Pinkham Family Genealogy Forum
What you have looks correct to me. The 1613 birth of Richard-1 Pinkham is based on his identification as the same man baptised in Alvington, England in November 1613. That may or may not be the case. Based on the fact that he was in Dover by 1639 and signed the Combination, he must have been 21 so born no later than 1618.
We know that John-2 was about 80 in 1724 thus born 1644. There were also sons Thomas-2 and Matthew-2, so Richard-2 could easily be born circa 1650-1660 to these parents. When he died in Nantucket in 1718 is his age given?
In any case see "Genealogical Dictionary of ME and NH" by Sybil Noyes, Charles Thornton Libby, and Walter Goodwin Davis (Portland, 1939, reprinted Baltimore, 1988) for more on this identification, which I believe is more accurate than Sinnott.
