F, b. 8 April 1923, d. 25 February 2015
     Cynthia Dudley Sewall was born on 8 April 1923 in Wakefield, Massachusetts.1,2 She was the daughter of William Sewall and Sarah Elizabeth Trask.3 Cynthia Dudley Sewall died on 25 February 2015 in Woodland Country Manor, Oxford, Ohio, at the age of 91

Cynthia Sewall Baker, 91, of Oxford, Ohio, died Feb. 25, 2015, at Woodland Country Manor.

Cynthia was born April 8, 1923, in Wakefield, Mass., to William and Sarah Trask Sewall. During her growing-up years she lived in Akron, Ohio, New York, N.Y., and finally in Hudson, Ohio, where she graduated from Hudson High School. She moved on to earn a BA degree from Lake Erie College for Women. She continued her studies in ceramics at the Cleveland Museum of Art and secretarial training in Cleveland, Ohio. Later, in the 1960s she completed a mail-order writing course at the Famous Writers School. She devoted her married life primarily to her family and volunteer church activities such as Sunday School teaching, Women’s Bible study leadership, Youth Group leadership with her husband, various church committees and boards, and church secretary with another lady (Marlene Roeper). She did have a temporary job in the 1960s as substitute teacher in the Loveland, Ohio, schools, and she held a clerk position for two and a half years with Nutone while John was in Seminary. She was also a real spark plug as a pastor’s wife during her husband’s pastoral career at the Palo Congregational Church in Aurora from 1980 to 1993, when he retired. John and Cynthia chose to retire in Palo, buying about five acres of land on Loon Lake about one-fourth miles north of the church and building a home there. They continued to live a happy retirement on the shore of beautiful Loon Lake in Palo (Aurora) until entering their 80s, when old age made it advisable to move closer to family in Oxford, Ohio. This move took place in December 2007. Her health continued to fail, leading to her entry in December 2012 into the Woodland Country Manor nursing home, located near Oxford, Ohio. She was still a resident there when she passed away.

She is survived by her husband and three children.

She was preceded in death by her parents; and her brother, John Ladd Sewall.4

He assumed responsibility for the church soon afterwards.2 He died on 21 April 1866 in Augusta, Maine, at the age of 57 When taken sick he was pursuing his labours as Bible Society agent, and so sudden was his attack that he was only able to reach his son's house, a few miles distant, there to find his death-bed. Suffering much from feeble health during the past winter, he seems to have had a premonition of his approaching departure. The following words are extracted from a letter he wrote the Managers of the Bible Society six weeks previous to his death: "I am waiting to see what the Lord is preparing for me - life or death - permanent disability of recovery."4,7

David Alexander Sewall1,2

M, b. 10 July 1825, d. 12 April 1906
     David Alexander Sewall was born on 10 July 1825 in Phippsburg, Sagadahoc, Maine.3 He was the son of Levi Sewall and Rebecca Alexander.1 David Alexander Sewall married Harriet Putnam Coburn, daughter of Alpheus A. Coburn, on 7 July 1861 in Crystal, Island Falls, Maine.4 David Alexander Sewall and Harriet Putnam Coburn appear on the census of 1900 at Island Falls, Maine, with two daughters Alice and Mary, both single, a niece Alice Brown and a boarder.5 David Alexander Sewall died on 12 April 1906 in Island Falls, Maine, at the age of 80.6,2

David A. Sewall of Island Falls died at his residence in that town on April 1, after an illness of several weeks. Mr. Sewall was born In Phippsburg, July 10, 1825, and went to Island Falls with his father in 1843, where he has resided ever since. He was prominent in business and political matters in his town and in the County of Aroostook. For many years he was well known as a lumberman, and no man was better acquainted with the waters of that section than was he. In the old days when many million feet of logs were driven down the West branch of the Mattawamkeag Lake by the means of the primitive "head-works," towing large booms, his services ware always in demand to take charge.
He was elected one of the county commissioners of Aroostook County in 1869, and served a full term. In those days it was not a very easy matter to traverse the length of that long county, which the laying out of roads compelled them to do. Much of the county he has tramped over while performing his official duty.
When the plantation of Island Falls was organised in 1858, he was elected the first assessor. He was four times re-elected to that position before the Incorporation of the town in 1872. Since the incorporation of the town he has been on the board of selectmen for fourteen years.
He was married to Miss Harriet P. Coburn, July , 1861, and they have four children living, one, George M., being a resident of Racine, Wisconsin, where he is foreman in the great farm machinery works. The other three children reside at the old home in Island Falls.
The deceased was a member of Island Falls lodge. No. 206. F. & A.M., having received a dimit from Katahdin lodge No. 98, of Patten, which he joined shortly after it was constituted. He had also been a member of Aroostook chapter, No. 42, for many years. He was always a strong Republican, and was formerly very active at all the conventions of his party. Bath Independent and Enterprise, April 25, 1906.
