You mentioned that you descend from Samuel Platts Gawkroger, the youngest child of James and Martha. Do you have dates for all the Gawkroger children?According to my records (which could be totally off), Samuel Platts was b. 10 Jan 1616/17 in Sowerby, Yorkshire, England, and died in Rowley, Essex, MA.But then I also have Isaac, b. 2 Jul 1620 and Esther, b. 12 Mar 1622/23, both in Sowerby.
Do you have any info on Martha's parents?All I have is her father, Robert HAYNEWORTH (no dates/locations).
I descend from Martha's sister, Mary GAWKROGER PLATT, b. 7 Feb 1606/07 also in Sowerby.I would be happy to swap info with you on all of their descendants.
