I have taken a DNA test (I'm 95% GreatBrit & 5% Trace Region- Ireland & Europe West) and can upload in order to disprove rumor's that Joseph Croshaw's wife and mother of his children was Rachel (Pocahanta's cousin). I read "story" that Unity was caring for a Rachel and it was more than likely her sister, Rachel Graves (1629-1656). I would like the to see the record corrected and the inclusion of Unity's children by Robert Blackwell. John West went to court many times to fight for his stepsons to retain the land and for it to not go to Joseph's last wife and her son.
