General Notes: John Cooke came on the Mayflower with his father. Bradford's account written about March 1650/51 says "his sone John which came over with him, is maried and hath 4 children living." This would seem to imply that there was an unknown child living at that time or that daughter Mary was born by that date. If the latter is true, then Mary would have to be born before Hester.
