Surname Saturday -- LNU (Susanna, who married Roger Buck, England to colonial Massachusetts)

It's Surname Saturday, and I'm "counting down" my Ancestral Name List each week.

I am working in the 9th great-grandmothers by Ahnentafel number, and I am up to Ancestor #2497 who is Susanna LNU (1618-1685). [Note: the more recent ancestral families have been covered in earlier posts.]

My ancestral line back through one generation in this LNU family line is:

1. Randall J. Seaver

2. Frederick Walton Seaver (1911-1983)
3. Betty Virginia Carringer (1919-2002)

4. Frederick Walton Seaver (1876-1942)
5. Alma Bessie Richmond (1882-1962)

8. Frank Walton Seaver (1852-1922)
9. Hattie Louise Hildreth (1857-1920)

18.  Edward Hildreth (1831-1899)
19.  Sophia Newton (1834-1923)

38.  Thomas J. Newton (1800-????)

39.  Sophia Buck (1797-1882)
78.  Isaac Buck (1757-1846)

79.  Martha Phillips (1757-1830)

156.  Isaac Buck (1732-????)
157.  Mary Richards (1733-????).

312.  Isaac Buck (1706-1780)
313.  Ruth Graves (1711-????)

624.  Ephraim Buck (1676-????)
625.  Esther Waget (1677-1748)

1248.  Ephraim Buck (1646-1721)
1249.  Sarah Brooks (1652-1720)

2496.  Roger Buck, born about 1617 in England; died 10 November 1693 in Woburn, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States.  He was the son of 4992. William Buck.  He married about 1640 in Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States.
2497.  Susanna LNU, born about 1618 in England; died 10 September 1685 in Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States.

Children of Roger Buck and Susanna LNU are:

*  Samuel Buck (1643-1690), married 1670 Rachel Levens (1646-1694).
*  John Buck (1644-1644).
Ephraim Buck (1646-1721), married 1671 Sarah Brooks (1652-1720).
*  Mary Buck (1649-1669)
*  Lydia Buck (1650-????), married 1673 Henry Smith (1645-1720).
*  Ruth Buck (1653-1683), married 1674 Thomas Bathrick (1657-1683).
*  Elizabeth Buck (1657-????), married 1678 Joshua Wood (1655-????).

The FamilySearch Family Tree lists Susanna's maiden name as Jones, daughter of Ebenezer Fry Jones and "Woman of the Wampanoag."  One of the "Events" is immigration with her father in 1635 at age 18, probably from a passenger list.  It is highly unlikely that Ebenezer Jones, or some other male Jones, had a child in 1617-8 with a "Woman of the Wampanoag" in either England or Massachusetts.  

Some Ancestry Member Trees list Susanna as the daughter of Robert Jones (1599-1691, son of Thomas Prence) and Elizabeth Soane.  Who knows what is correct.  Susanna is an LNU in my tree.

I have done no original research on this LNU line or the purported Jones line.
