What you’ll see at the Mary Chilton Winslow Grave: Just next to Deacon William Paddy’s marker is a tiny stone belonging to Mary (Chilton) Winslow. Mary was the first European woman to disembark the Mayflower when it arrived in Plymouth in 1620. She was only twelve years old at the time of the ship’s arrival and she was actually only one of thirty females who survived the overseas voyage. Unfortunately Mary’s father did not survive and passed away on the journey.
