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!

What a nice Surprise!!

Back in the Spring of 2008 a big portion of this tree came down but was hung up by a wide strip of bark.
My husband is not in good enough health to take the limb( that is double and the size of a full tree) down and we coukd not afford to have it done by a tree sevice. So it has been inthis state for the past two years.
Today a truck drove into our yard and ny husband and I were shocked at first. Them my son and two of his friends got out with a chain saw and started sawing on the limb/tree. It has now been dropped from the main trunk and most of the debris has been cleaned up!
I am so thankful to my son and his friends!!
