I have a question about the birthdate of George Grinnell. Esther Littleford Woodworth-Barnes, "Family of John Alden, vol. 16, part 1 of Mayflower Families Through Five Generations, 1999, p. 297-298., has 12 April 1702, Little Compton, Rhode Island as his birth date and place. It also has Anne Grinnell, one of my ancestors (wiki id Grinnell-322) as one of his children. I'd like to resolve the birthdate question before I add him as her father.

Thanks, Brenda Breed (Breed-327)
