As I celebrate Thanksgiving today I find I am thinking about the 53 Pilgrims who celebrated a harvest festival in the autumn of 1621. Wouldn't it be great to be a guest at that festival?
The following families were present at the first Thanksgiving. My ancestors are in bold.
Alden, Allerton, Billington, Bradford, Brewster, Brown, Carver, Chilton, Cooke, Crackston, Eaton, Ely, Fuller, Gardiner, Goodman, Hopkins, Mullins, Rogers, Standish, Tilley, Trevor, Warren, Winslow
For more information on the First Thanksgiving, take a look at the Pilgrim Hall Museum.
