Heather Wilkinson Rojo, of the Nutfield Genealogy blog, has started a new meme for Thanksgiving—to list your ancestors who arrived on the Mayflower.
I know of only one: James Chilton, believed to be the oldest passenger on board. A signer of the Mayflower Compact, he died 8 December 1620 while the ship was anchored in Provincetown Harbor.
Here is my line:
