Mayflower Descendant Featured At Byron Historical Society Meeting
Bryon native John Bird, a 10th generation descendant of Mayflower passenger Henry Samson, will be the guest speaker at the Byron Historical Society’s annual meeting Monday. The meeting will be at 7 p.m. at the Byron Town Hall and is open to the public. Bird’s presentation will focus on his ancestor’s travel to America as a 16-year-old, one of the 102 passengers aboard the Mayflower. Samson was among the 53 who survived the hardships of the first winter. The Samson family has been traced to Massachusetts, New York, Vermont and eventually to the Towns of Byron and Lomira.
