Mayflower Descendant~~ Samuel was a fifth generation Mayflower Descendant in the line of John and Priscilla Alden. He was the son of 4th. generation descendant John Wild [1691-1776] and Abigail (Bass) Wild [1697-Unknown]. He married three times, and his first wife was Lydia (Wetheroll) Wilde, and with her he had one daughter who was also named Lydia. His second wife was Mercy (Pratt) Wilde [1731-1794], who he married on May 9th., 1752, in Norton, Mass., when he was 20 years old. I am a descendant of their son Samuel Peter Wild [1760-1801], a 6th. Generation Mayflower Descendant. His 3rd. wife was Alice (Smith) Wilde. She was from England and was born on April 11th., 1771, and with her, he didn't have any children. Samuel traveled to England in 1769 to claim property and he died at the age of 62. May he rest in peace. Expectation: Most folks, as I've noticed, in pleasure an' strife, are always expecting too much out of life, they wail an' they fret, just because they don't get, the best o' the sunshine, the fairest o' flowers, the finest o' features, the strongest o' powers. They whine an' they whimper an' curse an' condemn, coz life isn't always bein' partial to them.~~~ Notwithstandin' the pain an' the sufferin' they see, they cling to the notion that they should go free: that they shouldn't share in life's trouble an' care, but should always be happy an' never perplexed, an' never discouraged or beaten or vexed. When life treats 'em roughly an' jolts 'em with care, they seem to imagine it's bein' unfair.~~~ It's a curious notion folks hold in their pride, that their souls should never be tested or tried. That others must mourn, an' be sick an' forlorn, an' stand by the biers of their loved ones an' weep, but life from such sorrows their bosoms must keep. Oh, they mustn't know what it means to be sad, or they'll wail that the treatment they're gettin' is bad. Now life as I view it means pleasure an' pain, an' laughter an' weepin' an' sunshine an' rain, an' takin' an' givin'; an' all who are livin' must face it an' bear it the best that they can, believin' great Wisdom is workin' the plan. An' no one should ever complain it's unfair, because at the moment he's tastin' dispair. ~Unknown~
