My friend Arthur Bicknell (Ithaca HS 1969) composed a comix about T-day when he was 12 years old. A friend of his in cleaning out boxes from his mother's attic ran across this delightful artifact. Arthur has given me permission to reproduce it for your pleasure and delight.
A portion of our family came over not on the Mayflower but possibly on the next boat to follow. They came from Northern England via Holland to New Amsterdam, where they then along with the Montgomery family cross pollinated their way up the Hudson to eventually end up in the Finger Lakes Region of NY State. As Arthur says, the storks must have cried for us too.
Another portion was Seneca, had been here in the USA for a while.
Another portion, the latecomers were from Germany, France, Ireland, Scotland and who knows what else.
