I am seeking further information on Nancy DUNLAP and her husband, Perkins HOWE, specifically information concerning Nancy’s parentage.Known information follows; many of the published sources (and internet trees relaying upon them) treat this family sparsely and/or incorrectly; the following capsule is based on personal research in town records and is believed to be fully accurate.All seven children of the family who lived to adulthood had issue; accordingly, there are likely many descendants of this couple.All the children remained in Central and Western Massachusetts, although later generations likely moved elsewhere.Corrections, comments, etc. are welcome.
