I see Plymouth rock has been defaced by a Johnny come lately and it got me thinking..... When and where did your oldest ancestors descend to America?

1919ish
As for Plymouth Rock I have no idea what 508MOF is besides 508 being a local area code I had as a kid when I lived up there but it was on the north shore, Plymouth is in the south shore.

Late 1700s from Jolly old England. They were part of the royal family and apparently got kicked out, or however the hell that works.

Oh, and 5% of me was here before the white man showed up.

Use to keep the boat at Brewers Marine right by the rock. Hopefully it can be cleaned up.

Ancestor was a Scottish Jacobite, hang or get transported to the colonies around 1730. Ended up in Virginia.

Mother's side... early 1800's from Germany. Settled in Ohio, then Indiana territories... farmed.

Grandfather on Dad's side left Germany in 1936 as a lad with his family... Hamburg area. Apparently they saw the writing on the wall and decided no time like the present to bail the F out of there.

Dad's Dad came from Scotland in 1908. Dad's Mom's family came from England in the early 1700s

Mom's Mom's family came from Germany in about 1800. Mom's Dad's family came from England in the mid 1700s.

I still need to hit up Ancestry.com to find out what % Cherokee I am.

Dad's grandparents came from Ireland to Boston in the 1800's. Probably potato famine time. Mom's mom side was the same, but through Nova Scotia first. Mom's dad side was England in the mid 1800's too I believe. Claimed ties to William the Conqueror. But I bet a good portion of England is descendants of his.
