Here, we are looking at a broad-scope generation rather than for the 25-year assumption that can be used for a family. We will use some lines of descendancy from Thomas and Margaret and a few of the closely related families. As well as look further at the 6th and 7th generations, we have to note that the 5th generation from Thomas' time was responsible for the start of the U.S. Here are some posts related to the theme of the Revolution and its follow-on conflict, 1812.
- Regimental History Series (July 2015)
- Spirit of '76 (March 2018)
- Henry Gardner, the Loyalist (October 2016)
- USS Merrimack - 1798 (June 2012)
- Gardner-Pingree house (and murder) (December 2011)
- Samuel Knapp Gardner (July 2011)
- Ebenezer Gardner of Maine (March 2011)

Looking at the Elizabeth's that we featured, earlier in posts, their generation (fuzzily picked, until further notice) is 5th. That wasn't planned.
The list is in order of the posts.
- Elizabeth (Gardner) Blanchard - 6th generation (Note: 07/29/2020 -- she was marked 5th until we started to follow the generational lines.)
- Elizabeth (Gardner) Gardner - 5th generation; her husband was 4th.
- Elizabeth (Gardner) Dabney Bridges Stevens - 5th generation.
It was the mention of the first Elizabeth in the American Ancestor's magazine that got the little study going. As noted, an Elizabeth (Gardner) Armory was mentioned even earlier; that was in reference to the "1st governor" reference that we saw in Dr. Frank's books.

07/26/2020 -- The 4th was involved with the Revolution, as well. They were trained for this via their support Crown in the French Indian War of the 1750s. We will look at that generation, as well.
07/28/2020 -- Have done several posts related to generations: 5th generation, 6th generation, 7th generation, 1900 back, American 100s, First five, and About generations.
