  • Notes 
    • It is notable that Peter Morse and Sarah Ransom were descended from different Mayflower passengers -- Peter from Stephen Hopkins and Sarah from Degory Priest. Thus, all descendants of this marriage are descended from two Mayflower passengers. Stephen Hopkins was also in Jamestown, Virginia from 1610 - 1614.
