INTERESTING INFO:
A fellow genealogy researcher in California, Jim Farmer has this to say as he was researching his Farmer Line. “Captain Henry Isham came to America with a grown daughter who married John Farmer at Bermuda Hundred, Henrico County, VA by 1656. This Isham daughter and John Farmer soon had three children: Henry Farmer (b1657), Phoebe Worsham, and Frances Elam. I was also surprised to see that the Belchers used not only the name Isham but also the name Phebe, just like the Farmers, Worshams, and Elams. Since then, I have seen the Henrico deposition showing John Belcher just like Henry Farmer, and I have found ongoing records for the Belchers and Farmers living as neighbors, which supports the fact that they were probably cousins. The name of John Farmer is a derived name. It appears in no record, but each of his children used the name and it is the name of his grandfather. Henrico depositions give Henry Farmer and John Belcher very close ages, “ It is likely that John Farmer and Robert Belcher married sisters. Isham, Bartley, and Phoebe are names that shows up throughout the Belcher line.

Phoebe Isham is the half sister of Mary Isham daughter of Henry Isham and second wife Katherine Banks: Mary married William Randolph. Mary and William Randolph were the parents of Isham Randolph. Isham Randolph married Jane Rogers. Jane and Isham Randolph were the parents of Jane Randolph.
Jane Randolph married Peter Jefferson. Jane and Peter Jefferson were the parents of Thomas Jefferson, President of the USA
