A Grinnell Was A Co-founder of the Society of Mayflower Descendants PDF Print E-mail

As I sit here in my very comfortable home reading the The Mayflower Quarterly Diamond Jubilee Edition, published in celebration of the 75th anniversary of The Mayflower Quarterly, “the primary means of communication by the General Society of Mayflower Descendants”1, I again think about the treacherous and very dangerous journey our Pilgrim Ancestors experienced onboard the Mayflower during the fall months crossing the Atlantic Ocean and indeed, during the first winter when more than half of their number died.

With a deep desire to honor my Pilgrim Ancestors, I have filed nineteen (19) initial and supplemental applications which have been approved by the General Society; I have also joined The Pilgrim Henry Samson Kindred, the Delano Kindred, and The Pilgrim John Howland Society, all in an effort to pay tribute to their ideals, their stamina, and their willingness to be governed by a communal, mutual agreement outlined in the Mayflower Compact.

Again, from the Mayflower Quarterly Diamond Jubilee Edition, “The General Society was established in January 1897 by four State Societies (New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania).” 2
