Abigail Goodwin Twycross was born Feb. 22, 1805, as recorded in the Dresden, Maine, town records. She is the daughter of Stephen Twycross and Lydia Johnson, who were first cousins. Their mothers, Lydia Goodwin Twycross and Rebecca Goodwin Johnson, were both daughters of Major Samuel Goodwin. She never married and passed away July 29, 1895, from inflammation or “meningis” of the brain. She is buried in the Court House Cemetery.
There is a transcription of the Dresden town records prepared by Georgianna Hewins Lilly which records Abigail’s death as being in 1832. That gave me no end of trouble at one point until I realized I had this photo of Abigail’s headstone sitting in my files which led me to her death certificate, which can be accessed through the link below.
