Could the following sentence possibly any longer and more confusing?

Hester le Mahieu's sister was Marie le Mahieu, wife of Jan Lano, another protestant refugee in Canterbury and then Leiden, whose son, Philippe de Lannoy migrated on the Fortune to join his uncle Francis Cooke and his cousin Robert at Plymouth colony in 1621, having been left behind with twenty others when the Mayflower's sailing mate, the Speedwell, foundered and returned to port in England leaving the Mayflower to sail alone.

Re: Walter J. Harrison, New Light on Francis Cooke and His Wife Hester Mayhieu and Their Son John. Mayflower Descendant, Vol 27, 145-153. I have looked around and called the Godfrey Memorial Library which is a genealogical library in Connecticut and they cannot locate this article though they have many Mayflower Descendant articles and volumes. In addition there is no month or year stated on the issue. Would the editor who inserted this sentence and gave it this reference please recheck his information and give full citation. Otherwise, it will have to be deleted. Thanks Mugginsx (talk) 16:41, 30 May 2012 (UTC)
