I am trying to prove or disprove a connection in my family. I'm working backwards and have come to a point where it seems as though all the sources are issuing from one point. I suspect an error, but it's repeated on many family trees ad nauseum.
I am looking for the family line of the Thomas Pinckney who married Mary Cotesworth.
I understand that he immigrated in 1687 to South Carolina. Did he have a sister who came with him called Jane/ "Lady Jane" who married a Fowler? What was the name of this Thomas's father? Is there a "Sir John Pinckney" in his line somewhere?
I'm trying to work from this Jane Pinckney back to a Mary Foster two generations away.
Thank you for any assistance.
