Bio and Links
I live in Maine, but all of my family was born in PA. My father's family of German origin settled the Conowago area of PA near Hanover, arriving in the early 1700s. My mother's family, mostly German with some Irish too, arrived a little later in the Philadelphia area.

I really enjoy connecting with distant family and others who are interested because of geographical location. I'm hoping to share and learn about all the information I can.

I love genealogy, primary source material and grave yards, in particular.

When I retire in five years, I want to spend my time wandering around Maine, checking out the cemeteries.

Gowen Family Burial Ground
Just out of curiosity, were there other inscriptions visible in the Winslow Burial Ground? There are a number of memorials in that cemetery that have no individual pictures that I would like very much to see.

You're welcome, Kit. I edited the GPS coordinates also

RE: Myrtle Little
You just need to edit the burial info on her existing memorial which places her in Mount Olivet to reflect that she's in Saint Joseph's Catholic Cemetery in Hanover, York County, PA.
Then you can add all of the other information I sent.
Of course this is all depending upon whether or not you think the details I sent are correct.

RE: Geo. Flick
Hi, I know this from my research. My great aunt knew the two sons of Elizabeth and John, the brothers to the deceased infant. Thomas Longstaff was my great, great grandfather, making Elizabeth my GGG Grandmother. We knew they passed through Boston on their way to Philadelphia, so I traced them to this cemetery. John and Elizabeth lived at 187 Tremont St. in Roxbury, just before Boston annexed Roxbury. After Elizabeth's death, John moved the family to Philadelphia.
