One of my immigrant ancestors was John Burrage.This is what Charles Henry Pope's "Pioneers of Massachusetts" says about him:

Dec. 25, 1680.Children: Mary bapt. 8 (3) 1641, (m. John Marshall), Hannah b. 14 (10) 1643 (m. John French), John, age 22 in 1668, Elizabeth (m. Thomas Deane) Nathaniel, b. 1655, d, 1656, William b.

I'd be interestedin hearing from anyone else who shares these ancestors.
