Turns out one of the Connecticut guys (at this point in the tree, everyone is so _thoroughly_ documented that it is really just a matter of following links) was brought to Connecticut from Concord, Massachusetts where he was born in 1638. That was a while ago and he was just a baby, so I was thinking the previous generation had come over on a boat and who know just which boat that might be. . .

But no. It was the Planter. Still. Kinda cool. And I've got lots of other lines in this batch yet to rattle through. :-)
