I have been tooting my horn because my family is related to some of the earliest white people to settle in Virginia; and I do not want to leave that topic without affirming that none of us white people were here first. It goes without saying that the true FFV’s were the natives.
From what I can tell now, my immediate ancestors did not arrive in Virginia until a few years after the original Jamestown settlers arrived. My ancestor William Claiborne arrived in 1621, and the Jamestown settlers arrived in 1607.
