Honoring My Great Migration Ancestors

With Thanksgiving coming up tomorrow, I am grateful to my huge New England heritage and my ancestors who came over during the Great Migration (1620-1640).  The fact that I am an American and can live the privileged life I live I owe in part to these people's determination to start a new life in a new land.

Today in particular I think of my 10th great grandfather, Henry Tibbetts (abt 1596-1676), who arrived from England in 1635 to Massachusetts with his sister, Remembrance Tibbetts (1607-1667), and his wife Elizabeth (Austin) Tibbetts (abt 1596-1674) and their two children, Jeremiah (my ancestor) and Samuel.
