First Donut Maker

[click image to enlarge]

Captain Hanson Crockett Gregory was the inventor of the donut (also spelled doughnut) and is buried in the sailors cemetery in the Snug Harbor section of Quincy. I am a definite doughnut fan (coconut) what about you? Come back tomorrow for another doughnut first from Quincy.

I don't have a sweet-tooth, they don't do it for me. However, it's nice to be remembered for something; well spotted.

I always thought Duncan invented the Donut. (Just kidding!)
Very interesting fact.

Great Quincy claim to fame. I like custard ones best!

I hate donuts. They are one of the worst things for you!

Snug Harbor sounds so much nicer than Germantown (this monument is a stone's throw from home).

Love the photos.
