Are you a descendant of Joseph METCALF (1598/9 - 1665), an early settler at Ipswich, Massachusetts?

The Felton Family Association held it's 27th annual reunion at the Felton homesteads (circa 1644) in Peabody, Massachusetts. We learned about our connections to the Salem witch trials, genealogy, toured the two side by side (father and son, Nathaniel Felton Jr. and Sr.) Felton homesteads, and shared lunch and dinner.  The youngest attendee was also named Nathaniel Felton! 
Mary Kate Felton, President of the Felton Family Association, welcomed everyone to the 27th annual Felton Reunion in Peabody, Massachusetts Cora Felton Anderson, from Washington state, gave a genealogy talk to the attendees, ...

A double tombstone from Bedford, New Hampshire.  Elder William Moor's name is inscribed, died 1789, but his wife's side is left blank except for her name.  Even the epitaph "My glass is run" is missing the word "run" on her side!
