If you are a descendent of Chloe Skiff (wife of David Dayton Junior, born 1766), you may already know that you have at least four Mayflower passengers in your ancestry. In case you weren’t aware, they are John Tilley, his wife Joan Rogers, their daughter Elizabeth and her husband John Howland who is famously known as the boy that fell off the boat as portrayed in the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving special called Mayflower Voyagers (link has been removed due to copyright). They are a very interesting group. In fact, years ago, when our daughter was supposed to read a biography and write a book report, she selected Elizabeth Tilley, not even knowing that Elizabeth was her ancestor. It has been observed that the last names in the line have changed only three times from John Howland to Chloe Dayton, with Chipman and four generations of Skiffs between.
