This message is particularly for Warren descendants but anyone else proud of their Cape Cod forebears or Mayflower Descendants are welcome to get in in the act. Read Alvan Graham Clark's writeup in the Warren section for the Mayflower connection and follow the link to the article about the Clark Refractor at the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, AZ (where Pluto, the planet not the dog, was discovered.) It was commissioned by Percival Lowell in 1895 and it (along with other telescopes made by Alvan Clark & Sons) helped him do important work in the observation of Mars and it was later used to examine other celestial bodies as part of Lowell's mission to study relatively close-in portions of our universe (including double planets and the expanding nature of the universe.) The Clark Telescope and its building are part of what put the Lowell Observatory on the National Register of Historic Places. You can visit it most evenings as part of the tours of the Lowell Observatory.
The author is an Arizona research historian who enjoys the challenge of looking for Mayflower descendants, hers and anyone else's.
