Re: Joining Mayflower Society
I always seem to be "so close" and yet "so far away" when it comes to my direct descent from a Mayflower ancestor.
Here are some of my direct ancestors that I would have thought that somehow I could have found a line through, but so far, only close, and that doesn't get me into the Mayflower Society....
I descend from William Knowlton and Elizabeth Balch through their son John Knowlton who married Bethia Edwards. The next Knowlton generation is John Knowlton who married Abigail Batchelder.Next generation is John Knowlton who married Elizabeth Hilton.Next generation is John Knowlton who married Lucy (maiden name unknown).Next generation is Abraham Knowlton and his wife Anna Taylor.Next generation is Anna Knowlton and her husband Mark Saxby.Then it turns into Saxby and Burlingham/Burlingame.
Behind all of those lines are Richard Thissel and his wife Martha Thorndike; Richard Peters and his wife Ruth (maiden name unknown);James Taylor and Charity Whittridge; John Bakcer and Sarah Herrick; Peter Woodbury and Sarah Dodge; Joseph Herrick and Sarah Leach; John Trask and Abigail Parkman; Cornelius Baker and Hannah Woodbury; William Livermore and Elizabeth (maiden name unknown.)
I do have Richard Thissel and Elizabeth Patch and quite a few of the surnames you list, but cannot find any direct line to Mayflower ancestors.I'll be GLAD to reward you generously if you can help me....
