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:

79-Charity Corson
158-Eli Corson
159-Christianna Thompson
316-Jacob Corson Jr
317-Charity Stillwell
318-Benajah Tomson
319-Prudence Eldredge
632-Jacob Corson Sr
633-Naomi
634-Nicholas Stillwell
635-Sara Hand
1264-Jan Carstensen
1265-Maria Elias Daas
1268-John Stillwell Jr
1270-George Hand
2528-Carsten Jansen
2529-Barbara
2530-Elias Daas
2536-John Stillwell
2537-Elizabeth Perrin
2540-Thomas Hand
2541-Katherine Stubbs
5072-William Stillwell
5073-Hannah
5074-Daniel Perrin
5075-Elizabeth
5080-John Hand
5081-Elizabeth Gransden
10144-Lt Nicholas Stillwell
10145-Anne
10148-Pierre Perrin
10149-Adrienne Jubril
10160-John Hand
10161-Joan Simmons
10162-Henry Gransden
10163-Alice

Thanks for your help.

-Michael
