  3.   Bradford says Stephen and Elizabeth had four daughters at Plymouth, which are accounted for by Deborah, Damaris, Ruth, and Elizabeth. Some thought there was only one Damaris, requiring another daughter who died young, but the Damaris who married Jacob Cooke was much younger than the Mayflower passenger.
