Descendants of Arthur Hathaway


The Hathaway family is one that is very local to Southeastern Massachusetts. They have 2 pilgrim ancestors in Francis Cooke and Richard Warren. The early Hathaways owned extensive properties on either side of the Acushnet River, which would be present day Fairhaven and New Bedford. My recollection is that that the early Cookes (and Hathaways?) were Baptists and that is why they moved to Dartmouth. When Arthur, son of John, moved to Wareham, I believe that he was a Quaker. Others in this line were also Quakers.
