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.

Matilda Wentworth
Hi John,
The text in Matilda's bio was regarding her husband Franklin Wentworth. The birth and death date was his info not hers. I can understand how it could be confusing when read. I have deleted the dates and left his name and their marriage info.

RE: Davidsin Co. Civil War Veteran Thomas Gould
Good evening. I am one of Tom's contributors, and I go with a list he gives me. Probably one of us "messed up", I guess that's not too serious. Thanks so much--either way you are appreciated.

Mary Lou Adsit
Hi John - thank you for your interest in the memorial for Mary Lou Adsit (169912472). Please note that Find A Grave does not permit posting scanned obituaries to memorials, as explained in the "Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?" section of the Help with Find A Grave rules. Unfortunately, that means the photo needs to be deleted. Thanks - Deb

Kay Meredith Hathaway Thomas # 163974150
She died in Portland, Maine. According to the family she was cremated and her ashes were placed in the cemetery where her parents were buried. That would be Fort Ethan Allen Cemetery - Colchester, Chittenden County, Vermont. Her husband was my husband's first cousin. And his ashes were scattered at sea. Thank you so very much for making this memorial.
