"On April 8, 1630, Isaac Stearns and family set sail from Yarmouth, England in the good shipp Arrabella and arrived in Salem, Mass on the 12th of June..." And so the saga of a family history in the new world begins. Genealogy for me is more than tracing the roots and branches of a family tree. It is putting the leaves on the tree that is really exciting. The story of the Arrabella, the gun lost at the battle of Bunker Hill, General Washington's tent master, a diary of prisoner at Andersonville. It's these things that make genealogy a living, breathing history for me. Happy hunting!
NOTABLES AMONGST THE LEAVES: Asa Pollard - first person killed at the battle of Bunker Hill; Jonathan Corwin - magistrate of Salem during the witch trials; George Corwin - Sheriff of Salem during the witch trials; T.S. Eliot - poet; Patrick Swayze - actor; Phineous Stearns - Boston Tea Party & Lexington Alarm; Clara Barton - American Red Cross founder and four United States Presidents: Benjamin Harrison(23rd), Franklin Delano Roosevelt(32nd), and 4 other presidents
SPECIAL: Looking or descendants of Chrisoph Bender born in 1598 at Horn, Schultheib, Simmern, Germany
