This undated image released by Candlewick Press shows the cover of the children’s book “The Boy Who Fell Off the Mayflower, or John Howland’s Good Fortune” by Irish illustrator P.J. Lynch. Howland fell overboard into the Atlantic Ocean, was hauled back aboard, and made it through the first brutal winter in the New World. He married fellow passenger Elizabeth Tilley, lived with her into their 80s, and had 10 children and 88 grandchildren. More Americans can trace their roots to Howland than to any other of the first pilgrims. (Candlewick Press via AP)
