bullet Dea. Israel DWINELL was born on 8 Oct 1785 in Croyden, New Hampshire. He died on 20 Feb 1874 in East Calais, Vermont. From some pages copied from a biography of Israel Edson Dwinell, son of Israel and Phila Gilman Dwinell: "His birth-place was Calais, Vermont. The part of the town known as East Calais was the home of the Dwinell family from the time when Israel Dwinell, then a young man, brought to the great house on the hill his Marshfield bride. This homestead is a typical New England house of early times. It is a large two-story building, with generous attic. The hardwood frame is covered with half inch boards, over which are clapboards, unpainted, and in these later years shrunken and blackened by sunshine and rain. Up through the center of the roof protrudes a great chimney, with its five flues. In each of the many windows are twenty-four lights of glass. The outer doors are reached over stone doorsteps. The round cathole near the bottom of the side door, the knocker on the front door, the treasures of the attic, the iron latches, the chimney cupboards, the brick oven and immense fire-place, the wainscotted walls in the 'East' and 'West Square Rooms,' and the generous buttery, - all have a charm to one unaccustomed to such old buildings. This great house and the hilly farm on which it stood were bought by Dr. Dwinell's father while yet unmarried. To this home he brought his bride. Here, together, they reared a large family, five of whom survive - all of whom have proved worthy of their faithful and honored parents. Of the ten children in the family, the subject of this memorial was the fourth. . . . . The father of Dr. Dwinell . . . lived to the advanced age of eighty-eight years. It was said of him at his funeral, 'He was one of a very few old men, whose bodies have not outlived their minds. He retained in a remarkable degree the strong mental powers which were his natural endowment. for him the winter of age was not a time of fruitlessness. When he felt that mortal disease was upon him, and realized that through suffering he must be born into the live of Heaven, he said, 'Pray that God's will - not mine - be done.' ' It was a state of mind that reappeared in yet more marked degree of sweetness and resignation in the closing days of his son, whose life these pages commemorate. Dr. Dwinell's mother, Phila (Gilman) Dwinell, was a woman of beautiful character and of superior intelligence. Like her husband, she was 'strong in the faith of the gospel.' At every remembrance of her, 'her children arise up and call her blessed.' To such an ancestry Israel Edson Dwinell did honor. The best they had to transmit he appropriated. The best that was in him, whether inherited or acquired he imparted to all around him." Parents: Archelaus DWINELL Jr. and Olive Hall.

He was married to Phila Gilman on 1 Apr 1813 in Marshfield, Vermont. Children were: Alcander DWINELL, Ira S. DWINELL, Solon DWINELL, Dr. Israel Edson DWINELL, Albert DWINELL, Melvin B. DWINELL, Levi Gilman DWINELL, Jane Phila DWINELL, Edgar DWINELL, Wait Byron DWINELL.

"Greensboro, May 19, 1833 - Dear Sister [Patty Dwinell], I received your letter requesting me to visit you which I should delight to do if I could. but my health is so poor I dare not engage to . I do not preach but once in a day, and that is more than I am well able to do. The doctor thinks he can help me if I do not over doo. It may be I can visit you in the course of the summer if I can concistantly I will. I am sorry to hear the church is so low. I hope it will soon revive. O, that you all male and female may feel as they did seven years ago this day; a day I shall never forget. Religion is as good now as then; how can we sleep when the command is work while the day lasts; the voice of God to us is what thou doest do quickly. The canker rash prevail hear in an unusual manner. Four children have died in one family in a few weeks. Give my love to all the dear brothers and sisters. Tell them tis high time to awake out of sleep's journey for me. My family at home are in health. My son Sanborn is verry sick. I fear he will not recover. I remain your friend and brother, Marvin Grow."

Given the conflict between the date of this letter (1833) and the birthdates of Marvin and Maria Dwinell (1828), the possibility must be entertained that this letter in not from Marvin Grow Dwinell to his biological sister Patty, but from a minister named Marvin Grow, who may have preached in Marshfield at one time, to his spiritual sister Patty. Marvin Grow Dwinell may have been named for this Marvin Grow.

bullet Melvin B. DWINELL was born on 9 Jul 1825 in East Calais, Vermont. He died on 28 Dec 1887 in Rome, Georgia. From Hemenway's Vermont History: "Fitted for college mostly at Montpelier Academy; entered the University of Vermont in 1845; graduated Aug. 1849; was principal of People's Academy, Morrisville, 2 years ; came to Georgia in the fall of 1851; taught in Hamilton, Ga., 1 year; taught 2 years in Macon Co., Ala.; Jan. 1, 1853 bought half in the Rome (Ga.) Courier; a year after, bought the other half; have published the Rome Courier continuously from Jan. 1, 1855, to this time (1881) except from May 18, 1864 to Sept. 1, 1865. May 18, 1864, the Federal troops took possesion of Rome, and I left. They used by material and stock on hand, and when they left, utterly destroyed everything in my office except one job-press, which they carried off. I was mustered into the Confederate army at Richmond, Va., Mar 28, 1861, as 2d lieut. for the war; was promoted to 1st lieut. in March, 1862; was in the first and second battle of Manassas; actually engaged two days of the seven in the fights around Richmond, from June 28 to July 25, 1862; was in the first battle of Fredericksburg and the Gettysburg, besides 20 or 30 smaller engagements and skirmishes. The only wound received was a gun-shot wound in the upper left arm at the battle of Gettysburg. From this wound I was disabled some 2 months. After I returned to my command, in Nov. 1863, I was elected one of the two representatives from my (Floyd) county to the State Legislature, which exempted me from military service, except that I served as adjutant, with the rank of captain, for a short time in the spring of 1864, under Gen. A. R. Wright, in command of State troops. After the close of the war, I returned to Rome, Ga., arriving here May 25, 1865, and found that my entire assets consisted of $22.50 in gold in my pocket, and the debris of a printing establishment, once worth $10,000, estimated at $300; but I went to work getting up from the ruins, and soon got type enough to print small circulars, hand-bills, etc., using a planer and mallet for lack of a press. I soon hired a small press, and Sept. 1, got out a small weekly paper. I was soon on my feet again, and have since done a fair business. In the summer of 1875, I went to California; visited on the trip, Salt Lake City, the Va. City gold and silver mines, the valley of Yosemite, etc. In 1876 I made a trip to the East, visiting London, Paris, Brussels, Venice Rome, Herculaneum, Pompeii; ascended Vesuvius; lit my cigar in the crater; saw Alexandria, Cairo, the Red Sea, Jerusalem, Damascus, etc. I have recently published a volume descriptive of my travels, entitled, 'Common Sense Views of Foreign Lands.'
