Leads Needed:
We have attempted to submit the genealogy line below to the Mayflower Society, but were rejected on the grounds that they do not believe that Peter (8) could have been born in 1734.  They have stated that "The Crapo Genealogy" by Randall Crapo is an unreferenced typescript and they believe there is a missing generation.  

Desperately looking for information on (please refer to the "Crapo Line Brief" link below for the individual numbers):
