Today’s Tidbit | William Bradford and Alice Carpenter Southworth Wedding

This Saturday, August 14th, Plimoth Plantation will re-enact the August 14, 1623 wedding of Governor William Bradford and Alice Carpenter Southworth. William’s first wife, Dorothy May, drowned while the Mayflower was anchored in Provincetown Harbor in 1620. Alice came to Plymouth aboard the Anne in July 1623, following the death of her first husband, Edward Southworth. William and Alice are my 9th great grandparents.
