Happy 391st Thanksgiving, Pilgrims (1620)!

(Thanksgiving did not become an official holiday until 1863)


our family at First Feast
We have eight Pilgrim ancestors who sailed on the Mayflower: seven through Wealthea Bradford Hatch's ancestry (William Bradford, William, Mary, and Love Brewster, Stephen and Elizabeth Hopkins, and Francis Cooke), and one through Asa Calkin's line (Myles Standish).
