Your research says Solomon arrived in Colonial America in 1637, and that Richard was born before 1630 in Colonial America ... this is not possible.

Not just that, but Richard's name was actually Rice, and neither name appears among the list of Solomon's children in sources I've seen.  I descend from Rice and would like to see Solomon disconnected as father until evidence is furnished for this connection.

I've just added sources to Rice's profile and left the following comment

It is clear that Rice was born 1630 ish or earlier from the fact that he was married in 1651. Even though there is no firm date for the marriage of Solomon and his wife, Rice was born some 13 years prior to their other children and in the settlement of Solomon's estate, Samuel was called the eldest son. He needs to be disconnected. Objections? --- I will follow up in a few days, to give the objectors a chance to object.

Also, we don't have a clue where Rice was born, his profile now reflects that. Thank you Scott.
