Eldred family

Hello, I`m very new to this site so may not be using it correctly.

I came across an entry for William Eldred, whom I believe to be my 8th GGF. The entry sems to have your username by it and suggests that you created it. You are certainly watching it.

Could we share info on this person and related familes?

my e-mail is

Jonathan Sheldon


I just noticed that you have Johnathan Sheldon (b. 1687)as the son of Isaac Sheldon and Mary Woodford (died 1684). However, Johnathan was the son of Isaac and Mehitable (Gunn), who married in 1686. I have added Mehitable and her son by Isaac, but have not removed your Johnathan. You may want to review that.

Best wishes, gunnj

Thomas Delano m Rebecca or Mary Alden? [5 March 2008]

There seems to have been some discussion and disagreement on which of the Alden daughters is Thomas' wife. I've been skimming stuff and it looks like Savage has it as Mary but more recent scholarship has it as Rebecca. I just ran into this yesterday, was wondering if you had spent time on the issue.

Sarah (Tilden) Sutton - incorrect husband [7 February 2010]

I notice that you are watching page Family:John Sutton and Sarah Tilden (1) . According to Torrey, Sarah Tilden married George Sutton (also reflected in WeRelate), not John Sutton. John Sutton married Julian.

I have sent a message to NPowell, who is also watching the same page, as well as the pages of the children of this marriage, indicating the following:

Being new to WeRelate, I don't feel completely comfortable cleaning up these families. I believe that the children need to be merged (where not already done) and linked to the one family of George Sutton and Sarah Tilden, and then the family page for John Sutton and Sarah Tilden needs to be deleted. Once the family page is deleted, I'm not sure if the person pages for John Sutton and Sarah Tilden also need to be edited to remove the link to the family.

Once this is cleaned up, I can add John Sutton's wife Julian.

If I do not hear back within a week or two, I may try to clean up the pages myself - but I wanted to give you a heads-up of what I think needs doing.

Lynn - Let me know if you would rather do the clean-up yourself (since it will involve merging children) if I don't hear back from NPowell.--DataAnalyst 09:42, 31 January 2010 (EST)

I have finished merging the George Sutton/Sarah Tilden and John Sutton/Sarah Tilden families. I believe I left the George Sutton/Sarah Tilden family intact and as correct as it was before, and didn't leave any orphan pages. I also added John Sutton's correct wife. --DataAnalyst 17:06, 7 February 2010 (EST)

Elizabeth Hawkins [14 March 2010]

I'm new to this so not sure I'm doing this right but I'll try. You created a record for Elizabeth Hawkins born about 1666 in Boston. I have an Elizabeth Hawkins in my family tree who married Benjamin Turner on 14 Apr 1692 in Scituate, MA. The Mayflower Society has records of the marriage and that Elizabet lived to somewhere in 1740-1744 (MFIP Brewster 29) and that she was from Boston. Not sure what I should do now. Can we assume they are same person? Ages work out right (would have been married at age ~28) and none of info conflicts (but none confirms either)--Sparrell 22:16, 13 March 2010 (EST)

See Sparrell's talk page for a continuation of this topic. --DataAnalyst 12:38, 14 March 2010 (EDT)

Samuel Nash [29 May 2012]

Hello, I read with interest your following entry about the Sam Nash, Tom Simons and Gilbert Brooks.

Thomas was Servant to Dr Samuel Fuller of Plymouth. The Old Court Record of Plymouth, April 1649, records a complaint against Samuel Nash of Duxbury, that ... Thomas was Servant to Dr Samuel Fuller of Plymouth. The Old Court Record of Plymouth, April 1649, records a complaint against Samuel Nash of Duxbury, that his land was not all fenced and his cattle had run loose. Thomas Simon of Scituate (age 49), Samuel's brother-in-law (having married Samuel's sister Elizabeth) testified that he helped Nash build a fence over two years ago, and that his son-in-law Gilbert Brooks assisted.

My wife is a ninth generation descendant of Gilbert Brooks through his daughter Hannah who married Robert Crossman, Jr, and their daughter Elizabeth Crossman who married Francis Luscombe, etc.

I have just gone through all 12 vols of the Shurtleff & Pulsifer 12 volumes of the Plymouth Colony Records and cannot find the entry you shared. I went through each volume and the indexes, but could not find any entry for April 1649. Could I trouble you to give me your source or a direct quote of this entry. Does it give the name of the person who made the complaint.

Thank you very much for having taken the time to share this information, it is very useful.
