I would blame the tryptophan for the delay in this recap, but since it was supposed to go out the day before Thanksgiving…
Last week, I wrote about my great-great-grandfather Peter Starkey, who seems to have lived life just under the radar.
Fix yourself a yummy turkey sandwich, leave a link to your post from last week, and gobble up the good stories from last week. It’s much better than fighting crowds at the mall.

#48, in case you want to stay closer to Thanksgiving, is my Pilgrim Ancestor William BASSETT who arrived in the new world too late for the first Thanksgiving.http://ancestorsinaprons.com/2014/11/52-ancestors-william-bassett-missed-thanksgiving/
