Dave Potter met me in the dusk when I parked my car in one of the ample parking spaces. And after I got settled in the room in the upper right of this photo, he offered me a piece of chocolate cake, homemade with a welcome glass of milk, before I retired to a hot shower.
Mary and Dave Potter, with their welcoming smiles and breakfast made to order with local maple syrup! And plenty of good coffee too.
After breakfast, Mary took me in her car to the Quinnipiac Cemetery just down the road, about a block and direct me to the gravestones of my 7th and 6th generation ancestors.
Here is the author, with the red stone grave marker of Gamaliel, B July 12, 1742 and died age 45, on the left, and Josiah's marker on the right. It was Gamaliel's son, Leonard Hamlet Cowles , who studied law at Yale, and moved to the new state of Ohio, to the area around Delaware, where his daughter Georgiana Cowles, married Lewis Glessner, my great grandfather on my mom's side of the family tree .
