Jacqueline, please read the "Disputed Origins" section; it explains why she is marked as "Unknown" and not recognized as daughter of Edward Winslow.

In her bio you mention she was the daughter of "Winslow". Margaret was my 10th great grandmother she was the daughter of Edward Winslow and Eleanor Pelham. Will you please add Margarets maiden name of Windlow and remove the "unknown" ? Thank you.
