This is a short experiment to see if I can rank for the phrase “Thomas Blossom Obama”. It is not merely experimental, however, President Obama actually IS a descendant of Thomas Blossom who came to Plymouth Colony on a ship called Mayflower (yes, another one with that name) in 1629.
Blossom lived in Leiden, Holland and tried to come over on the Speedwell but was rebuffed as Speedwell proved unseaworthy. He was a deacon of the Plimoth church and died in the contagion of 1633. Thus is the Thomas Blossom Obama connection.
So here we are on the anniversary of our nation’s birth and this post is number 4 on Google’s first page. Happy Birthday America!
BTW that’s Paul Atchison as Peregrine White in the photo.
