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!

A Sad Day for our Pilgrims & Pioneers Family

This past Saturday my cousin lost his battle with colon cancer.
He was only 58 years old.
Life can be so short so I urge all of you to take the time for your family- do the things you want to do with them and say the things you want to say- memories are so precious- make sure you have some.

1830's Log Cabin in Georgia

I found this article this morning and thought many of you would enjoy it!

Constructed in the 1830s, this hand hewn, yellow pine cabin was occupied until the 1930s. The last family to live in its two rooms filled it to overflowing with 15 people. In 1959, the cabin was relocated to Callaway Gardens from neighboring Troup County. Here it serves as a reminder of the challenges our forefathers faced daily.
