John Smith My 7X Great Grandfather Came To America March 2, 2016

th red breated finch  red breasted finch – I wonder if my immigrant ancestors were familiar with this bird

English Immigrant  Quartermaster John Smith was born in Lancashire England in 1594.  At age 30 he arrived in Virginia.  Or he arrived in Boston in 1630.  His father, James Smith, was born in England in 1570.  So far as I can ascertain James did not travel to America.
