Thank you so much, John.

Also, in regards to Ms. Alma, my research has lead me to believe she is a direct descendant of William Bradford, passenger aboard the Mayflower and second governor of Plymouth Colony. Has anyone else found this?

The lineage I have on this is as follows:

William Bradford m Alice Carpenter-Southworth (2nd Marriage)
William Bradford m Alice Richards
Hannah Bradford m Joshua Ripley
Faith Ripley m Samuel Bingham
Abisha/Abishai Bingham m Mary Tubbs
Abisha/Abishai Bingham m Ann Sawyer
Sarah Bingham m Adrial Simons
Anson Simons m Hannah Stratton

And if others have traced this same path and have great documentation for the whole line to back it up, has this research been submitted to the Mayflower Society already?

Most of this line is pretty well documented, but I haven't personally found anything to definitively connect Anson Simons to Adrial as his father, although place and time seems to make it probable.
