Good morning, James - I wasn't aware that the Bushes and Howard Dean had a common ancestor.

HI James Dray - WOW!  I did not know any of that. To have ties all the way back to the first European woman to set foot in the new world is amazing. When you include 2 presidents in those descendants that fact is quite astonishing.

Hi James- what an interesting story. Sad to think of someone who arrives in a new country then loses her mother, and interesting to look at her lineage.

James, a very interesting story on the life of Many Chilton. So sad about losing her parents so early in life and especially with all the difficulties of the early pilgrims.  And ten children...a very special life.
