The Lives of the Governors of New Plymouth

Like many of you, many of my early American ancestors lived in Plymouth,lives_of_the_governors Massachusetts.  My ancestral families remained living there for centuries and thus many of their descendants married throughout the years.

My ancestor, William Bradford was the second Governor of New Plymouth following John Carver in 1621.  He was succeeded by my uncle Edward Winslow in 1633, who was subsequently followed by uncle, Thomas Prence in 1634, who was followed by my uncle, Josiah Winslow in 1673, who was followed by my uncle Thomas Hinckley in 1680.

Given my lineal ties to all of these men, the book, “Lives of the Governors of New Plymouth and Massachusetts Bay” by Jacob Bailey Moore has long been a favorite book in my library.

Thanks to Google Books, everyone can enjoy the book online at any time of the day.
