As a girl, Becky was called "Sally Nally" by most of her family. According to Ted Whittenkraus, "Rebecca acquired the nickname of Sally because it sounded funny to call her Sally Nally. It never sounded all that funny to her and she much prefers the more formal." Her mom told me that her siblings teased her that if she married Bill Nally, her first child would have to be named "Sally".
Born during World War II in the south, where her parents were living. A little while later, Beck and the baby Sally got on a train bound for Worcester. Bill and the family dog followed. They lived for a while with the extended family, where Sally was very spoiled. About 3 years later the family moved to their own house up the street.
She graduated from Classical High School (Worcester) in 1962 and from Bates College in 1966. Her formal education includes 30 hours of graduate studies. Three years of teaching math followed her college graduation. About 1970 she relocated to Hartford, CT and was employed by Travelers Insurance Company off and on until her retirement in 2005.
She has been married for over 40 years. She and her husband had 2 children, one of whom is now deceased, and two grandchildren. Her husband is an avid motorcycle racer. She and her husband are active in their church and other community organizations.
Her interest in genealogy started at about age 12, and has been a continuing interest through out her life.

Relationship finder shows you and I as cousins through several ancestors. I would like to join the Mayflower Project to help determine if Mehitable Standish who is listed as a daughter of Josiah Standish is valid. I understand from another Standish descendant that she is not.
The relationship finder shows Myles Standish as my 9th grandfather through his son Josiah and Mehitable.
Thanks. Tom Culver-805

I am a direct and straight-line maternal ancestor of Clarissa Kibbe who married Ezra Blodgett. Ezra is the son of Hannah Alden and Joshua Blodgett. I am working on this line and am particularly interested in other mtDNA descendants of this same line. I am also currently at the end of my Mayflower Society application and simultaneously, the DAR application. Thanks!

I added more sources for Elizabeth Fuller-79 Rowley - both to the G2G question and to her profile. Would you please take a look to see if you feel that enough research has been done?
Thank you, Sharon

Yes, Please add my name to the Mayflower Project. Richard Warren is my 9 x great grandfather through Clarence A Warren - all males from there! I am pre-1700 certified. I'm currently working on Richard Warren's (Mayflower) son Nathaniel and will be improving Richard himself as well as Nathaniel's son, another Richard (3rd generation) I suppose that could lead to many more cousinly improvements!!!!!!
