Serendipity: to make discoveries, by accident and sagacity, of things not in quest of. That is the case with two postcards purchased online that ended up providing more than just a nice pilgrim picture. The recipients happen to be descendants of Mayflower passenger Constance Hopkins (Stephen's daughter), who married Nicholas Snow circa 1625..
The Landing of the Pilgrims postcard (right) is postmarked 1910 and was sent to [Thomas] Lathrop Snow. Lathrop's ancestry is documented in the History of Franklin County, Mass. He was born July 13, 1900. According to his WWI registration, he had blue eyes and brown hair and was of medium height. His father was Frank Herbert Snow, an insurance agent.. His grandfather, Barnabus Snow, was a blacksmith who was killed when thrown from his carriage in 1899.
