<< Hi; I think it was the first John White you mentioned that were on the
Lyon. According to my "Planters' book by Banks, the Cambridge John Whte came
over in 1633 with Mrs. Mary White, Nathaniel White and Mary White. "Lyon,
William Peirce, Master, sailed from London June 22 and arrived September 16
at Boston. "He broght one hundred and twenty three passengers, whereof fifty
children, all in health. They had been twelve weeks aboard and eight weeks
from Land's End".
Other passengers were "James Olmstead of Fairstead, county Essex allong with
Mrs. Joyce Olmstead, Nehemiah Olmstead, Nicholas Olmstead, John Olmstead and
Rebecca Olmstead." I 'll have to see if any of those Olmsteads are mine.

I'm sending this along just in case you're able to work out a connection
between your ancestors & these Olmsteads. This isn't much but it was all
the book had to offer about them.
