See third paragraph. It says that Thomas also had a son named Archibald, from whom I descended. I am thinking that this 1956document is wrong because it uses the phrase "It is thought that great grandfather...," which implies that the author was not sure. Also, my ancestory is documented much more thoroughly by at:
My picture is at the bottom and my line of ancestry is above the picture. Nevertheless, I would like to learn more of Thomas because he might be John Ruddell's (b. 1695) father because Thomas had a son named John and they named their children similarly names (Cornelius, George and John) and were living at the same time. Thomas must be older than John since John was only 5 years old when the ship arrived. Do you have any information about Thomas's son John's descendents?
