Thanks, Chris, from a descendant of the Fuller family (passengers on the Mayflower).

Thanks, Chris, from a descendant of the Fuller family (passengers on the Mayflower). 

I can't match that but my many-greats grandfather was Captain Richard Brackett who came to the Massachusetts Colony a few years later (1629) as a lad of seventeen. He later led the Braintree militia in King Phillip's War.  My father's mother was a Brackett.  She named him Richard after her famous ancestor.  I am named Richard after my father and, in turn, Captain Richard.

Ric,

When I think about the hardships endured by our ancestors in previous centuries, I feel guilty about complaining about any discomfort or inconvenience.

I think that this poem says it all:
