Millett

[NOTE: Some recent researchers are using the line: Thomas (4), John (3), William (2), and John (1). That line is not supported by the indenture papers so I've not changed my previously researched line. However, copy with caution as I've used only secondary sources and have no idea which line is correct.--Helene]
