Our flesh to see the dust

Jesse Wyman, son of Zebadiah Wyman and Abigail Pierce, was born on 18 March 1736/7 in Woburn, Massachusetts (in what is now the town of Billerica).  He married Abigail Johnson, daughter of Samuel Johnson and Priscilla Emery, on 18 September 1764 in Woburn, Massachusetts.  

Zebadiah Wyman was the son of Benjamin Wyman and Elizabeth Hancock.  Benjamin's brother Nathaniel (1665 - 1717) was my 8th great grandfather.  That makes Jesse Wyman my second cousin 9 generations removed.
