comments

A birth date of 6/12/1636 and place of New London, CT was found in the Geni profile and removed June 2014 (the FindAGrave site has the New London CT place with a 1637 birth date). This is unsupported by the research done thus far, which indicates birth "before" her parents arrival in Massachusetts and after a marriage (record not found) of 1636. Savage had written that the oldest two children, Ann & Robert, were born prior to emigration.

Older sources may be unreliable about origins in England / Scotland, Recent DNA testing rules out her father as a member of the famous Douglas of Douglas clan in Scotland, or of the Douglas of Morton family in England. See his profile for details - Dea. William Douglas - and read any referenced sites keeping that DNA testing in mind.
