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 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.
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.
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 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.
"I can see that Cora Spaulding Rock's sister married a Moore so her stone with the cenotaph of her husband, Joseph Rock, inscribed, probably are in the same lot but having the Moore stone pictured on their F.A.G. memorial can be confusing to the researcher. I think the Moore photo should be removed from both Cora and Joe but especially from his unless a sentence is put in the text indicating they are buried in the Moore lot. That is, if that is so."
The Moore photo stays. If a person with a different last name is in the same plot, I always put a photo of the main monument, regardless of what last name is on it. Just the way I (and others) handle it, otherwise I'd have to go back and delete a few thousand photos of similar situations. If people are really that confused, I'm happy to respond. ~Jen~
