Re: Joining Mayflower Society
Hi, Cousin Brenda, just went through experience like yours, finding an ancestor who is the wrong brother, sister, cousin to a Mayflower Descendent.My husband's great grandfather x ?, Ebenezer Woodbury married to Hannah Dodge had a sister Elizabeth Thorndike whose daughter Elizabeth married David Alden, descended from John Alden, Priscilla Mullins, the Love Brewster line, and the line of Constant Southworth, the stepson of Gov. Bradford.Constant followed his Mother to Plymouth on the 1628 Mayflower voyage. This information was on a Tenney website, and I didn't even doublecheck the source today.
Well, good news is I found a fourth cousin on my own Mother's lineage, and I am already friends with his first cousin (whose name I share.)I wasn't looking, just came across a Message Board posting on the family name.LD
