My earliest ancestors in America are George Soule, Richard Warren, and Francis Cooke of the Mayflower through Richard Wright who married Hestor Cooke. My mother was a Wright and I am the great great great grandson of Weston Wright of Carver Plymouth who left New Hampshire after marrying Olive Batchelder, for Ontario. He has many descendents here. I am in Hamilton Ontario and would gladly corespond with anyone on this subject.

How early is she? Does she appear in the Silver books? What about the Plymouth vital records?

I have a number of Mayflower lines, through Francis and John Cooke, Richard Warren. I'm interested in finding a Sarah Rogers that was supposedly in the Plymouth Colony early, yet doesn't appear to come through Thomas Rogers. Is there someone who has information on any other Rogers families in early Plymouth?

But see I have read all the famliy stories and ancestory records on ancestry and libries and mayflower association things .. that I can get .. on the Aldens and duxbury Mass. And john was friends with his neighbors then it seems as all became friends . meaning the families that moved into his neighboorhood. Their children began to marry each others children... then it seemed as thought for a period ... The aldens and the neighbors had inter married. most famlies were at least 5 .. everyone in the area seems to have married a neighboors child. The Aldens have Whites , Standish, Bass.Packards Thayers Holmes and howlands and adams, its amazing that they seemed to get along fairly well according to the records from duxbury ...

Hi Group,

My grandfather Pail Lawerance Cole family came to America on Mayflower. I have them traced back to1150 Cornwall, England. My Granfather Cole lived in Wellsburg, Wva.

I've just recently got serious about our genealogy, but have realized I'm a direct decendant of Stephen Hopkins and wife Elizabeth Fisher through their daughter Deborah Hopkins. Unless something comes up from a distant cousins line, they are the only Mayflower passengers and my only line to the pilgrims.

Leah, are you Hutchinsons connected to the Hutchinson Family Singers?
Comment by Joan Foster on September 5, 2009 at 11:05am
Leah, Was one of your Anne Hutchinson followers Capt John Underhill? He was my 7Ggrandfather, eventually to Long Island (Oysterbay).
Comment by Leah on September 5, 2009 at 12:04am
My direct Mayflower connections are William Brewster (via son Jonathan), John Howland and Elizabeth Tilley (via son John and daughters Hope and Elizabeth), and Stephen Hopkins and Elizabeth Fisher (via daughter Deborah). I also connect to Edward and Gilbert Winslow via their brother Kenelm and indirectly connect to Myles Standish.
However, most of my 17th Century New England connections are in Newbury and Newburyport, MA and Rhode Island (they were followers of Anne Hutchinson).
