Sylvester Eveleth and his wife Susan Nubery cannot be the parents of Elizabeth, wife of John Perkins (Perkins-631). Sylvester was born in 1604, married in 1630, and died in 1689. Elizabeth was born in 1616, married in 1635 and died in 1684. Charles Robert Anderson, in Great Migration Begins (1995), does not identify a maiden name for her. For this reason, no parents are shown for Elizabeth. PLEASE DO NOT ADD THEM.
