Charles Henry Gowell was born either in July 1846 or 13 August 1844, at Danville, Maine, the son of William and Olive (Allen) Pulsifer.   He began work as a shoemaker and then was a farmer in Monmouth, Yarmouth and finally at Rumford Junction in Auburn.  In declining health in his final years, he turned to an occupation as salesman for the Lawrence Knitting Co.  mpany of Lawrence, Massachusetts.  He died in 1918.

Annie Moulton (Gowell) Pulsifer was born 16 September 1849 in Maine, the daughter of Reverend William and Prudence (Moulton) Gowell.  She died in 1933.
