Bryan, I think you intended to merge Jerome-4, Aaron Jerome b. 1764, with Jerome-87. I've initiated this merge but someone else will have to complete it.
Jerome-87 and Jerome-4 appear to represent the same person because: same dates, same spouse
Jerome-6 and Jerome-87 do not represent the same person because: Different wife's

Jerome-6 and Jerome-87 appear to represent the same person because: I found another one with same info as your and I have asked them to be on their Trust list" So I can continue with my research

In response to the comment by Lawrence Neumann from four years ago, I believe that Abigail was a descendant of Abraham Warren (ca. 1606-1682) of Salem MA. I have no evidence however that Abraham was related to Richard Warren of the Mayflower. Does anyone have definitive information on this?
Abigail Rich Mother of AAron Jerome was a descendant of Richsrd Warren a signer of the Mayflower Compact and passenger on the Mayflower.
