It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Ov11 Maj Gen Robert Overton b 1609 at Easington, Yorkshire, England. d on 2 July 1678 at London, Middlesex, England bur July 1678 at Seaton, Rutland, England.
Another source has:
Gen. Robert Overton disappeared from England, where he was a political prisoner, but he was supposed to have been the Robert Overton who lived on five acres in the Barbadoes, Parish of Christ Church, without a servant, where political prisoners were sent, and died there in December 1679. (History of the Cosby Family in America, by JSC).

Easington in East Riding Yorkshire, was a Puritan parish. Robert Overton attended puritan St.John's College at Cambridge. It was at this same time that Thomas Fairfax attended St.John's. At Christ College John Milton was attending and it was probably at this time that the Milton and Overton became friends.

He was a Major General and an adherent of Oliver Cromwell who appointed him Governor of Hull, Edinburgh and Aberdeen. When he could no longer support Cromwell he became a political prisoner in the Tower of London. His wife died of cancer while he was imprisoned.
