Research finds Swanton man a Mayflower descendant
For four decades, Paulette Brewster researched her husband’s family ancestry to determine whether he was a descendant of the William Brewster who sailed to the New World aboard the Mayflower. The Swanton resident’s effort was rewarded over the weekend with the inductions of her husband, Frank Wayne Brewster, and her nephew, Waterville resident Michael Brewster, into the Toledo Colony of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants.
