James,

Have you seen such a document? That would certainly be an exciting find for hundreds of researchers who have been searching for such a proof. The LDS has certainly collected and preserved millions of records that would otherwise be lost. Unfortunately, there may still be parts of it that are neither cataloged nor indexed. The problem is especially difficult since that marriage has been passed on mostly as folklore or family tradition. Many genealogists agree that it is likely, but the documentation so far has never met the requirements to permit descendants of that union to join Mayflower Society. We have been working off "preponderance of the evidence" for several centuries. It certainly would be great if LDS holds documents that could prove it without relying upon circumstantial evidence.
