Mayflower Connection

I drew this picture when I was 20 years old and working as a secretary at a downtown mission.

It just seemed a lonely spot, and for some reason it drew my attention.

What I did not know when I drew the picture …

Did not find out until I was doing genealogy research at the public library in 2006 …

Is that this is where my mother’s father fell to his death from a scaffolding … many, many long years before I was even born.

He was an artist, I’ve been told.

His grandfather was a preacher.

His 9th great-grandfather was William Brewster — the man who wrote the Mayflower Compact.

God bless you, Grandpa
