Who is this Daniel Mix, born about 1598, alleged father of Thomas Mix of New Haven Colony? [closed]

+6 votes

Thomas Mix showed up in New Haven Colony about 1643, got in some trouble, but married "well" to the girl he was dallying with (Rebecca Turner), became a good citizen and died in 1691.

So who is this alleged father Daniel Meekes/Meeks/Mix? He is being inflicted on us by the usual culprits (Family Search Pedigree files, Ancestry Trees and other online trees), but in forty some odd years, I've never encountered a hint of his existence (perhaps in London.)

Anyone got a real source? A hint?

PS, I've done a pretty thorough search at AmericanAncestors

See him named as Daniel Meekes, born in Suffolk, died in London in ancestry.com and geni. Sourceless of course. http://www.californiayankees.com/g0/p407.htm lists a source: [S361] William Hatch, Compiler; 1708--Ridgefield, Connecticut-1908 : Bi-centennial Celebration, July 6th and 7th, 1908 Various Authors Online at: www.ancestry.com, unknown repository address, data downloaded 26 Oct 2012; unknown comments. The book is available at archive.org. William Hatch did not author any article in the book, and a search for Mix/Meekes found no entries. So, a spurious source.


Love those less than helpful sources. And I'll bet if there was an article, that because of nature of the work, it wouldn't give a source. Thanks Jim.
Why, of course, he is "Sir" of that name and his wife "Lady" Sophia Preston, late of Giggleswick, per family trees on Ancestry.com.
