new Wikipedia article about earliest Mayflower deaths incl. Jasper More

Just to advise those interested persons, we have created a new Wikipedia Mayflower-related article about the 5 persons from that ship who were the earliest to die in America, with many deaths to follow in that bitter winter of 1620/21. One of those 5 included a little boy named Jasper More, who had a very tragic story.

The 5 persons were:
William Butten
Edward Thompson
Jasper More
Dorothy Bradford, wife of William Bradford
James Chilton, a signer of the Mayflower Compact.

Provincetown has a fine 1921 memorial honoring these 5 persons.

Jasper More was the brother of my Mayflower ancestor, Richard More.
