Gentle Friends, stitching away on CTA... here's a snaperoo..
.. I had an email this week about this piece and if I had any connection to the Mayflower.... actually I do... through my mother's family we can trace back to Fear Brewster Allerton and her Mother Mary (Wentworth?) Brewster 1569? - 1627 who did sail on the Mayflower with her two youngest children, Love and Wrestling (both sons). Fear and Patience were left behind in the Netherlands and followed in 1623 on the "Anne."
That first winter all but 4 of the women that arrived at Plimouth Colony died. Mary, one of the survivors was present at the 1st Thanksgiving. When Fear arrived she married the widowed Isaac Allerton 20 years her senior. They had two children, Sarah (who died young) and Isaac Jr who became a Colonel, planter, merchant, and trader in colonial America. So, Mary would be my 12th great grandmother... I was thinking of stitching her name a different color than the rest...any thoughts??
Thanks for stopping by do stop again!
Good Thoughts! Good Words! Good Deeds!
