Hi Madeline!! Yes, definitely, I am a cousin!! Nice to meet you! I have your line on my data base down to Lucy Simmons born 30 Sept 1840. Since her mom Eleanor (named for Lydia's mother) died in 1842, Lucy lived with George Prior Jr, right? I descend from George and Lydia's son John. The whole family, other than George Jr, left Bremen and went to Kittery, ME and worked in ship building. Then they sold their land to the government for a naval hospital at the US Shipyard there (the one that is on the closure list)and they came across the river to Portsmouth, NH. Shortly after, my John moved to a farm in Stratham about 15 miles from Portsmouth. George and Lydia (Cushman) Prior are buried in the South Street Cemetery in Portsmouth. George's son Levi's family are too. I used one of Lydia's Mayflower lines (Isaac Allerton)to go into the Mayflower Society. I have tons of info on the Priors and the Cushmans and have done a lot of research on them in the past 15 years. I will be happy to share. Where are you??? Are you in Maine? I am in North Sandwich, NH. Will wait to hear from you.
