Hello David: It's been a while (5 years) since I last posted - time flies! Thank you for your post; your information is intriguing. I agree that much of the credible evidence points to two Edmunds. Whether they are father/son or brothers (your post is the first I've heard of the brothers theory) is still in question. It's clear that the first Edmund was not born in 1574, as many would claim. It has been pretty well proven that the baptismal record for 1574 is for Thomas, not Edmund. Therefore, any concerns of the first Edmund being too young to sire a child in 1590 (Edmund 2nd) are unfounded, as there may be more than 20 years between them. So, father/son or brothers (as you claim) - either is plausible in my mind. All the evidence I've seen shows that Edmund the 1st married Elizabeth Leeds (not Sarah Moore). Also, it has been proven that Sarah Moore was married to Edmund 2nd, as the marrage is recorded in 1611, three years after the death record of Edmund 1st. The Sarah Dole marrage to Edmund 2nd has be disproven pretty conclusively. He was married to S. Moore in England, and lived with her in the US until her death, upon marrying S. Hill. I can cite references for all this if needed.

What are your family records of which you write? Any documentation you could share would be invaluable to the rest of us Greenleafs, I'm sure! BTW, you'd have some convincing to do to prove Mayflower passage - there are no Greenleafs on any of the passenger lists that I've seen.

Thanks, and looking forward to hearing from you again,
