MAYFLOWER MONDAY to Governor William Bradford


I dedicate this blog entry to my dear cousins, Alyne & Eric Anderson. They worked so hard back in the 1990's to document our Tupper lineage and bring it down to the current years. They went back to New Hampshire & Massachussetts and got the oooooooold birth/ marriage / death documents needed to fill in the line down to themselves. They found the old cemeteries, saw the old homesteads and met! TUPPER relatives in person. HOW COOL
When we started working on genealogy together they really encouraged me to document my own line and join the Society too. ( Alyne's father & my Grandmother were siblings, Arthur Evans & Alma Evans )
This took a lot of time & effort but it was fun to do and now after almost 3 years, I am joined in the "Mayflower Society". Now if my own decendents ever want to do it, I have done the work at least as far down as myself.

Jane & Edwards son, my GreatGrandfather who was E.W.M. Evans married Martha Tupper. It is thru Martha's Tupper ancestors that the line goes back to Govenor William Bradford of the Mayflower and the Pilgrims.
Pictures above are EWM Evans ( Jane's oldest son ) & Martha Tupper.

Happy Trails Everyone, Katie


  1. Congrats!!! I'm also joining the Society (and in California too) but have a ways to go.

  2. Thanks Leah, I applied yearrrrrs ago - denied. Since then got a lot more documents, BMD. & a lot of neat info that turned up while I was looking for stuff. Your Blogs are neat!
    Best WIshes, Katie

  3. Thanks for sharing the historical connection of your family with Joseph Scriven. For many years, I lived close to Port Hope, Ontario, where the latter died in 1886. If you'd like a picture of Mr. Scrivien, you can find one on the Cyber Hymnnal here...

  4. Congratulations! I wish I was eligible to join, but apparently my ancestors got here before the Mayflower showed up.
