Honor Roll of Original Immigrants

ship6

Dedicated to the memory of those ancestors who had the courage and perseverance to gather their families and cross the sea to a better life in America.

We, the many descendants, owe our everlasting gratitude to those brave souls who journeyed into the unknown in search of freedom and property, both of which they were denied in their native lands.
