ADDITIONS, MODIFICATIONS AND NEW PAGES!

 

  1. You may remember my mentioning that I'd written a "brief" history of our family. Well, I've posted it to the site and invite you to have a look. Be sure to mark your place, though, because it's not as brief as I'd originally intended!

    See the gravestone photo (bottom of the page) for Emma (Fowler) Holt (eldest daughter of Great Grand-Uncle Samuel F. Fowler, the preacher).

    See the marriage record of Grand-Uncle Herb and his first wife, Helena Tamlyn on the documents page

    New pictures on Herb's photo pageand on Grandpa Fred's photo page

  2. Oh, where to start?

    • Thanks to cousin, Fred McLeod, we have another batch of new documents. We have so many now that I've begun flagging the new ones so you can see them at a glance

    • Thanks to new-found relative, Nancy Garver, of Richmond, Virginia, we have a wonderful new photo of the Rev. Samuel Flewelling Fowler (Great-grandma Abbie's eldest brother). This one is very valuable because it's likely the only picture in existence of his first wife (new photos always at the bottom of the page)

    • Thanks to cousins Doug and Fred McLeod, we have more new photos on Grandpa Fred's photo page

    • More photos on the Wakefield Photos Page

  3. See the gravestone photos (bottom of the page) for Abram and Mellie Fowler (Great-Grandma Abbie's brother). They are buried just a few feet away from Great-Grandpa John, Great-Grandma Abbie and their daughter, Irva, and I probably walked right past their gravesite when I was in this cemetery in 2000. Thanks to my Yankee pal, Dottie, in Massachusetts, for taking the photos and sending them to me.

    I have also posted a photo of Uncle Lawrence McLeod's gravestone in Savona on this page.

    More new obituaries, death records and marriage records on the documents page
