Stories of the Pilgrims by Margaret Pumphrey

This is an EXCELLENT book which we read at Tidewater every year. This year my daughter Leah picked "Elizabeth Tilley" as her Pilgrim name and is waiting eagerly during read aloud time to hear her name come up in the story. It is filled with true anecdotes so if your ancestor came over on the Mayflower you should expect to hear his/her name mentioned!

This year my daughter Rebecca is in Kindergarten and she has chosen "Mary Allerton" as her Pilgrim name. Then I remembered something that I heard when I was a child, that we had an ancestor who came over on the Mayflower. I went to the genealogy and looked it up -- and sure enough! John Billington.

Rebecca will be so excited to share this with her class!!!
