Francis Cooke is our ancestor on the Mayflower. This is a brief article summarizing him, this article is a little more in depth about him, and this article is very in depth about the Cooke family.
All 3 articles agree that Francis Cooke kept a very low profile, did not involve himself in politics, but did help build roads, and helped settle disputes in court

As is seen, this only goes until Kiera, Gian, Sienna, Tony, Kayla, Nikhil, Luca, and my 4x Great Grandpa, this is because by then, they already had 3,466 people, so doing anymore generations would be impractical, and I could not find any PDF’s that specialized with our specific line!
The first link is more for the descendants, whereas this link has more about John Maxson and the family in it
An interesting article on Kiera, Sienna, Gian, Kayla, Tony, Nikhil, Luca and my 12x Great Grandpa, and first white man who made Stonington, CT.
