Just a slight divergence from brain science for a second so I can put down in writing one of my genealogical histories.
Priscilla Mullins was on the mayflower with her Mom Alice Atwood and dad William Mullins (who died the year the boat landed in the great sickness)
She married John Alden, who also arrived on the first mayflower voyage.
John Allen won Priscilla from another suiter and another Mayflower Pilgrim, Myles Standish, another distant relative of ours through the DeWolf/Kirtland line on You grandma’ carrie’s mom’s side.
Myles Standish is not the proven father of Thomas Standish, however, so this case isn’t as strong…
Back to John Allen and Priscilla Mullins, they had a daughter Elizabeth in 1624
Elizabeth m. William Pabodie
daught. Hanna Rogers m. Lt. Samuel Bradford
daught. Jerusha Bradford m. Reverend Ebineezer Gay
son. Martin Gay in 1728 m Mary Pinckney
MARTIN GAY is a proven descendant from the mayflower, according to to a document “Mayflower births and deaths, Vol. 1 and 2
So Martin Gay and Mark Pinckney’s Daughter, Mary Gay, is a mayflower descendant:
daught. Amelia Seabury Black, the mother of Grampy’s Grandfather Samuel J Mathewson,
and the wife of James A Mathewson from this picture
so…. Amelia Seabury Black m. James A Mathewson
s. Samuel J Mathewson m. Carrie Louise Smith
s. Clive Mathewson m. Anne Lyle Wallace
s. William Wallace Mathewson m. Mary Fayre Tremain
s. Bruce Mathewson m. Michele Siderson
