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.

The recent sources since the advent of the internet have claimed a different narrative that John Dunham is not from Scrooby and not descended from royalty.
I have a family shield passed down in my family which is the same as the cover of Isaac Watson Dunham's book and I have confirmed with the British King of Arms that this is a genuine heraldry from 1450.
Sources stating Thomas Dunham is the father of John Dunham:
Volume 3 of Representative Men and Old Families of Southeastern Massachusetts, J.H. Beers & Co, 1912
Dunham genealogy: English and American branches of the Dunham family, Isaac Watson Dunham, 1907
