Is there any evidence for the LNAB of Elizabeth Perkins, wife of Jacob Perkins? She was born about 1629 in England and died at Ipswich in 1685. The names Lovell and Whipple have both been proposed, but I believe there is no evidence for either.  She is currently shown with Lovell parents.   Anderson does not give her a last name.

I believe that her LNAB should be changed to Unknown and that she should be disconnected for her current parents, with a note in the Bio.

Vic, I think you're right-- following Anderson, Great Migration Begins, p 1432. Unless there's been some analysis more recent than Anderson. (I couldn't find any on NEHGS.)

The source for Lovell as wife is: Jacob Perkins of Wells, Maine and his Descendants 1583-1936, compiled by Thomas Allen Perkins, published 1947.

I dont know how reliable this is, but this is the source.

There's a copy of this book on Ancestry.com. The foreward claims the author looked at town records, but the contents of the work itself include no source for the claim that Lovell was Elizabeth's maiden name. :-(

Anderson' Great Migration Begins, p 1432, offers no maiden name for Elizabeth.
