Goffe-85 and Goffe-2 appear to represent the same person because: Correct birth date should be "about 1628" in England; death in Malden

I believe that this Lydia was born in 1628 not 1658. This is consistent with the Sprague Project and other quasi-reliable sources. Also consistent with marriage date of 2 March 1651 as cited in the "Sources" section of the Biography for this profile.

Lydia is 15 degrees from Kevin Bacon, 14 degrees from John Dodge, 15 degrees from Deb Durham and 17 degrees from Queen Elizabeth II Windsor on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
