The descendents of Ham (1 Chr 1:8-1:8)

“The descendents of Ham were Cush, Egypt, Put, and Canaan.”

Once again, either depending on Genesis, chapter 10, or as a contemporary work of this priestly description, we have the 4 sons of Ham. There will be more information about their children because these are going to be close neighbors of the Israelites. Ham was associated with Africa and parts of Asia. His sons will all become important and have their sons listed, except for Put, who has been associated with Libya and perhaps the Copts. Once again, a source for some folklore about the family of Ham would be the Book of Jubilees (60-150 BCE)
