John-Reading that makes me realize how far we have come with the Tinker family. Actually the information was all
there but not all of it had been found and definately not all was put together. David was not the only Tinker named on Mt Desert. His father, John Tinker was, in several places. John Tinker was also listed at York, ME and Deer Isle, ME. At York, ME there is a list of John and Elizabeth Tinkers' children including John Jr. of Ellsworth, ME. The only Jonathan Tinker named on Mt Desert was John Sr.'s son that you descend from. He was correct
about David being Rebecca's step-son, but had Rebecca
missing from Rebecca and John's children. There was so much
documentation that was not being looked at. I think John
Sr. descends from the original John Tinker of Mass. and
Conn., but have not been able to put him in the correct
family. Think that having children named James and Eunice
from both marriages may be a clue. I descend from John's sister, Rhoda Tinker.
