Are you a descendant of William White, Mayflower passenger, who died in February 1621 ( a few months after the Mayflower landed in Cape Cod Bay)?
After 392 years, a group has come together in February 2013 to honor him with his own Society, The Pilgrim William White Society. Along with William White we also honor his wife, Susanna, and their two children, Resolved and Peregrine.
|Peregrine White's cradle is on display at the|
Pilgrim Hall Museum, Plymouth, Massachusetts
He was born 19 or 20 November 1620 while the Mayflower
was docked in Cape Cod Bay, the first child born to the
Pilgrims in the New World.
We are making good progress in forming the Society. Those serving as interim officers are:
Governor: Prarie Counce, firstname.lastname@example.org
Deputy Governor: James (Jim) Fowler, email@example.com
Secretary: Susie Wuest, firstname.lastname@example.org
Treasurer: J. Benese Scherrer, email@example.com
Historian: Barbara Williams, firstname.lastname@example.org
Elder: D. Alan Smith, email@example.com
There two (2) different applications for membership. One application is designated "members," and is for someone who is descended from William and Susanna White through either Resolved or Peregrine; with approved lineage papers by the GSMD Historian General; and who is a member in good standing with their State Society (current dues are paid). The other application is designated "friend," and is for someone who has an interest in The Pilgrim William White Society, such as a spouse or perhaps children or grandchildren who have not yet made application to GSMD. A "friend" may not vote nor hold an office.
The $25.00 application fee is a one-time fee to help with start-up expenses such as opening a bank account, applying for articles of organization, obtaining a domain name and server space for a website, etc.
Yearly dues are $15.00. Instructions in regard to writing a check and mailing the application/applications are stated on the application forms. One check for multiply applications is acceptable.
We are excited about the exchange of family information and pictures. We'll be using email until another format is established.
If you have questions or comments regarding the applications or anything else, please don't hesitate to contact Susie Wuest or myself, Prarie Counce.
