Bentons’ and New England history and Petri dish that was the Mayflower…

I found this interesting reading  http://books.google.com/books?id=4MYUAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA300&dq=benton+southernwood&lr=&cd=2#v=onepage&q=benton%20southernwood&f=false

Sometimes I think our ancestors (and ours are pretty far down on this list off Benton’s) lived through every gnarly and great thing that ever came down the pike…some were among the Huguenots, some actually stood as both the accused and the innocent at Salem;  they were kicked out of England (actually they paid off the Thug on the Throne)…they have perpetually achieved only one thing consistantly…survival. Here’s hoping we can continue in that vein. 

And this is just ONE branch of the family…yipes, I say…YIPES!
