I wanted to share this family photo of Africa McGregory with the community. Location: London, England. Date: unknown.

Great find! Some said that all records on Africa Pike were lost in the Great Fire. Now can we determine her Mother's LNAB. Many argue Blount. That a potential sister of Emma, were she a Blount, also married a Pike is compelling (not infrequent event), but I have as yet been unable to establish a relationship among the Pike husbands.
Catharina Blount, also of London-Middlesex, shows Edmond Blount (1627-1694) and Judith Rhodes (1625-1650) as parents. Catharina married a Gabriel Pike of Ireland (b. 1650), Emma/Emily Blount's husband John Pike (1648-1681), according to some sources was the son of Richard Pike of Newbury-Berkshire (1627-1668) and Elizabeth Jackson (1636-1688). This was the same Richard Pike who died in prison because of having adopted Quaker beliefs mere years beforehand.
