Toulon couple to present Feb. genealogy program

Steward Family pioneers in New England

In the summer of 2017 Gary and Karen Steward drove to New Hampshire and Maine to learn more about the Steward and Gleason families. Among the places they visited were Keane and Dublin, New Hampshire, and Skowhegan, Maine.

Their trip resulted in the discovery of so much fruitful information that they are still enthusiastic about their trip. They serendipitously ran into very cooperative people who helped them find the information they were looking for. These included a knowledgeable cemetery sexton and a very obliging librarian who helped them copy from an extensive Steward family history. Among other things, Gary and Karen uncovered information on the first Steward to come to America and details about a Gleason who fought in the Revolutionary War.

The public is invited to attend this program on Saturday, February 24 at 1:30 p.m. at Toulon United Methodist Church. Light refreshments will be served.
