I have it that Sarah Gilman is the daughter of Edward Gilman and Mary Clark.
Edward GILMAN Gyllman Last Updated May 6, 2003 Please see The Fourth Generation, 16. for the Edward Gilman who married Mary Clark, their family and voyage to America on the "Diligent." See Edward Gilman's father, also named Edward, for information prior to the Fourth Generation.
Note information on the passengers of the Diligent are shown toward the end of this article.
16. Edward GILMAN, "The Emigrant" (Edward, Edward, Edward) was born about 1587 in , Hingham, Norfolk, England. He was christened on 20 Apr 1587 in Of, Hingham, Norfolk, England. He died on 22 Jun 1655 in , Exeter, Rockingham, New Hampshire. He was buried on 10 Apr 1681 in , Exeter, Rockingham, New Hampshire. ***
If the Edward Gilman who married Mary Clark is the first generation, I am the 12th generation. Mary Clark is an early ancestor of my maternal line, so in theory my mother and I would have the same mtDNA as Mary Clark.
