I got your message, thank you. You are correct, there was a generation missing. For your information, I was able to find a second source that mentioned that Christopher Pinkham was the son of John. I got this from among some old papers in my files on the Folgers in which were someexcerps taken from" New England History and Genealogy, Vol 16" published in 1862. Without you help I would never have made this connection. Thanks.
But, this raises many more questions. Maybe you could help
1. Who was the Mary Bunker that was mentioned in Sinnett's book as being the wife of Jonathan?
2. What is known about Hannah Brown and can you explain my confusion about all the Pinkham children born after 1707 and her marriage to Tristram Coffin that same same year? (from the Robert St-Gelais Ged-Com)
3. How reliable is the infomation on Jonathan? (again from the St-Gelais Ged-Com) The children's birth dates from his marriage to Hannah start in 1707 and extend until 1728. He then remarried in 1731 to Margaret Arthur and died four years later in 1735?
Per your request - More on my side of the Pinkham family: ( I have not figured out how to set up a Ged-Com yet so I will just write out the basic information)
