Hi Linda, would you like a transfer of Hannah's memorial to your account? She is not a family member of mine. Regards, Nadeen

RE: Phebe Dowe

Well, you should check out the rest of the memorials for the Dowe family in Elmwood. I added photos for 6 graves in all, Phebe's husband Abraham (1714 - 1783) as well as the two other couples :

Benjamin Dowe (1755 - 1835) and Hannah Phillips (1755 - 1805)

Benjamin Dowe Jr (1780 - 1833) and Hannah M Gove (1770 - 1848)

I haven't taken time to investigate the family, I'm not related, but it would appear that these people are all related, three generations starting with Abraham. I will eventually look into other Dowe family members possibly buried here but a local Seabrook native told me that the name most likely got changed to Dow somewhere down the line as there are many Dow families in Seabrook but Dowe was not a name familiar to him.

Interesting side note : These 6 people appear to be buried from right to left, in death order. So husbands and wives are not side by side.

In case you didn't know, they are all buried in what was the Quaker Cemetery, so they were all Quakers.

Wyatt Brennan Family
Hi Linda. Greetings from Ireland! Firstly, thank you for the wonderful work you have done and submitted to the findagrave website. I too have an interest in family history/genealogy. I am particularly interested in this family, as a member of the Brennan family, (a direct descendant of Elizabeth Church's brother James), has contacted me in relation to their Irish roots. Would you by any chance have any information on the family of Hannah's husband William? If not, would you be interested in the information which has been passed on to me about this family? Regards, P Cusack.

The Church Family
Hi Linda,
I saw some e-mails between you and other people for the Church Family. My maiden name is Church. I am on and have had a difficult time working on and finding info for the Church side. I was hoping to possibly converse with you sometimes on the Church family tree. I did talk to(e-mail) someone once that beleives Waitstill S Church's Father is Thomas Montgomery-Born-22 Jun 1696 in Dublin,Ireland-Died-15 Jun 1758 in Pennsylvania. He said that Waitstill has a different last name because Waitstill was Thomas's first, and also illegetimate, son.This could explain the middle name of Montgomery for Waitstils son, Johnathon Montgomery Church. He said that Waitstill was also born in Ireland. He also said Waitstill's mothers name was Hannah Church but I have found nothing concrete to back that up at all. Thank you so much for your time and if you could let me know where you fit in the tree that would be great! Waitstill is my 6th great grandfather. Becky Church Bodell

If what I am reading is true on Find A Grave, I am from the Timothy, David, David, Hugh, Cornelia Jane line. My grandmother's mother was Cornelia. Do you want to share information?
