Any American Revolution Ancestors?
This Satuday, April 18th, is the 333rd anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord which marked the commencement of the Revolutionary War.
I recently knocked down a brick wall this week and found about six generations of Everetts in Massachsetts going back to about 1630. Many of the Everetts were Minute Men and responded to the alarm sounded at Lexington and Concord.
I'll be posting a brief biographical sketch of these men. Perhaps you'll join me and let us all in on your "revolutionary" ancestors.
