Vicki’s note – helpful site found by Katherine Kemnitz, Genealogist. I’m looking forward to exploring this site, as I have just found an ancestral connection to President John Adams and to some Mayflower passenger.
December 16, 2017 Update:
I am related to 2nd U.S. President John Adams (my first cousin seven times removed) ? John Adams father (also) John Adams (my 7th Great Uncle) was brother to Samuel Adams, also a Revolutionary War hero in his own right, Samuel is my 6th Great-grandfather on the Ruthe side of our family (Lucy Adams Leighty). The second John Adams son, 6th U.S. President, John Quincy Adams is my 2nd cousin 6 times removed.
I was able to find important information on the Mayflower Society & DAR/SAR – Patriot to Passenger Project to confirm this. (Thanks Katherine Kemnitz.)

Patriot to Passenger Project
The Patriot to Passenger Project
The Patriot to Passenger Project is a growing published list of Patriots who descend from Mayflower passengers in an effort to build a bridge between other heritage societies.
As more and more information becomes available on the internet, descendants are reaching out to connect their Revolutionary War Patriot with the Mayflower Society. Many Daughters and Sons of the American Revolution Societies (DAR and SAR) are asking if they also have an ancestral tie to a Mayflower passenger and are interested in finding how they may become a member.
The Patriot to Passenger Project is a growing published list of Patriots who descend from Mayflower passengers, in an effort to build a bridge between other heritage societies. So many of our Mayflower members are also members of other lineage societies such as DAR, SAR, Colonial Dames, etc. We often see many of our friends at these other meetings.
The Patriot to Passenger Project is a way to help others find their link to a Mayflower Pilgrim and also benefits our Mayflower members to discover other Mayflower lines of descent so that they can submit supplemental applications to honor and recognize all of their ancestors.
This project is a work in progress. If you have any ideas, thoughts or suggestions, please contact Muriel Cushing at Flash1620@comcast.net.
