Searching for information for branches of the Gum tree

Journal by maxine06

My husband is a descendant of the Gum tree. Roger Gum, which happenes to be at least 2 Roger Gum's, very confusing. The Roger that came to America from England may of been born 1620, the ship that brought him here possibly was the "Amsterdam". Some 3rd party sources say he came from Culmstock,Devonshire,England. I haven't any proof of this at this point, but, working on that. I find there is a Roger Gum b 1650 who married Francis Potter b ABt 1686. Their son John was b ABT 1688 in Sussex Co., Delaware. John and unk wife had a son Jacob b maybe 1764.
These dates would seem to me to be a little off, so use at your own discretion.
Jacob married Sarah Claypoole, there seems to be a very large family of Claypoole's. I have traced the Claypoole family back to Lords & Ladies, Kings & Queens, very interesting searching.
My main research mission is to find the ancestors of Roger Gum from
Has anyone researched this and found any helpful information? If there is would you please contact me and share that information?
Thanking you in advance.
