Just the other day I tried again, in vain,to find something on that ship called the "Winterhee/Winterhe" and also something to back up/document Moss/Charles/Geare marriages but: still nothing to be found. Here is my note on that information:
1. Web-site: "The Lineage of Eldridge Morse"
John (1) Moss... was born circa 1604 in England He immigrated to Charlestown, Mass. from Cotheridge Parish in Wiltshire. He sailed on the ship Winterhee along with his sister, Sarah and her husband John Geare and three Charles siblings, John, Abigail and Mary. The ship was wrecked off Barbados and John Geare was lost. They were later taken to Charlestown where John Charles and Sarah were married.....

I have not entered any of that info on my database and have just stuck to what has been found/documented. Other reports say he came on the Hector and from a different location in England - so as of now: no one knows where in England he was born or from where in England he departed or on what ship.
