Thanks to a friend I have read postings on the Flewelling family. A posting by Thomas A. Murphy (October 30, 2001) agrees with the limited history I know about my Flewelling family.
My family bible and a few obituaries are all I have to go on. The earliest births, in 1885. Looks like the family tomb is in St. John New Brunswick at Cedar Hill Cemetery.
