There are pros and cons to putting a lot of immediate family members on this web site. Sometimes not a one of them looks like anyone else in the clan, so you wonder, "What did that accomplish?" On the other hand, if there are enough images under any one particular PIlgrim, you might be able to detect similarities to distant relatives of the same Pilgrim. For example, under Chilton I had two photos of members of the Ames family of Plymouth and Bristol Counties, MA and today found three more and posted them. Except for the facial hair, being 19th century photos, none of them looks like anyone else. So which, if any, looked like a Chilton? Oliver 2d actually resembled Estelle Clark, directly below him, and Benjamin Winslow Harris, directly below her. Estelle and the Ames were Chiltons via Mary (Chilton) Winslow (Mrs. John Winslow). Benjamin was a Chilton via his father but his mother was a descendant of John Winslow's brother Kenelm. Perhaps these three look like Winslows? None look like the portrait of Edward Winslow (the only Pilgrim portrait done from life), but do look a little like his son Josiah. Maybe they look like the other Winslow siblings who came to Massachusetts. What do you think?
