Great Migration Directory lookup request

I'd like lookups for

Abraham Blish or Blush, maybe came to Duxbury in 1637:


John Williams of Scituate

His daughter Anna married or Hannah between 1632 and 1638, and it seems she came over with John.  An article in NEHGR says this Anna was the daughter of John Williams of Scituate.

I found three references to Abraham Blish/Blush. One was where Dolor Davis sold land to Abraham Blush (on 17 July 1658) in Barnstable. The next reference was that there may be confusion between the Annable family and that of Abraham Blish. The last was where Richard Moore of Ducksborrow, yeoman sold his land in Duxbury to Abraham Blush (1 Nov 1637).

There are a number of John Williams. 41 of them. I don't have time to look at those right now.

Thanks.  I found those three references in the Great Migration database -- did you get them from the Great Migration Directory (which covers through 1640) or from a database search?  If it was from the directory, my interest is in the sources Anderson lists.
Sorry, those were from the database. Good to see someone got the correct info for you.
