Ten Oldest American Cities
According to an article entitled "10 Oldest Cities in the United States," posted on ThoughtCo., the oldest cities in our country, along with their founding date, are as follows: 
St. Augustine, Florida, September 8, 1585
Jamestown, Virginia, April 26, 1607
Sante Fe, New Mexico, 1607
Hampton, Virginia, 1610
Keycoughtan, Virginia, 1610
Newport News, Virginia, 1613
Albany, New York, 1614
Jersey City, 1617
Plymouth, Massachusetts, 1620
Weymouth, Massachusetts, 1622
As someone who was born and raised in New jersey, I was surprised to learn that Jersey City was older than Plymouth. Were you? Could you have family origins from one or more of this locations?
If you know of any ancestors that lived in one of this historic towns, please share your story. I am a descendant of Edward Thurston and Ann Loving of Martin's Hundred, Virginia, near Jamestown. Martin's Hundred was not founded until 1619, several years after Jamestown, but it still certainly makes the cut.
