In Reply to: Re: benjamin Fernald of Yarmouth Barnstable Massachusetts by Bob Fernald of 299

Ah Heck! I'm reposting Abbie! I saw too many misalignment errors! Hopefully this will clarify who belongs to who!!

II 2. Abigail “Nabby” Fernald b. 8 Dec 1790 Yarmouth, MA d. after 1865
........m1 on 18 Nov 1811 Barnstable, MA to Abial J. Towne. He may be the same Abial J. Towne b. 1789 Thompson, CT d. 4 May 1855 Boston, MA son of Archelaus and Martha, and m(2) 21 Feb 1819 in Newington, MA to Alice Bates. Abigail possibly died or as I suspect remarried.
........1 Child of Abial Town and Abigail Fernald
........III 1. Leander Crowell Furnell Towne b. 16 Dec 1811 Yarmouth, d.1 Aug 1847 Barnstable
Abby must have been married to Abial for just a short time, Leander was born only one month after his parents marriage. So they may have wed to give their child legitimacy. He changed his name from Leander Crowell Furnell to Leander Crowell on April 9 1839. Abby also had a brother named Crowell Furnell and I suspect Leander was named for him. Some sources have Abigail married to William Crowell, but research submitters may have confused her, because of the Crowell name and from the census, with Abigail Crowell b. 1791 dau of Amos Crowell, who married William Crowell in 1816 Yarmouth, MA. Which is easy to do, seeing they share the same first name, have that loose Crowell connection and are about the same age and from the same area. Leander is buried at Universalist cemetery in Hyannis, MA
Leander Crowell m. on 12 Dec 1839 MA Brittania Patience Bearse b. 1822 d. 02 Apr 1900 New Bedford, MA. She was the daughter of Timothy Bearse and Annie Snow. She 2nd married to William Walley on 07 Jul 1848.
................2 Children of Leander Crowell and Brittania Patience Bearse
................IV.1. Sylvia E. Crowell b. 01 Aug 1840 Yarmouth, MA d. 29 May 1859 m. 17 Dec 1857 Reuben Dunbar b. 1836 d. 26 Jan 1869 New Bedford, MA Reuben was a bootmaker. He 2nd m. 13 Jan 1861 Sarah L. Gray.
.........................1 child of Reuben Dunbar and Sylvia Crowell
.........................V.1. Sylvia E. Dunbar 19 Apr 1859 New Bedford, MA d. 01 Sep 1859 New Bedford, MA
...............IV 2. Theodore P. Crowell b. 24 June 1843 Hyannis, MA d. 06 Feb 1931 New Bedford, MA
........................m1 on 14 Nov 1865 in New Bedford, MA Laura Flora Slocum b. 1846 Newport, RI d. 02 Jan 1867 dau. of Amasa Slocum and Mary Braman, and adopted dau of Joseph Howland and Frances Braman, (Mary’s sister ,daughters of Gardner Braman of RI.)
........................1 Child of Theodore P. Crowell and Laura Flora Slocum
........................V.1 Ella M. Crowell b. 1866 d. 09 Aug 1866 New Bedford, MA
....................... m2 05 Sep 1877 New Bedford, MA Emma Hilton b. 1855 dau. of Samuel Hilton and Elizabeth Brown
........................5 children of Theodore Crowell and Emma Hilton
........................V.1 Leander Crowell b. 04 Dec 1878 New Bedford, Bristol, MA
...............................m. 10 Apr 1901 New Bedford, MA Bertha L. Robbins b. 1879 Providence, RI dau of Moses Robbins and Lucy E. Baker
...............................1 Child of Leander Crowell and Bertha Robbins
...............................VI. 1 Maurice Theodore Crowell b. 22 Apr 1902 New Bedford, MA
........................................m1. 19 Jan 1929 East Troy WI Florence Ann Griffin b. 24 Oct 1904 E. Troy, WI d. 20 Apr 1953 Evanston, Ill dau of Wm Griffin and Mary Cory.
........................................m2 Lydia
........................................1 child of Maurice Crowell and Florence Griffin
........................................VII. 1 Phillip Lee Crowell b. 12 Aug 1929 Oshkosh, WI
.........................V.2 Edward T. Crowell b. 29 Nov 1880
...............................m. 12 Nov 1902 Fall River, MA. K. Mary Shea b. abt 1877 Ireland, dau of John Shea and Hannah Murphy of Ireland. Could not find them in 1910 -1930 unless he remarried by 1910, he was a bartender.
He may be Edward T. Crowell of Boston 1910-1930, married to Helen F of Ireland, no children
.........................V.3 Frank Crowell b. 29 Oct 1882 d. before 1900 census
.........................V.4 Elizabeth Brown Crowell b. 23 Apr 1884 New Bedford, still single in 1930

...............................VI.2 Theodore P. Crowell b. abt 1917

Abigail “Nabby” Fernald m2 16 May 1818 in Yarmouth, MA to Isaac Baxter b. 20 Aug 1788 son of Isaac Baxter and Lydia Linnell (The marriage record has Abigail Town, but I suspect this is Abigail Fernald who married Abial Towne, Abigail Baxter is living with her daughter Emily who happens to be married to Abigail Fernald’s former brother in law’s son, Timothy Robbins and appears to be about the right age, so I made the leap.)
