  • Name Matthew RANSOM  [1, 2, 3, 4, 5
    • It has been brought to my attention though an e-mail from Kirk Ransom, dtd 2-28-2012, that Matthew Ransom is not the son of Robert Ransom of Plymouth MA. This has been determined by DNA testing. So for this reason, I have removed Matthew as being the son of Robert.

    Notes 
    • Excerpt from "New England Families Genealogical and Memorial: Thrid Series, Vo. IV" :Matthew was a tanner by trade, and settled in Saybrook, Connecticut, where he received 4 acres of land, in consideration of settling there to carry on his occupation. This was in what was known as the "Oyster River Quarter," now Westbrook, Connecticut. The Saybrook records contain no further mention of him except to record one child, and it is presumed that he died in early life.
