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!

I am thrilled!!


My 3rd great grandmother and her descendents has been the subject of many hours of research many times coming up empty handed- but last night I found this treasure. Cora Aber was my ggg grandmother Anna Dickerson Jones Aber Underhill's grand daughter- she married a half blood Chickasaw Indian named Henry McLish. This is a photo of their son Glenn. He was born in 1902 so I am guessing that this was around 1910. Photo from the archives of the Oklahoma Historical Society.
