Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in Winchester, VA - lived outside of Romney, WV for a few short years - in Delaware now. Picked up on family genealogy where my mother left off after her passing in 1988. Also have a deep interest in the Civil War and soldier burials - primarily Hampshire County, WV and surrounding areas in VA and MD.

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Hi Dan -

Just stopping by to say hi after looking at the graves and memorials you've posted on Find A Grave. I'm related to the Cowgill's through James William Cowgill & Electa Raigner.

I just looked. Ellen came over with William Penn 1682, the Ralph her son, came later on friends adventure, so we are related.

Yes, I am a descendant of Ellen Cowgill from England through her son Ralph, Issac, George. My grandmother was the last direct surname Cogill (our spelling) directly to me. I found an Orphaned Cowgill on Wikitree, and was hoping to find the family.

RE: Bethel Cemetery
Dear Dan
Thanks for your response. I visited lovely Chesapeake City, November last and found most of what I was looking for and a few surprises. Bethel Cemetery was easy to search and located many of my ancestors. Along with your postings I knew what I was looking for. Having stayed at Dr Smithers B&B even found the Barwick house on Bohemia Ave. Your input here on F.A.G. was a big help Thank You for your contribution to my research. Yours truly Robert Barwick

Hi Dan.
I also descend through Philip's son, Benjamin Markwood Haines, then through his daughter Etta Victoria Haines who married Robert Beauregard Nelson. You are welcome to see what I have in my tree. It is located on titled Tammy Abe's Roots and Branches. If there is another way to share, please let me know. Any information you have would be welcome, also if you find mistakes I would like to know.

Thank you,

Tammy Abe Harbaugh
