Just got started on the Pillsbury Family line, should be interesting. I know that Hannah Pillsbury married Joseph Hoit and that was our beginning link to the Pillsbury family line. I know I checked and found out that we are relatives of the founders of Pillsbury, Inc. but of course, not a close tie but we share dna. That's about all I know currently, hope by the end of the week that I will know more.
I just started and am finding a lot of our relatives were in the American Revolutionary War. I love studying and learning about the American Revolutionary War. It always amazes me about the war that was on the land that we currently lived on. I like to imagine the spirit that they had fighting for their land and beliefs. Sometimes it was neighbor against neighbor, some had uniforms, some didn't and NO SHOES. I can't imagine going out in no shoes and in the snow. I think if someone knocked on my door and I opened it and they told me I had to go out.........in the snow..........march, fight, kill or be killed that the door would swing shut real fast with me still inside the house! I don't think I evolved well......there goes Darwin's theory right INSIDE the door!
