                                MAYFLOWER PAGE -Stephen Hopkins

Since we are now officially a Mayflower Family, I thought I would devote a page to information about this wonderful event in our lives.  Below, you will see a copy of the certificate I received from the Society of Mayflower Descendants.  Double click on it to enlarge.  By way of their acceptance of the documentation I submitted, they are saying that I have proven our lineage back to the Pilgrim, Stephen Hopkins.

The documentation consisted of as many birth, death and marriage certificates as I could get.  If I couldn't find that, I could submit something else that showed a connection from child to parent.  The lineage goes as follows with the persons in the direct line numbered (Those not numbered are spouses).

Of the above folks, we have a great-grandmother who goes back to more Mayflower passengers.  That is Hannah Cobb.  She is a direct descendant of John Howland his wife Elizabeth Tilley and her father John Tilley.  All three came over on the Mayflower.  So we, too, are direct descendants of the same three Pilgrims.  However, I have not "proven" this line yet.

A great site to research the Mayflower is Caleb Johnson's site.  By the way, we are related to Caleb through Ruth Sprague.  Go take a look at his site by clicking here.

 

I am going to have a page of documentation, so that those who wish, can copy items, like death certificates, letters from Milbridge Town Hall, etc. for their own records.  It may be a while.  I will let you know.
