the gibbs sisters - hannah and polly

On a rare day off from work (June 13th), Patti and I took a trip to Camden, Maine, to search Mt. View Cemetery for the gravestones of Hannah (Gibbs) Mansfield and Mary aka Polly (Gibbs) Mansfield. They were daughters of my 4th-great-grandparents, Elisha & Silence (Harrington) Gibbs. Hannah and Mary were married in Camden to brothers, Thomas and Daniel Mansfield, sons of Daniel and Lydia (Newhall) Mansfield.
