    Gudrid Thorbjarnardóttir: First European Mother in the New World

    https://www.smithsonianmag.com/histo...ago-180977126/

    More than 1,000 years ago, a woman named Gudrid sailed off the edge of the map with her husband and a small crew, landing in what the Vikings called Vinland and what is now Canada. She lived in and explored Newfoundland and the surrounding environs for three years, bearing a son before returning home to Iceland. Ultimately, she made eight crossings of the North Atlantic Sea and traveled farther than any other Viking, from North America to Scandinavia to Rome—or so the Viking sagas claim.
    Evidently Gudrid Thorbjarnardóttir was a strong and remarkable woman, gave birth to her son Snorri in Vinland, first European child born in the Americas.
    "Almost every name belongs to well-known families of English stock....these soldiers were of ancient American lineage"- Prof. N.S. Shaler on the 1st Kentucky "Orphan" Brigade, Confederate States Army
