Does this profile qualify for PGM?

John

McIntosh formerly MacKintock or Maclintock or McIntosh aka Maclintock, MacIntosh

I've just been updating - profile had no dates or places.  He is the ancestor of the organizing leader of the Boston Tea Party in 1773....

William and Experience had another son called John in 1704.

I have no idea where Savage got William's birth from, or the notion that he was born to a 2nd wife.

Thanks

Since he was born in 1635 (if that's correct, it looks suspicious), he would not have come on his own before 1640. He would have come with parents. Usually the parents would be identified.

Anyway, I don't think at this point that he qualifies, but if you discover he was older or find his parents and they came early enough, then he might.

Thanks Anne.  Time may prove it out...

The PGM page says the project covers people that immigrated between 1621 and 1640, and there is evidence that the person resided in the colonies before 1640.

See https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Puritan_Great_Migration

His profile is somewhat thin. So when did he immigrate? Is there evidence of him in the colonies before 1640?
