My Mayflower Connections - 4. Francis Cooke

Several geneabloggers 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 Francis Cooke, from whom I have one ancestral line:

Line 1:

1.  Francis Cooke* (1583-1663) married 1603 to Jeanne Hester Mahieu (????-1666)
2. John Cooke* (1607-1695) married 1634 to Sarah Warren (1614-1696)
3. Sarah Cooke (1635-1713) married 1652 to Arthur Hathaway (1630-1711)
4. Hannah Hathaway (1662-1749) married before 1685 to George Cadman (1660-1718)
5. Elizabeth Cadman (1685-1768) married about 1707 to William White (1683-1780)
6. William White (1708-1780) married 1729 to Abigail Thurston (1700-????)
7. Jonathan White (1732-1804) married 1756 to Abigail Wing (1734-1806)
8. Humphrey White (1758-1814) married 1788 to Sybil Kirby (1764-1848)
9. Jonathan White (1806-1850) married about 1823 to Miranda Wade (1804-1850)
10. Henry Arnold White (1824-1885) married 1844 to Amy Frances Oatley (1826-1870)
11. Julia White (1848-1913) married 1868 to Thomas Richmond (1847-1917)
12. Alma Bessie Richmond (1882-1962) married 1900 to Frederick Walton Seaver (1876-1942)
13. Frederick Walton Seaver (1911-1983) married 1942 to Betty Virginia Carringer (1919-2002)
14. Randall J. Seaver

*  Francis Cooke and John Cooke were on the Mayflower sailing from Plymouth, England to Massachusetts Bay in late 1620.

Are there any readers who are my cousins through a Francis Cooke line? Please let me know what our most recent common ancestors are in our Cooke lines.

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

I guess we are relatives, in a manner of speaking. I too trace back to Francis Cooke and Richard Warren.

I also guess we are relatives as I too have Francis Cooke as an ancestor.
