Gowan Wilson

We seem to be related.

Would you have any more information about Gowan Wilson and where in Scotland his ancestors are?

Is there a duplicate memorials for him?

Hello Melinda

Thank you for creating his memorial page.
I would like to be able to read the inscription on his gravestone if this is possible. Is there a larger picture of the grave site??

Hi, would you happen to have a larger pic of the grave markers, or were you able to read them? John and Hannah Ayer are my 11th gr grandparents and I am really curious to see what is written on the markers. And, thank you for posting the pic!

Samuel Smith photo, #6651026
Just noticed the same discrepancy with this picture. In the History of Hadley p. 437, it reads: "Lieut. Samuel, s of Joseph (3) [Joseph is son o John who is son of the Samuel who died in 1680], was b. in 1715; d. Jul 20, 1767, of an apoplectic fit brought on by overwork on a very hot day while in the hay field, a. 52."

Hi Melinda.

I was noticing that the Samuel Smith grave marker photo you posted is probably the wrong one. The memorial refers to a date of death of 1681 and your photo shows a date of death of 1767.

Was this Samuel a son of the Samuel the memorial is for?

10th great grandfather
I notice a few people, including you, are 10th great grandchildren to Humphrey Turner. He is also my 10th great grandfather! I would love to share information with you or anybody else with the same lineage about our family tree.

RE: Bronson photos
Why of course, the well known John Bronson 1602-
for one...;-) I have found so many things .

My ancestor is his son John ,his son Isaac, his son John, his son Joseph, his son Seba, his son Azor , his son Horatio Gates, his daughter Antoinette Bronson who married George Shafer, thier son Elmer Shafer ,their daughter Anna Mabel who married Oliver Vaubel, their daughter Helene Mae Vaubel my mother. ....

Just think how many of us there must be!
So far I have met so many descendents of my ancestors, sometimes as far back as this.
Isnt the internet amazing! It sure made geneology easier and this website is the best.

Thanks so much for getting back to me , and giving me permission to use the photos.

same 10th grandfather
I noticed that you also claim Humphrey Turner as your 10th great grandfather. We have that in common. Plus my baby sister is named Mindy, so I took it as a sign to contact you. If you would like to compare family history you can email me at
