Nancy - Do you mind if a use your photos on my tree at Ingrid Katrina Johannesdotter was my 3rd cousin 3x removed. I've been tracing her family from Sweden and the pictures you have here are great!

RE: Nowell
I am sooo sorry but after doing another sweep I did find Edgar's headstone and have added it to his memorial. I don't know how I missed it the first time through but obviously wasn't careful in my search. He is located in the very corner of his lot almost looking like he belongs to another family.
I have some other photos but will send them by email so that you will have them.
Again, my apologies!

RE: Stow Genealogy
I don't know the source for John -- my recollection is that Evelyn read every old newspaper from Whitehall she could find, and devoured obits. Unfortunately, I don't know what has happened to Evelyn's work. As I recall, she had one child who was not interested, so it may be long gone. I would love to join you in your Whitehall search --keep in touch as Whitehall is also one of my genealogical holy grails. There is data there, but so much harder to access than just over the VT border. Evelyn was my "in" there; she has been gone more than a decade. Of course there are many records in Fort Ann for Washington Co, and I don't think I know when Simeon deeded in. Not that this may mean anything, but Susanna Stow Osgood had a grandchild in the Whitehall area named Chauncey. It is the only time in my database of over 10000 relatives that that name appears.

RE: Prudence Dewolf Stowe
You may be right in your suppositions, I don't know. My resource was a distant cousin of my fathers, Evelyn Toben LeMay Sherwood, who owned the Susanna Stowe Bible, and who worked countless volunteer hours in Whitehall Historical Society. Sadly Evelyn is deceased, and her family history may now be lost, but she had combed through hundreds of local papers and photocopied anything about our family. Some of it she shared with me. The good news is that she had the DAR copy the bible, and it is in one of their compilations of bible records you can get at any good genealogical library. It may have been done in the 50s or 60s, when Evelyn was young. It may be under Washignton CO NY, or the name of her DAR chapter, which I don't know. This is what I have for John Stowe: B in Whitehall May 16, 1775, died 4 Dec 1843 Eaton IN. This is detailed enough that you may be able to go farther in Indiana. Despite that this says he was born in Whitehall NY, I think it is probable he was really b. before they left CT, since Simeon served in CT. Often people think they were born in the place they remembered growing up, when they actually came tthere as children. Good luck, hope this helps in your quest.

RE: Stowe Graves
You're welcome. After I cut away all the overgrowth from on top of the marker and brushed away the dirt, I smiled when I read that statement on it. It was really cool. They are resting in a beautiful spot. And I know what you mean. I still miss my grandparents a lot!!
