  • Notes 
    • Emigrated on the Mayflower, 1620. Ancestral Lines (citation details below): "He was one of ten men (with his brother Edward) in the first encounter with the Indians on 8 Dec. 1620, and was sixteenth of forty-one signers of the Mayflower Compact. More than half of the 101 passengers died during the first winter from a disease possibly similar to scurvy, and he and his wife were among the dead. Their only child in Plymouth was taken into the household of Governor John Carver, which upon his death became the household of John1 Howland."
