Mayflower Ancestors

In 1620, the English Separatists, better known as the Pilgrims, departed their homeland in search of religious freedom. After 66 grueling days at sea, their ship arrived in the New World. The rest, as they say, is history.

These people did not intend to make their marks in the annals of time; instead, they were just searching for a place to call home. My spouse’s family owes their very existence to these people. For that, we express our own thanksgiving to these ancestors (names in bold were passengers on the Mayflower):

William Mullins (1578 – 1621) and Alice (Atwood) Mullins (1574 – 1621), my husband’s 11th great-grandparents through his mother’s father’s line, whose daughter Priscilla Mullins (1602 – 1688) married John Alden (1599 – 1687):
Joseph Alden (1627 – 1696), son of John and Priscilla
Sarah Alden (1665 – 1713), daughter of Joseph
Joseph Crossman (1690 – 1776), son of Sarah
James Crossman (1721 – ), son of Joseph
Asa Croasman (1765 – 1828), son of James
Asa Croasman (1794 – 1864), son of Asa
Mary Crossman (1822 – 1904), daughter of Asa
Matilda “Janie” Jane Robinson (1857 – 1929), daughter of Mary
Albert Barton Harwick (1886 – 1964), son of Matilda Jane
Max Clinton Harwick (1907 – 1998), son of Albert Barton and my spouse’s grandfather

George Soule (1593 – 1679) and Mary (Beckett) Soule (1590 – 1676), my husband’s 10th great-grandparents through his mother’s father’s line:
Nathaniel Soule (1637 – 1699), son of George and Mary
Susannah Soule (1685 – 1733), daughter of Nathaniel
Joseph Oliver (1706 – 1790), son of Susannah
Joseph Oliver (1739 – 1790), son of Joseph
Patience Oliver (1766 – 1828), daughter of Joseph
Asa Croasman (1794 – 1864), son of Patience
Mary Crossman (1822 – 1904), daughter of Asa
Matilda “Janie” Jane Robinson (1857 – 1929), daughter of Mary
Albert Barton Harwick (1886 – 1964), son of Matilda Jane
Max Clinton Harwick (1907 – 1998), son of Albert Barton and my spouse’s grandfather
