Isaac Allerton, Mary Norris, Mary Allerton, and Degory Priest.
Mary Allerton married Thomas Cushman, who arrived on the Fortune. Mary Allerton Cushman's son Eleazer Cushman married Elizabeth Royal Coombs, great-granddaughter of Degory Priest, linking these two families from the Mayflower.
Several generations later, Lydia Cushman married Elihu Wood Sr., father of Isaiah Wood Sr.. Isaiah was hubby's 2d g-granddaddy on the Wood side.
The Wood fam genealogist was in England two months ago. He visited the Mayflower Pub, formerly owned by Captain Jones, and wrote me:
"They talk of the Mayflower departure as if it is current events. There is a very different perspective on history over there. 1620 was recent history."
Thankful for the Mayflower on this September 16th.
