Welcome To Pilgrims and Pioneers!
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!

Robert Woodson, 5th Great Grandfather of Jesse & Frank James
Robert Woodson b. 1634 m. Elizabeth Ferris, d. ca. 1707. Last known to be living in 1707, Henrico Co., VA. when he made a deed to his grandson, William and Joseph Lewis Woodson.
He married Elizabeth Ferris, daughter of Richard Ferris, of Henrico, with whom, among others, received a patent, 21, October 1687, for 1785 acres at White Oak Swamp in Varina Parish, in that county.
This man was the direct ancestor of Jesse Woodson James, and his brother, Alexander Franklin "Frank" James, the famous James Boys.
Robert2 Woodson married Elizabeth Ferris:

their son Robert4 Woodson (d. 1748/50) married Rebecca Pryor.
Their daughter Elizabeth married Shadrach Mims (1734-1777) and became the mother of
Elizabeth Mims (b. 1769) who married Robert Poor (1763-1801), a cornet in the American Revolutionary War. Their daughter in turn,
Mary Poor, (died 1825) married John James (1775-1827), son of William and Mary (Hinds) James of Goochland County, Virginia.
Their son Robert Sallee James, who died in the Gold Rush area of California, married Zerelda Cole and they had sons Frank James and Jesse James.

While doing family history research I found this picture posted. I was in shock. Jerusha Bumpus is my 4th great grandmother! She was born in 1746. The bottom of this sampler says: yrs 81 made so it would have been stitched in 1827. I do not know if the person that posted this picture actually has the sampler but if they do what a treasure!
I am sure that you have already guessed that I will be attempting to graph a pattern for this historical in the near future- yes I surely will!!

I discovered this quilt top when we moved into my husband's grandparents house 10 years ago.
It was made by my husband's grandmother. She passed away in 1974 so it is at least 38 years old.
The pattern has 6 point stars and it looks like to me that it is a scrap quilt form 1930's-1940's fabrics.
I had planned on finishing it but after 10 years I have to admit I will never do that.
It is unfinished but what is done is 80" wide x 84" long. A few of the solid green blocks have some light discoloration- it may be permanent but may not- a good washing may cure that.
I have not done so as I do not have the special soap needed to wash it in.
I am asking 30.00 for this top, plus 6.50 shipping
