Below is a verbatim excerpt from Robert Charles Anderson FASG [Fellow of the American Society of Genealogists*], The Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England 1622-1633 (published 1995; pages 1381):
“GRACE [PALMER, dau. of Walter-1 PALMER and his unknown first wife], b. about 1613 (aged 53 in 1667 [TAG (The American Genealogist): 24-43, citing WMJ (Medical Journals of John Winthrop Jr., 1657-1669, manuscript, Massachusetts Historical Society, Boston, Massachusetts) 764]); m. Charlestown [Massachusetts] 23 April 1634 THOMAS MINOR (this place and date given in several secondary sources, but primary source not found [Savage 3:216; Wyman 675]).”
Palmer-4819 and Palmer-3559 appear to represent the same person because: Reviewing my off-line records, I determined that Palmer-4819 is a match for Palmer-3559, which I missed when I imported my family tree.
Grace came with her father Walter and family with the Higginson Fleet of 6 six ships, from Gravesend, England on 5 Apr 1629 bound for the Massachusetts Bay/Charles River. He is on the passenger list for the ship Four Sisters arriving in Salem Harbor June 1629.
Grace is 13 degrees from Charles Darwin, 12 degrees from Amelia Earhart, 15 degrees from Queen Elizabeth II Windsor and 19 degrees from Gilly Wood on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
