August 24, 1665, Bartholomew Stovall, my grandfather from nine generations past was born in Albury Surry, England. When Bartholomew reached the age of eighteen years, he boarded a the sea going ship, Booth and sailed to the new world of America.
Today, hundreds of thousands if not millions carry his DNA. Thank you George and Joan Stovall, parents of Bartholomew, for giving birth to our ground zero forefather here in the US. And Thank you Bartholomew for making that historic voyage.
