Vermont History and Genealogy

About Me

I have been researching my own Vermont History and Genealogy for over 25 years. The Names I have done the most research on in the Vermont area are as follows:

Bessette
Begins
Devoid
Vanderhoof
Isham

I have a lot of source material relating to the above, so if you, too, are researching those names, and have specific questions, drop me a line at 72 FLH @ twcny . rr . com (without the spaces) and I’ll try to help.

I will be adding a lot of my primary research here as time permits, so keep checking back.

  1. I wonder if the genealogy for President Chester Arthur is correct as I think his father’s surname was “Arthur” — not ‘MacArthur”. The actual marriage record for his parents has his signature as ‘William Arthur”/ I cab send you a copy if you would like it..

  2. Thank You for the oppotunity of using your knowledge. My interest lies in the Coolidge family I wish to know where I can borrow (cannot afford to buy!) Emma Dowling Coolidge’s The descendants of John and Mary Coolidge as I have reason to believe that I am related to the family via the John of Pres. Calvins grandfather X 7
    Thank you

  7. I am doing research on the early firearms manufacturing industry along Otter Creek (indcluding Champlain Arsenal) and am wondering if you have found any information of this subject. By the way, I live in a Ferrisburg house supposedly build ca 1842-3 with gold found in a crock on the property. Ever hear of such a story? I’ve enjoyed your work very much.

  11. I have a little early information on the Blaisdell and Standish families in Randolph and Montpelier which I am glad to share.

    I hope to locate a cemetery in “West Randolph” where one Moses Standish was buried in 1840.

    I know of an 1822 Standish/Blaisdell marriage in Montpelier which does not appear on the Town Clerk’s record for 1821-1830.

  13. Much of my Kelley family is buried at Park Lawn in Bennington, Vermont. Is Bennington part of this area of Rutland? They were early pioneers and had at least five generations born in Bennington. Do you know any of these names: Lorenzo (brothers and sisters: Beatrice, Veronica, Charles…) born to Edward Leo Kelley and Helena LaFlamme. I have more names further back. Just not sure if there is any more information to be gleaned and how much it would cost to get it. –Susan Kelley/Kossey (married name)

  14. I’ve been trying to find some information on John Warner b. 1615 England came on the “Increase” to America.
    His son John Warner who married Margaret Howard,
    His son Ebenezer Warner who married Martha Galpin.
    You are the only one who has the same children as I do.
    I received my line of Warner’s from the Ancestral Files at the Family History Center at the L.D.S.
    some years ago, before most of us had computers. It didn’t come with references. I am just getting around to researching this line. I was wondering where you got your information and if you’d would share it with me.
    Thanks

    • Two generations of Warner pedigree, previous to 1612, are given in Wm. Paver’s “County Visitations of Yorkshire.” [N.E. Hist. and Gen. Rep., Vol. XI, p. 269].6

  20. My great great grandfather, Samuel F Fuller came to Michigan from the Ft Ticongeroga, NY area (I think). His father, William, was born about 1765 and died before 1845. His mother, Martha Bliss, came to MI with him and died in 1860.
    Samuel was married to Sarah (Sally) Spicer but I cannot find any more detail on his father, William.

  23. What a fascinating blog. Thank you! Have you ever come across any mention of the family name of Batey/ Bettey? I’m researching the family line of Joseph and Susannah who migrated eventually from Vermont to Iowa and then Montana but had connections with Johnson and Cambridge (and possibly other places)

  25. Came by this site today and was wondering if you or anyone on here knows about War of 1812 Brigadier General Edmund Munger who was buried in Centerville Ohio ….I think he died in 1850 or 1851…. He settled in the Centerville area in 1799 with his brother, Revolutionary War veteran Jonathan Munger.Just wanted to get in touch with his descendants….I’m trying to trace a house he once owned.
    Thanks,

  27. Hi there, I think your blog might be having web browser compatibility issues.

    When I take a look att your blog in Safari, it looks fine
    however when opening in IE, it’s got some overlapping
    issues. I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Apart
    from that, great site!

  29. Is it possible that the family of John Dewey came originally from Antwerp (now Belgium) or Douai (now France). That is something that is mentionned in biographies of John Dewey but never proven by historic facts…?
