This a great start Rob. Thanks.
After breaking through many brickwalls in the last few years, I've stalled. This is a good time to go over those lines that I've just accepted.
My entree to the Cape May families is through Charity (Corson) Stites Wood. Charity, presumably with her parents and first husband, emigrated to Ohio prior to 1810. She told her grandson some pretty remarkable things which he detailed in a 1915 memoir. He mixes up names and generations but the essence has stood up to scrutiny. Although I can't prove the Mayflower descent he claimed it's understandable that a family that lived in Cape May for as many generations as the Hands, Stillwells and Corsons might start to think that.
For the record, this is Charity's presumed ahnentafel:
316-Jacob Corson Jr
632-Jacob Corson Sr
1265-Maria Elias Daas
1268-John Stillwell Jr
10144-Lt Nicholas Stillwell
Thanks for your help.
