The upcoming episode of Who Do You Think You Are? features Sadsbury Meeting!
Who Do You Think You Are? is a program on The Learning Channel (TLC) that traces the ancestry of celebrities. This coming Tuesday, August 13, at 9 p.m., the program will trace the ancestry of Zooey Deschanel of the show The New Girl (Fox network).
Zooey’s ancestor was a member of Sadsbury Meeting in the mid 1800’s and is buried in our burial ground. There is also a connection to the Christiana Resistance of 1851.
For those of you who may have watched the show Bones starring Emily Deschanel, Zooey and Emily are sisters.
