My family went to Madbury NH a couple of weeks ago and we looked at an old book of town manager's minutes and there were several Twombly's voted in as constables and surveyors of highways. We also saw William (b.1717)Twombly's house that used to stand next to his garrison that was torn down in the 1840's - a nice rambling colonial. In the Dover library there was nothing new but a little clue to our John...the librarian got to an Ancestry library website that was a census of 'north of Bangor' of 1850 and it had John and Hannah's family listed and John's place of birth as 'NH'. So now I'm wondering if he really is related to the Madbury Twomblys (Ralph, John, William, William, John...then our John????) The mystery continues.....!
