FAMILY IMMIGRANTS

What was the 'GREAT MIGRATION?'
( see http://www.greatmigration.org/ )
 
This term refers to the immigration of 20,000 English (British) immigrants who arrived between 1620 and 1640 along the shores of what was termed "New England.".  A surprising number of our GloverSmith family were among the passengers of the ships that crossed the Atlantic Ocean during this formative era in American history.

Although the Glover/Morgan lineage appears to have immigrated after this period (some @ 1640s-1650s, others in mid-1700's),  the Smith/Post family branches lead us to the earliest settlements of Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
