Sharon. Edwin Gowell's parents were William Gowell & Abigail Patton Ware. His parents William Gowell & Anna Trufant, then William Gowell & Rebbeca Cole b 7/5/1705 in Kittery, York, Maine, d 8/20/1807 in Bowdoin, ME.This Rebecca would be my 4th Great Grandmother. Is she your ancestor? Many of the Coles in the family are decendents of Walton E. Cole, Jr. who married my aunt. I don't have his ancestory except for his father Walten E. Cole, Sr., who married my great aunt, Emma Manley. Does any of this fit?.
