Yarmouth was not a town in 1619, nor were any on the Cape. The pilgrims came over in Nov of 1620. Check the dates or places.

Thanks for commenting.

I believe you may have misread the profile. The profile states that Richard Taylor was born in 1619 at Pennington Castle, Cumberland, England and died circa December 13, 1673 at Yarmouth, Barnstable, Massachusetts. It also says that he was buried at Yarmouth. I think you might have looked quickly and confused the place of burial/current location line with the birth information lines.

Here is a screencap with dividing lines added in, so you can more easily see how the information is laid out:

It looks like you're a manager on that profile, so if you ever find anything else about which you're concerned, you can make the necessary edits. Good luck!
