to a JOSEPH Perry of Marshfield and Scituate, not a Job. (In fact, I find no Job Perry in the area.) Further, the migration of Joseph and Abigail up the coast to Owl's Head can be documented. Finally, Plymouth County Deeds 180:136 settles the matter conclusively. The ancestry of Job Perry's mother, Abigail Ford, can be traced back to Richard Warren of the Mayflower.
