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!

Antique Butter Churn ca 1850's

About a month ago I visited the rennovated Lincoln- Manahan here in my home town.
Abraham Lincoln spent the night there when he came to Sterling in 1856. This churn is in the kitchen of the house- note the crock jug too!
This is a crank style churn - not a dasher type

How beautiful.
Lincoln slept in many places...he slept at the Lincoln/Tallman house in Janesville, WI too...that man got around.
Thanks for sharing this gorgeous treasure.
