“Got for it.”
The thing most unique to me is, the fact that all four of my ancestor surnames came over during the 10 year span(1630-1640) called “The Great Migration.” The Stearns and Fletcher families settled in the Watertown/Concord Massachusetts area during the 1630’s and migrated north into New Hampshire settling several of the border towns Dunstable/Merrimack/Amherst/Milford moving to West/central part of the state around New London/ Goffstown areas. The Chase and Nelson lines settled the Newbury Massachusetss/ Hampton New Hampshire areas during the 1640’s and removed to the same West/Central towns. They all were either early proprietors or surveyors of roads. The long line of farmers forms my direct line. They were part of the Grange and Masons Societies from their early years. I have lived in the greater Boston Massachusetts area, the New Hampshire seacoast and the rural areas of New Hampshire, that my ancestors help settle. This gives me a unique view of the different cultures these communities have become.
That’s quite a heritage you have June! I have often wondered what it would be like to live in the same place as my ancestors.
