Mayflower Ship Survives
After transporting 102 pilgrims to the new world in 1621, the Mayflower ship returned to England where it sat unused for several years after Captain Christopher Jones, who was also part owner of the ship, died at age 52. He had been weakened by the rigorous trips across the Atlantic. Jonesí widow, along with the other owners, put the ship up for sale as salvage after it fell into disrepair.
