      The family of Jacob Furbish was obtained from a manuscript at the New England Historical and Genealogical Society in Boston. The manuscript was compiled by Frederick Baker Furbish in the late 1800s and early 1900s for a genealogy he was compiling (The Descendents of William Furbish/Furbush). In the manuscript is all of his correspondence and among these was a letter from a descendent of Jacob Furbish (George Washington Furbish) who names the five sons but only two daughters one of whom he couldn’t name.
