I have traced my own line back to Nathaniel Hersey b/1570 in Reading England.My sources are varied, most from Hersey Family researchers. I believe the info on Leverette came from a distant cousin. Leverette descends from Samuel and I descend from Samuel's brother Levi. Much info originated with "Mayflower Families through 5 generations vol 14, Planters and Pioneers, Nova Scotia 1749-1775, Abington MA Vital Records,Hingham MA Historical Society" Most info on the Herseys came from History of Hingham, The Genealogies, Hingham MA."I am searching for more information on Samuel & Lydia and the New Brunswick descendants.
