What’s the big deal? Well, at the top of the list is the lovely Alice (Atwood) Mullens. Who was the wife of “Master William Mullens” who came over on the Mayflower.
I know, I know. From the whole point of view of the colonial/imperialism sphere, I should not be proud, but…well, I can’t help it.
What’s super interesting to me is that also on the ship was a man named “Gilbert Winslow,” who turns out the be the great x6 grandfather of Alice’s greatx6 grandson; both of the 6x greats (one Winslow, one Gale (by that point)) are my great x 3 grandparents.
Anyway, that was my Sunday night activity while watching the Pack trounce the Falcons in a come-from-behind win.
