Susanna White Winslow was married to passenger William White when they sailed to America on the "Mayflower" with their son Resolved. She gave birth to Peregrine White, the first pilgrim child born in America in a cabin on the ship while it was anchored off the tip of Cap Cod. William died not long after and she then married fellow "Mayflower" passenger Edward Winslow in 1621. There's was the first marriage at Plymouth. She died sometime after 1654.
On October 30 1623 Susanna's second husband, Edward Winslow, wrote a letter from London to his uncle, Robert Jackson. He wrote "almost two years since I wrote to my father-in-law declaring the death of his son White (Winslow considered Susanna's father-in-law his also) & the continued health of his daughter and her two children;also how that by God's providence she was become my wife....My wife hath had one child by me, but it pleased him that gave it to take it again unto himself;I left her with child at my departure (whom God preserve) but hope to be with her before her delivery".
