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.

Thank you very much for the information on Lucy. Would you happen to know anything else about her husband, H.B. Biddle??

Thanks

John Bolton
John Bolton is not on the cemetery list and I believe those are Adah's dates. Unknown where he is buried.

The reason I was alerted to a discrepancy was the birth dates. At first I looked to see if they were twins.
Brother Lawrence 27739310 7 DOB Feb 1835
Stephen DOB Apr. 19, 1835 on tombstone.
I don't see how they can be brothers unless there were two different mothers pregnant at the same time.

RE: Steven J. Swinyer, F.A.G.#39856341
The site reads:
Swinyer
Stephen J., 70 years old, a resident of Danville, Ill., is a lawyer and circuit judge. He enlisted in the Seventeenth Illinois, and was supposed to have been mortally wounded at the battle of Shiloh, or Pittsburg Landing. On recovery he enlisted in the One Hundred and Seventeenth Illinois, and was again wounded during Sherman's march to the sea.

http://vermontcivilwar.org/get.php?input=50526

This does not agree with what I have found:
1870 Campton Kane IL
Stephey Swinger (Swinyer) farmer b. VT 1839

1880 Hampshire Kane, IL
Stephen Swinyer no occupation b. VT abt 1837 VT

birthdate on tombstone April 19, 1835

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.

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.
