Traditionally, Mayflower passenger Thomas Rogers has been credited with one wife - Alice Cosford, married in 1597, who was the mother of his six children. But recently, while updating the Wikipedia article for Thomas Rogers, I noted that in Eugene Stratton's book "Plymouth Colony Its History & People 1620-1691" pages 345-346, there is no mention of his wife Alice. But for the 1622 poll tax list for Leiden Holland, where his family remained when Thomas and son Joseph traveled on the Mayflower, there is an Elizabeth (Elsgen) listed with his 3 children remaining in Leiden - John, Lysbeth (Elizabeth) and Grietgen (Margaret). The three children later came to Plymouth but not the step-mother(?) Elizabeth. Questions about this finding - - did Alice die before 1620 and Thomas remarry a Dutch(?)woman named 'Elizabeth/Elsgen'? - did the step-mother(?) Elizabeth die before the 3 children came to Plymouth about 1630?
Appreciate hearing from anyone about what might have happened to Thomas' wife Alice and if there is more information available on Elizabeth/Elsgen.
