Yes, the Mordecai on the right is the son of the Mordecai in the center. What is not included in the box above is that Frances Ironmonger from column number one married Mordecai II.

I really feel for the Susannah. Fathered by a 70 year old man and her brother. Mothered by a 235 year old woman and her step-mother/sister-in-law. She really had it rough.
Think JOAN's birth year is a typo? Here's her profile information:

 JOAN Constable
  B: 1458 in Halsham, Yorkshire, England
  M: 1473 in Studely, Yorkshire, England to William Mallory (no dates)
  M: 1661 to Mordecai Cooke (1623 - 1667)
  D: Unknown 
  John Constable (1428 - 1477)
  Lora Fitzhugh (1422 - 1472)

There are numerous online trees that have a Mordecai Cooke married to a Joan Constable. At least seven of them have the couple living two centuries apart. At least that's how many I found on the first page of search results. 
Excuse me while I get an ice pack for my head.

Thanks to Diane for the heads up about this profile ;-)
