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: Sarah Belle Burbank Denno
I found out why Edward (#128710534) is buried in Oak Ridge Cemetery. He and Sarah Belle had a daughter named Helen who died when she was 0 years old (perhaps stillborn?). Helen is buried in Oak Ridge. I sent edits for Helen, but the creator of the memorial,(SG)'s 'account is disabled' per the screen I got twice, so I added a note in the flower section and sent the edits for birth and death. Not sure what that means? I've never seen it before.
I also found out that Edward and "Belle" had a son named Estel S Denno who was born 3/29/1906 and married Bernadine White in Steuben County, Indiana in 1928. I couldn't find him or Bernadine in F.A.G. in either MI or IN.
Thank you for the information!
It's been a pleasure!

RE: Sarah Bell Burbank Denno
A brief look at Saginaw's obituary index and City of Saginaw Cemetery records (which are both online for Saginaw residents to access)shows no Edward F Denno. Each of the 3 children, plus Sarah, are buried in single graves as opposed to a cemetery family plot, so I'm thinking he's either 1) buried in a cemetery on the outskirts of Saginaw(perhaps with a newer wife?) which is not City of Saginaw owned, 2) he died before the late 1800's, so the Saginaw Obit Index doesn't list him, or 3)he moved away after his wife died.
I am briefly checking my email this morning before we leave town to go out of state for a few weeks, so I will follow up with the children and Sarah at the local library geneology dept. when I return. Hubby's waiting impatiently as I type. Thanks again for the info.!
Are you related? I am not. If you would like, I can transfer the memorials to your care. I will have access while we're traveling.
Sincerely,
Janet

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
