Hello David, I don't remember if we have corresponded before, but I am a descendant of Nicholas Pullen and Mary Tucker of Rehoboth, MA.I have been researching the family for about 14 years.
According to a Mr. Pullen who lived in Oregon and had researched for many years, the parents of our Nicholas were John Pullen and Anstis Dabney.This couple was married on Oct 24, 1682 in Widworthy Parish, Devonshire, England.They had a son, Nicholas, who was born/christened in 1683 in Widworthy Parish.Mr. Pullen said he had hired an british researcher to retrieve this information.I have not proven it myself.
I also have a Pullen Family Website at: www.familytreemaker.com/users/g/u/r/Sarah-Gura
I do have some Sylvesters in my database.They were related to the Pullens in Maine.
