    I was glancing at your list of immigrants to America — were they all ancestors of yours or just Myles Standish? I noticed the name of Thomas Philbrick (also Philbrook) in your list — if his dates were 1583 – 1667, it’s possible that he was (also) an ancestor of Carol (maybe a 9G uncle? — I haven’t been able to research this further.

    There is a book, A genealogy of the Philbrick and Philbrook families, descended from the emigrant, Thomas Philbrick, 1583-1667 by Chapman, Jacob, 1810-1903 – Published 1886 — a full Kindle edition is available free online.
