Descendants of Richard

Descendants of: Thomas, George, Richard, John, Sarah (Gardner) Balch
Samuel, Joseph, Mirian (Gardner) Hill, Seeth (Gardner) Grafton

This series will go through all of the children and identify some descendants. The list originally was on Wikipedia's page about Thomas Gardner (Planter). We'll put a header into each so that these can be linked, easily.

 For these lists, we will be adding more names. Chronological order:
  • Mary Gardner (c. 1660s) – wife of Jethro Coffin
  • Timothy Folger (c. 1700s through son, Richard) – studied the Gulf Stream with his cousin, Benjamin Franklin
  • Nathaniel Gorham (c. 1730s) – Signer of US Constitution
  • Mayhew Folger (c. 1770s) – rediscovered Pitcairn Islands in 1808
