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.

Anna White
Hi John,
Thanks for catching another of my goofs. I have her in file as Anna, all records are Anna and her grave stone is Anna. No idea where Hannah came from. I do have the other marriage to WW White June 27 1938.

Thank you for taking the time and effort to find the grave and film it.

Thanks John,
I had seen that someone had just added him and his wife to Briggs Hill Cemetery but there are no markers found and they are not on the cemetery list. I think someone picked a place out of the air to bury them. I had wondered before if I should enter them. Maybe I will try the guy that made the site for them and see what kind of info he has.

Good morning John,
All I had to go on was his marriage record. As you found it seems that the whole family was not sure where they came from. I would think the marriage is correct as he would of given that information but of course I know that is not always correct. Do you have something showing Ohio?

You were right again. Death record was hard to read and I made a wrong guess. If I could do math the 1883 worked.

Thanks John,
Maybe a typo or just operator failure.
I have corrected the dates and added pictures. Do you know who her mother was? She was in census and is buried with Mary Forman (Ferman-Furman)

Thanks John, I usually enter their birth record over what the death record is so now I have him as born 6/15/1870 in Starksboro per his birth record. From years of doing this I learn that death records are quite often wrong.

Lucinda Small Needham
HI John

You will have to send a message again to Alan Lathrop as he maintains that memorial, he is the one whom linked this Lucinda to Harley Sayles and added the maiden name of Small.

I can not unlink them.. Alan will have to.. That memorial in question is: 45545417
