Spanish Preceded English in America Though
As far as I can tell, there was no Jose Mier on the Mayflower when it landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620. There may have been a Jose Mier somewhere in America at the time since the Spanish had explored part of what would be the Western United Stated in 16th century. You never know. By the way, 2020 marks the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims’ landing.
All this is a lighthearted way of bringing the Thanksgiving theme into my site. I wish every Jose Mier and everyone else here in the United States a very happy Thanksgiving.
