My Mayflower Connections - 6. William Brewster

...
Several genea-bloggers are listing their Mayflower passenger connections as a Thanksgiving meme, so I'll join in. I'm going to do a post for each known Mayflower ancestor, rather than list them all at once.

Next up is William Brewster, from whom I have one ancestral line:

Line 1:

1.  William Brewster* (1567-1644) married before 1593 to Mary --?--* (1569-1627)
2.  Patience Brewster (1595-1634) married 1624 to Thomas Prence (1600-1673)
3.  Mercy Prence (1631-1711) married 1650 to John Freeman (1627-1719)
4.  Bennett Freeman (1671-1716) married 1689 to John Paine (1661-1731)
5.  Elizabeth Paine (1702-1772) married 1720 to Jabez Snow (1696-1760)
6. Eunice Snow (1722-????) married 1742 to Nathaniel Horton (1721-1775)
7. Hannah Horton (1761-1797) married 1782 to Thomas Dill (1755-1830)
8. Elizabeth Horton Dill (1791-1869) married 1826 to Alpheus B. Smith (1802-1840)
9. Lucretia Townsend Smith (1828-1884) married 1851 to Isaac Seaver (1823-1901)
10. Frank Walton Seaver (1852-1922) married 1874 to Harriet Louisa Hildreth (1857-1920)
11. Frederick Walton Seaver (1876-1942) married 1900 to Alma Bessie Richmond (1882-1962)
12. Frederick Walton Seaver (1911-1983) married 1942 to Betty Virginia Carringer (1919-2002)
13. Randall J. Seaver

* William Brewster and  his wife Mary were on the Mayflower sailing from Plymouth, England to Massachusetts Bay in late 1620.
Are there any readers who are my cousins through a William Brewster line? Please let me know what our most recent common ancestors are in our Brewster lines.

You can see all Mayflower lines posted so far by genea-bloggers in Heather Wilkinson Rojo's blog post, My Mayflower Passenger Ancestors.

Hi cousin! My Brewster connection is from John Freeman and Mercy Prence's son Edmund. Probably also related to Jabez Snow in a further generation. :-)

Hey, I'm also a cousin through John and Mercy's son Edmund.

I don't often see cousins from three+ generations below the original passenger. SaraG, I'd love to compare notes sometime to see how far down our common line goes!
