While the Mayflower was at sea, Elizabeth Hopkins gave birth
to the son they named Oceanus. Three days before land was sighted, a young boy
named William Butten died. While the Mayflower was in Provincetown Harbor
and the Pilgrims were looking for a place to settle,
Susanna White gave birth to a son they named Peregrine.
(The name means "one who journeys to foreign lands").
The third pregnant woman, Mary Allerton, gave birth to a stillborn son
on board the Mayflower, just as the first houses were being built
