I had no doubt that you were decended or related to people who fought in the war.
Hugh fuller, a former contributor, was related to a Fuller who was the Surgeon General for the Army that Plymouth colony fielded at many times during the bitter struggle.
In "Mayfolwer" it describes Governor Bradfor, I believe, personnly nersing Massaoit through a cholera epidemic.
Yet This governor's successors and the descendants of the first 'wave" of Plymouth colonists were fighting a vicious was with Metacomet )King Philip) and his brother known as King Alexander (his indian name i do not recall), the two sons of Massasoit.
If I have not noted it before, they tribe under Metacomet persuaded the "Nipmucks" whose home was in the Worcester area,
The hill on which my alma mater is located was the location of a Nipmuck stronghold names mount St. James by the Jesuits who founded the College of the Holy Cross in 1843.
The Nipmucks called mount st. james Mt. "Pakachoag" and the sub group of the H.C. Glee Club were named the "Paks".
So, the ghosts of the past are unknowingly brought forward in innocuous names.
In 1843 the travel to Holy Cross was no mean feat-even from Bost and more especially from New york and Philadelphia for R.C. Students who did not wish to attend the infant IV league schools.
I may well have been that, in those times, Roman Catholic students, were somewhat dicriminated against by Famous Colleges founded earlier, such as harvard.
It was partially in response to that possibility result that the Jesuits founded the College as the Jesuits were a successfull creation of the "counter reformation", Much as the Knights of Columbus were formed as a Catholic Mirror Organization to the much older Society of Freemason.
Like a Freemason I cannot tell you a thing about the K of C, even though a remain a low grade Knight.
