William Cohoun, of Swansea, Massachusetts

Part One; What We Do Not Know, by Colleen Cahoon

William Cohoun, (16??-1675) of Swansea, Massachusetts is the ancestor of many Americans, thus rightfully of keen interest, to the genealogists among his descendants.

Those interested will be able to find a few genuine historical documents, referencing that Great…Grandfather.  Those documents are considered ‘valid’ evidence of his identity and certain events affecting his life. 

What is also to be found, when researching William Cohoun of Swansea, is A LOT of speculation and outright FALSE DATA.

I will get straight to the point, there is absolutely NO EVIDENCE of any of the following:

1.  WHERE William was born…

2. WHEN William was born…

3.  To WHOM William was born…

4.  WHEN William arrived to the New England Colonies…

5.  WHO William married…

6.  WHEN William married…

7.  WHERE William married…

8.  WHAT became of his widow…
