I am trying to prove/disprove information found much too often without any documentation regarding my ancestor, John Moss(e) (1604 - 1707) who came over from England and married, perhaps, Abigail Charles. Supposedly, John came from England on the ship Winterhee with his sister, Sarah and her husband John Geare, as well as 3 Charles siblings. The ship was wrecked off Barbados and John Geare was lost; the survivors were later taken to Charlestown, Mass. and this is where, in 1636, John Charles and widow Sarah (Mosse) Geare were married.

I have searched the internet looking for a ship Winterhee, no such ship found. I know nothing more about a John Geare than what I have here; does anyone know anything about him?
