Absent comments from authoritative researchers (notably Ted Dickerson
and the Historian for the PPFA), I think that we can safely conclude
that William was *NOT* the father of Thomas the Elder. In fact, it
appears that he was, in fact, his brother instead, just as you suggested
in your earlier message. If anyone has information to the contrary, I
urge you to present it to us as soon as possible so that we do not
wander too far along the wrong path.
I think this is a topic worth continuing and I hope others will join in.
Is there a Lawyer in the crowd? Where do I obtain permission to share
previously published materials with the group?
I have been the Administrator of PHILBRICK-L since it's inception nearly
4 years ago (has it been *that* long?) and I have always been
disappointed by the lack of participation by the majority of the
subscribers. The list currently has 153 members but less than 10% of
you have ever posted a message. I suspect it's because the majority of
you have already established your connection to Thomas1 and don't need
any new information. You're only here out of curiosity and to see how
the "other half" lives. Some of you (like Helen and others) are more
than willing to help, but nobody asks for it. To you "lurkers" out
there: Speak up! Take advantage of the many treasures that exist
within the membership of this generous group. You might be surprised
and pleased at the results.
By the way, *should* we determine the parentage of Thomas1 without
doubt, how shall we refer to them? Will his forefathers become minus 1,
minus 2, etc? <VBG>
