"Jonathan and Hannah had three sons (Benjamin, Jonathan, and Joseph) and three daughters (Maria, Thankful, Rebecca), all born at Plymouth. Such was the close association of families in the small New England towns of those days, that it is not surprising to note that five of these Morey children married five with the surname Swift."
