From the Memoirs of Lois Twichell, daughter or Royal Twichell, who was the son of Lemuel, who was the son of Enos (Eneas) and from there..... Seth. This information can not be considered factual but I thought I would put it out for everyone to see.Possibly, someone can make something of it.No sense in contacting me as I have no further info. on this subject.
Here are Lois Twichells exact words as written in her memoirs from an incident that occured in the Spring of 1854 In St. Anthony, Minnesota.(They moved from New York) It has to do with her father looking for a Stonemason to build the foundation to his new house.
""Father had the stone drawn, to stone up the cellar which was a good one, the full size of the house, but he could not find a stone mason to do the work, but one day he raced home from town with a stranger whom he had met that day. This stranger had just arrived in the country. Father found he was of the same name as himself, and that he was a stonemason, so father secured him at once to lay up the stonewalls. He was a good workman and the walls were well built. He was a distant relative of father’s and bore the same name, but always went by the name of Tinker Twitchell, though his right name was Moses Twitchell. He said the Twitchells were of English origin. Two brothers by the names of Moses and Aaron came over from England together. Moses settled in Main, and Aaron settled in Massachusetts. He was descended from Moses Twitchell and father descended from Aaron Twitchell. For some reason my father’s father moved to New York. My father’s ancestors dropped the middle T in the name and spelled Twichell while the other branch of the family continued to spell it Twitchell, though by others it was frequently spelled with a T. "" (This information is unconfirmedREB)
I know there are a million theorys to this, but I just wanted to share this one with you all.
