(Possible Mother) Relationship NoteElijah and Jane Holbrook may have been twins. They were baptized on the same day, and their birth date(s) are not known. Their parentage is also questionable. The "Seven Pierce Families" stated that Samuel and Sarah (Pierce) Holbrook had five children. The Scituate vital records indicated they had eight, if Elijah and Jane were theirs. Scituate provided only the father's name of Samuel for Jane and Elijah, so whether they are the children of Samuel and Sarah who would have been in their mid forties in 1777, or of their son Samuel or even some other Samuel, is uncertain.5,1
