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.

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

Thank you John for the info. Funny I did not catch that as they are buried in the same plot.

RE: Photo possibility for Holy Cross Cem., Franklin NH
Hi John

Unfortunately I live four hours from the Holy Cross Cemetery and have no current plans to be in the Franklin area. I took most of my photos about three years ago.

Thank you John for the correction. I did visit the mausoleum and check the dates. Her birth date is in stone vs the death record that says 53.

Re: Richard Andrus
Hi John...I do not manage his daughter's memorial.. You will have to contact the person whom has Lucy's memorial in order to add parent links....


Your message below:

Their suggestion:
Barb, Richard was one of my Chelsea VT ancestors and I would like to see him connected to his daughter, Lucy, who m. Joshua Folsom. Her F.A.G. memorial out in Allegan MI is 47319613.

Thank you,

Thanks John but I can not like down to children. The one that made the child's site had to link the parents.

George Hill
Thank you John. Not sure how I did that but think I failed in the math. I did have July 4 1939 also.
