    'JOANNA, baptized Scituate, MA 9 November 1645 (Register 57[1903]:82); died Plymouth, MA June 1728 "in ye 83d year of her age" (gravestone, Burial Hill, Plymouth) ...; married Plymouth 22 December 1664 (PCR 8:25) GEORGE MORTON, born say 1645, died Plymouth, MA 2 August 1727 "in ye 82d year of his age" (gravestone, Burial Hill, Plymouth), son of Ephraim ([son of] George) and Ann (Cooper) Morton.'

  2. Source:Savage, James. Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England, 3:244, describes George as the son, "perhaps eldest", of Ephraim. Normally, would expect George to be born bef. 1643 based on assumption he was of legal age when he married in 1664, but as his parents married in Nov 1644, perhaps not... Ephraim b. 1648, so assume abt. 1646.
