|Bio and Links|
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.

|LadyGoshen||RE: Tyler Burbank|
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.
|Jack Parker||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.
|Jack Parker||FYI Lydia Burbank - Riverview - Groveland|
Her stone is still legible. I've aded photos.
|Diane Schoppe McCue||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.
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.
Thank you for your update to Betsey Moore. I have updated her biography to include the parentage as well as the children I found documented in vital records.
I saw your Tyler Burbank memorial and I'm unclear... you write: "What the circumstances were or where he is buried is unknown" and yet you placed him in Howe Hill Cemetery. The placement is supposition.
You may already know the following, but I'm including it for completeness:
- Tyler Burbank is attributed to serving in Commodore Stephen Decatur's squadron during the Algerian War (Second Barbary War) in 1815 (in "History of Windsor County, Vermont" edited by Lewis Cass Aldrich, Frank R. Holmes)
- fold3 has him as a Seaman with the US Navy, Com William Bainbridge in 1815, warrant number 55-160-7035
- Tyler Burbank was married to Sarah in Sharon on 18 Mar 1818 by Samuel Bascom. The record actually reads Tyter and her last name is spelled Faile.
- 1850 census also lists a Lyman Burbank, aged 21 (born ~1828)
He may have received a land bounty/grant from his service.
