The last two newsletters of the National Society Daughters of Colonial Wars (NSDCW), the Tudor Rose, has featured images of the interior restoration work needed at the meetinghouse in Plymouth, MA (bought by the General Society of Mayflower Descendants (GSMD) in 2017.) The building dates to 1896 but the site is where the original Pilgrim meetinghouse, used for both civil and religious gatherings, was built in 1621. The national leader of a lineage society typically has a "president's project" for which she or he raises funds and NSDCW president Alice Strouse Ellingsburgh is focusing on the interior gallery walls of the meetinghouse, to which the NSDCW will contribute $15,000 that an anonymous donor will match to make the total $30,000. Checks or money orders payable to "National Treasurer NSDCW" can be sent to the National President's Project Chair Sandy Sidler, 1218 Elm St., North Fargo, ND 58102. Many female Mayflower descendants are eligible for membership in the NSDCW on the basis of descent from colonial military and civilian leaders: Myles Standish, Stephen & Giles Hopkins, Edward Winslow, Resolved & Peregrine White, John Alden, William Bradford, Joseph Rogers, Henry Samson, Love Brewster, Francis & John Cooke, and probably others.
Dr. Maura Mackowski is an Arizona research historian who enjoys the challenge of looking for Mayflower descendants, hers and anyone else's.
