Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired American Baptist clergyman having served as pastor of First Baptist, Bristol VT, Assoc. Executive Minister of the VT Baptist State Convention, and pastor of First Baptist, St. Albans VT. I am retired from the U. S. Naval Reserve (Chaplain Corps). Educated at Forestdale Graded School (Brandon VT), Bristol High School-1952 (Bristol VT), Bethel College-1959 and Bethel Theological Seminary-1963 (St. Paul MN).

When I married my wife from Starksboro VT in 1955, I found she was related to most of the early settlers: Bidwell, Brooks, Brown, Clifford, Hanson, Hill, Mason, Smith, Stokes, and Thompson.

My mother was a Dean from Monkton VT so I have many early ancestors in that town: Dean, Follett, French, Smith, and Stilson.

My father's Burbank ancestors came from Chelsea, Sharon and Tunbridge VT and earlier from Millbury and Rowley MA with the many usual collateral lines.

RE: Hyde Cemetery
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly! Yes, hopefully the owners are nice & will let us go!
I don't know any Nye's back east, but my husband's 10th great uncle, Benjamin Nye, came to America in the 1600's and his house that is about an hour south of Boston is now a museum. So if they have a connection to him, we could be related. That's another stop on our trip this summer. :)

Hyde Cemetery
I am planning a trip back east & would like to go to the Hyde Cemetery in East Georgia, Franklin, Vermont- I have several relatives buried there. I saw that you had a message on Star's page that you are from the area & you mentioned a different cemetery in Georgia, Vermont. Hyde Cemetery is near Hope Cemetery there just a mile down the road. From trying to locate the cemetery on the map it looks like it might be on private land. Do you know if there is public access to this cemetery at all? Or if it is hard to find? Or do you know the area?
Thanks for any help!

Rev. Lucius Dickinson/St Johnsbury Ctr edits
Hi John,

Thank you very much for the info on Lucius. I was able to figure out a few of the other stones that were with him at the plot.
I have linked his wife Millicent (and her to her parents and brother Stephen). I have added photos as well.

Hi John,

Just wanted to let you know that I have added photos to William's page in case you would like to take a look. If these are in your family tree and would like a transfer just let me know. I am not related.

Thanks for the info!

RE: Tyler Burbank
hi John,
Like many others here on FindAGrave, I do not link my managed memorials to Burial Unknowns. I also don't add entries for those with unknown disposition.

Although FindAGrave is a genealogical resource, it is not a genealogical site. This is FindAGrave, not a memorial site for generations who have passed and we do not know where they are buried.

I used to link to Burial Unknowns and there were all sorts of issues. I find not linking to be the safest path. Thank you for understanding.

RE: FYI Lydia Burbank - Riverview - Groveland
By all means. I didn't mean to ask you to take it down, but you seem to have interest, so I thought I'd point out the stone.

Elbridge Burbank
I transferred Elbridge Burbank to you. I am not a relative. It was an old mausoleum and I added some names. The graves were ransacked many years ago and the mausoleum was torn down. What remains were left were burried in the cemetery adjoined to the mausoleum.

Tyler Burbank
Would you mind terribly taking my info out of the bio for Tyler? The sources I cited speak for themselves and I'm not looking for any acknowledgment. Thank you so much.
