Favorite Ancestors: William Brewster
Elder Brewster has to be included! My Mayflower ancestor! Part of the inclusion is because of the journey to discover that he was an ancestor. A marriage record was the key. I have discussed that in the Joshua Hempstead diary post a few weeks ago. Elizabeth Dart married John Hazen in 1726. The catch was that Elizabeth was a Dart by marriage, not birth. Elizabeth Turner was Brewster's descendant. I lost a handful of ancestral families in uncovering Elizabeth, but gained another handful!
