Colony, she died during the 'first winter'. No documentation has yet been found
to prove that they had a child/children. However a large group of Standish descendants believe, with considerable ancedotal support, that Thomas Standish

Plymouth Colony before 1640, was a founder of Wethersfield, CT, designed
and built the fort there before settlement and is said from contemporary accounts
