An interesting fact about John Howland is that he fell off the Mayflower in the middle of the Atlantic during a storm, and was saved when he grabbed a rope. He later married Elizabeth Tilley of the Mayflower who had sailed with her parents John Tilley and Joan Hurst Tilley. There is a painting of John overboard the Mayflower on his biography on www.mayflowerhistory.com. John and Elizabeth are the 10th great-grandparents of my grandkids through their other grandmother.
