Re: Prudence Lide/ John Mixon,111

In my long search for Prudence Lide's parents I found a possibility in the "Virginia Council Journals, 1726-1753 page 23: Cornelius Lyde, Esq., of Stanton Wick, Somersetshire, England, had (among other sons): Stephen, baptized June 1681, Colonel of Militia in Virginia, and representative in the House of Burgesses in that Colony for King William county. He d. s. p. leaving a widow, who married ________Taylor, Exq. Stephen's brother, Lyonel Lyde was baptized 28 Feb. 1682, was Mayor of Bristol. He married two wives; by the first whom he married in Virginia he had a son, Cornelius.

To sum it up:
Cornelius Lyde had:
Stephen baptised June 1681
Lyonel baptised Feb. 1682
Prudence's birth of Mar 1683 would fit here. Of course that's just speculation, but it's something to work on. Prudence didn't name any of her sons Cornelius (that I know of), but her son, John Mixon IV named a son Cornelius.
