Welcome To Pilgrims and Pioneers!

After many years of researching my family geneaology I have been lucky enough to discover actual information about my relatives that lived in the Pilgrim Era and the Pioneer Era- while many people also have realtives from those eras- many do not know their names or where they lived- actually seeing the proof in print makes you much more aware of who they really were.
After discovering these relatives it of course made me curious to learn more about the eras that they lived in and what their lives were like as, the history I learned in grade school had long since been forgotten.
I decided to start this blog for others who are also interested in these eras.
Some of the information here will be actual facts about my realtives and some will be information about the eras in general that I have found on the web.
I hope you will enjoy traveling back in time with me!

Plimoth Plantation- Eduoad Bompasse

As most of us know the first Pilgrims arrived at Plymouth Rock, MA in 1620 arriving on the ship Mayflower. The village they constructed to live in was called Plimoth Plantation. There is a an actual historic site with the restored village in Pymouth, Ma http://www.plimothplantation.org/

I discovered in my genealogy research that the next ship to land in Plymouth was the passenger ship " Fortune" that landed there in November, 1621.

On that ship was my 10th great grandfather. Eduoad Bompasse( His name would later become Edward Bumpass and then Bump). A man of French descent that was born in England in 1603. If the information I have found is correct as a young man he joined others in Leydon, Holland to escape religious persecution and then followed them to America on the passenger ship "Fortune".

He was one of the few single men to make this voyage on that ship and joined the first Pilgrims from the ship " Mayflower" to live on Plimoth Plantation. I have found from the Plimouth Plantation website a document called " The Division of Cattle" which documents his land ownership and the names of the people he shared that land with. I will post this information at a later date.

I am new to this blogging but I am going to try to post some photos from the historicl village Plimoth Planatation. These are photos were found on the web- http://www.galenfrysinger.com/

I would like to thank Mr. Frysinger for his kindness in sharing these photos with the world!
