You’re talking about my 8th great grandfather here, and I have his book “Of Plimouth Plantation” By the way, do you know how many 8th great grandparents we all have? There are 1,024 for anyone in my generation.

HI “cousin”

He’s my 7th great great grandfather - through 5 lines.

Elder Brewster in one of my “8ths”, John and Priscilla, (My late aunt was ‘Priscilla Alden...’,) another of my ‘7ths’, Capt. Standish, another ‘8th’ and so on.

My grandmothers maiden name was Bradford, straight down - and a great grandmother’s was Standish...etc.

Which reminds me, column deadilne tonight...for Thursday. So will, of course, do “Thanks to the Pilgrims” column, as I have for nearly 30 years ;o)

I keep thinkging, but for that hardly, brave and resolute bunch, I would likely have been born in England. And as bad as things are here now, I feel lucky.

I’m Thankful for my little house nestled in the forest - but wish it were even further into the woods.

I wish WE had a ‘new world’ we could set sail for!
