Note: From Heather: Hi Barb, Yes, William Flint, b. 1603 is my 9x great grandfather. I descend from both him and his brother Thomas. Their father was a Thomas, too, I believe. Under William, I descend from Hannah who married John Southwick (she also married Joshua Ward?) Under brother Thomas, I descend from Thomas and George.
