Please forgive my flippancy. There are also a lot of Scudder ancestors
antecedent to John Scudder. My focus is on North American ancestors and the
only Scudder, per se, that I have is Elizabeth, and she became Elizabeth
Lothrop (or Lathrope in 1644.
It has been a fascinating experience to discover so many distinguished
families with which there is common connection. And you're right, the
Scudders have many distinguished progeny.
Thanks for the feedback.
