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!

Calamity Jane


( 1852-1903)
Calamity Jane was a famous woman scout of the Wild West, pony express rider, and known for dressing like a man at a time when women could be fined for wearing men's clothing!
Her famous quote: " I was considered the most reckless and dangerous rider and one of the best shots in the Western country".

When I was a little girl I thought that Calamity Jane was such an interesting character; maybe I identified with her because my middle name is Jayne. What little girl wouldn't secretly want to be the bad girl rebel who dresses like a man and then outshoots them? LOL
