Immigrant Ancestor

In 1626, Thomas Stafford arrived in Plymouth Colony, New England. May have built there the first water powered grist mill in the colonies, though Savage in his Dictionary indicates that the Colonial Records that refer to the first mill there after June 1635 do not mention him.1,2
