Hi Laura, I was given the info by a fellow researcher and told that the source was a book titled "Plymouth Colony, Its History & People". I just ordered the book about a month ago and haven't even had time to check anything in it. I looked up Ann Perkins tonight and found the following paragraph.

"His earliest known wife was called Ann in a 1648 deed, but in a later deed (of 1659) his wife was Lydia (Dawes-Gates 2:304, MD13:232). His inventory in 1686 was sworn to by an Abigail Doane, whom some have taken as third wife, though Dawes-Gates 2:305 has good arguments to show that Abigail was more likely his daughter. Torrey suggests that wife Ann might have been a Perkins.

That doesn't sound like very good proof to me! I am going to remove the last name of Perkins from my files. I guess it could be correct, but the Doane Family book makes no mention of her last name.

As far as the Bangs family, it looks like their is a small bit of info in the book I listed above, but I have not had a chance to do much with it. If I come across anything, I will let you know.
