edmondsallan , from auckland .nz , has been a Family Tree Circles member since Aug 2010. is researching the following names: CLAYTON, EDMONDS.
This was very interesting. I remember in school I wasn't too keen on American History or the story of the Pilgrims. Had I known I have 3 ancestors that were pilgrims, (one of whom you mentioned above)maybe I'd have paid more attention.
My 3 ancestors are:
1. Thomas Rogers
2. John Alden & Priscilla Mullens
3. Peregrine White, whom Is freshley discovered while finally finding the info on my long elusive Haynes family on my father's male line. My 4th great grandmother was Lois White, and she is a 2nd or 3rd great granddaughter of Peregrine White.
I can't remember off hand which lines of my family leads to John Alden or Thomas Rogers. But it's kinda cool being descended from 3 pilgrims. I don't know much about Thomas Rogers, but I think I'm going to look him up and find out.
great a Nesslee . I have only just found out I am related to the Pilgrims also - Regards
In searching through my family history I discovered quite a few Mayflower links. THe most memorable being John HOWLAND. John Howland is my 10th Great Grandfather. He was only 18 at the time and during a storm at sea he was swept overboard. Luckily for his descendants he managed to grab ahold of the topsails lines and hold on long enough for the crew on deck to rescue him with a boat hook.
I also have Mayflower connections, actually more than one. But my 8thGrandfather was Peter BROWNE, and 8th Grandmother Mary [unknown last name]. His daughter was Rebecca Brown, 7th Grandmother who married William SNOW in Plymouth, MA. His son, my 6th Grandfather William SNOW II married Naomi WHITMAN, and so on.
