Most of the above information was obtained from online family trees entered into my database a long time ago.  Reviewing Martin Hollick's book, New Englanders in the 1600s, I see that there are some useful resources for the Daniel Cole family, including:

*  Susan E. Roser, Friends of the Pilgrims Series, Volume 2: Daniel Cole of Eastham, Massachusetts (Milton, Ont., the author, 2010)

*  Dorothy Brewer Erikson, Descendants of Thomas Brewer Connecticut to Maine 1682-1996 with Allied Families (Boston: NEHGS, 1996), pages 335-340

I have this family in my tree as well, though I'm not directly descended. Daniel Cole and Ruth Chandler's daughter Mary married Joshua Hopkins, son of Giles Hopkins & Catherine Whelden. Joshua's sister Abigail (married Ensign William Merrick) was my 9th gr-grandmother. Soooo... you can find more reference material in the Mayflower 5-generations book on Stephen Hopkins as well as the series by Josiah Paine on the early settler of Eastham (at San Diego FHC). Thanks for Ruth's surname!

I am wondering how the surname cloud was created. Is this something you designed, or did you use a software program?
