My Mayflower / Richmond Connection

The most excellent Richmond Family website [here] has a Mayflower link based upon the marriage of Col. Silvester Richmond to Elizabeth Rogers. I would like to add my own Mayflower connection based upon the marriage of Thomas Richmond to Laura Backus. Laura's lineage goes back to Stephen Hopkins and also his daughter Constance Hopkins. An added bonus; descendants of Stephen Hopkins are also eligible for the Jamestowne Society [see Qualifying Ancestors here].
