Thank you for bringing the many contributions of Mary Dunlop Johnson MacLean to the NAACP to my attention. Of interest, WEB DuBois had family connections in the Bahamas.

Hi ,

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.

Greetings! I'm descended from eight colonial governors of the Plymouth, Massachusetts Bay and Connecticut colonies, including my namesake John Winthrop, and a convicted (but not executed) Salem witch, Mary (Perkins) Bradbury. I'm also a descendant of Epes Sargent of Gloucester. Personally, I am interested in lobbying responsible parties on both sides of the Atlantic to establish once and for all, through DNA testing, the connection between the Dudley Family of America and the Baronial Sutton-Dudleys of Dudley Castle, Staffordshire, UK. I have personal knowledge and sources to contribute concerning the family of the Hon. Timothy Darling, C.M.G., of Nassau, New Providence Is., and am interested in meeting and learning from his other descendants. Happy to abide by the rules of this community,
