On July 14, 2007, I had an opportunity (along with my wife, Barbara), to visit the little church in the village of Millbrook, of Bedfordshire, in England, where our ancestor, John Stiles, was christened in 1595. This was very exciting, as it was a completion of a trek, started some 41 years ago, when I found out that our family came from this little town, before immigrating to Windsor, Connecticut. There is a plaque on the wall in that church, put there by an organization called The Stiles Family in America, commemorating the Stiles Family Party's immigration.
