descending from Hopkins-373

With Paine-104 descending from Hopkins-373 (and displaying the Mayflower Descendant tag) would not Cleveland-656, who is clearly named as Paine-104's daughter, also be Hopkins-373 descendant?

And so, in Cleveland-656's Will, Cleveland-653 is named as her son, inheriting 1/11th of Cleveland-656's estate.

Wouldn't Cleveland-653, being clear descendant of Cleveland-656,  therefore also be Hopkins-373 descendant, meriting the same tag as Paine-104?

Short answer, yes. If they are a direct descendant then they can get the tag. The person they MARRY however does not get the tag. Only the children.
