Don, I have two relative that came over on the Mayflower, one named Hopkins, the other Rogers died that first winter, the Plymouth Colony lost half their inhabitants. Interestingly the Hopkins relative was also a member of the earlier Jamestown colony. He was on his way back to England for supply's for the colony and was shipwrecked on one of the Bermuda islands, later rescued. My mother was recognized as a Mayflower descendant, just before she died. Took her years of research to qualify. Your mention of 1in 10 citizens being ancestors of Mayflower is correct. Also had an ancestor David Bushnell who built the"Turtle," recognized as the father of the submarine. Turtle was used during Rev. War but was not successful. my mother was a Bushnell. There's a replica displayed at Groton, Connecticut Naval sub base. Our history needs to be preserved and passed to the next generation, I've always been interested, every place I was stationed I learned the local history. Hopefully your comments will generate some interest and we'll hear from other members. Bruce LM#174
