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!

Good By Sweet Annie

Almost 14 years ago I helped my dog Buffy give birth to eight puppies.
One pup looked different than the rest - she was so beautiful!
We kept her and named her Annie.
She has been a faithful companion ever since.
Friday she started walking somewhat wobbly, Saturday still wobbly and walking in circles then falling down. She could not get up on her own.
She has not gone to the bathroom since Friday morning so I know she is getting toxic.
I talked to the vet yesterday and he said the time has come for her to go to Heaven. This morning she will be put to rest.
Even though I know that this is the best for her my heart is still heavy with grief.
I will miss her dearly but she will be forever in my heart.
Good By Sweet Annie.

Oh I am so very sorry..I have been through that twice and I know the pain you are feeling. We can know how much they loved us by OUR tears.

I am saying a prayer for you that you might be comforted. Also sending you a big hug.
