And the Discoveries Continue…

Let me first preface this by saying, I really can stop anytime I want. I am not addicted to ancestry.com. Really.

I’m not.

Much.

Okay, with that disclaimer aside, let me just share more fun discoveries. Check this out!

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.

Seriously?

Nifty.

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.

    FYI Mary “Polly” Grafton Gale always signed her gift checks as Polly Mary Barr. Hence a version of your name. Cool stuff.

    Yeah, I’ve found some cool stuff on her, including a letter she wrote detailing her and her family’s trip to an army base her dad (GHG Gale) was stationed on (and has a statue er…at <–bad grammar).

    I am NOT addicted. No. Really. I can st– ooh, a leaf!
