“Does anyone have any family history/birthdate etc. on James McNabb. I found him listed on the John & Sarah after the Battle of Worcester in 1651 and his marriage to Sarah Roper in 1669 (Dedham, MA). From there I can follow his family down to my dad but I can’t find anything before the battle about him or his parents/siblings. Would love to know more. Thanks. Cindy.”
