All Things Nantucket

Moby Dick Mary Morrell Folger  Working on my genealogy this morning I found a reference remotely connecting an ancestor to Herman Melville’s novel Moby Dick.  And this novel of course makes me think of that magical island of Nantucket.  One of the daughters of Isaac Morrill, my 9th Great Grandfather, married a Folger and Mary Morrill Folger is mentioned in the novel.
