Hello, I am researching information on some of my ancestor's in Vermont. These are a few of the surnames:  Brown, House, Craw and  Bartram/Bartrum.

 Solomon Brown Sr was my 4th great grandfather His parents are one of my Dead Ends-  looking at other family trees they say either Moses Brown or Edmund Brown as his parents.  From family records he talked about a brother Nathaniel whose son George had a shop in Boston at Fanueil Hall and a brother William.  It was told that his relatives came from Boston and New Hampshire.

Solomon Brown was born 10 MAR 1780 in Hyde Park, Lamoille, Vermont and he passed away 13 FEB 1856 in Delton, Websters Prairie, Sauk,Wisconsin.  They arrived in Wisconsin in the mid 18oo's.

Solomon first married Sally House 25 March 1804 in West Fairlee, Lamoille, Vermont. That is who he had all his children with .

His second wife was Eunice Follett and they married 13 Feb 1842 in Bradford, Vermont, USA and had no children together. Eunice Folett Marriage Family history says that she was Welch and had dark hair and eyes.  She was born 05 April 1800 in Vermont and passed away 22 May 1878 in Delton, Sauk, Wi

John Bartram was born in CT and moved to VT. He was the son of David Bartram. His second wife was Hannah Craw. Some of his children used the last name of Bartram and some used Bartrum.

Does anyone live near Wells in Rutland Co? I am looking for a Will for Isaac B. Andrews who lived in Wells from at least 1780-1800. He disappears after the 1800 census. He was born about 1740. His oldest son, Isaac Jr., moved to Chittenden co, but he did not go with him.

Hi all, I am new to GenWise. I lived in Springfield, VT until I was 8yrs old. I am researching my father's family, surname Carlisle. I have back to a William Carlisle born in Scotland but no dates. If anyone out there has any info on Carlisle, Hall, Lawrence, or Goldsmith families in Springfield, VT I would like to exchange info with you.

Since leaving that comment, I have discovered that there are Hills in the Norwich area named after the Lovelands and the Bloods, which I thought was pretty neat. :-)

Hi everyone, I thought I'd repost my comment from last summer in case anyone new has joined and didn't see it:

Hi all, Some of my ancestors lived for a very long time in Vermont, primarily in the Norwich area of Windsor County. I have been told that the family farm in Norwich is still in the hands of a distant cousin, though I have never personally met them. I am researching the Loveland and Olds families of Norwich and their associated surnames, such as Hatch, Wheatley, and Blood. Most of these families moved up to Norwich from elsewhere in New England in the late 1700s. If anyone is researching some of the same families or in the same area of the state, I'd love to talk more with you. In addition to enjoying doing genealogy of my family line, I find the Norwich area's history quite interesting.

I'm looking for information on my ancestor Benjamin A. Lewis born ca. 1818 and wife Lucia, I have them in the 1860, 1870 & 1880 Claremont,Sullivan,NH censuses and have asked for a 1850 lookup but would be happy to know anything else. I found a record in the IGI of a son Willie Anderson born in Springfield, Windsor,VT 26 Feb 1857 so they must have moved to NH not long after that since they are there in 1860 and daughter Anna L. was born Sep 1861 probably Claremont.
I'm not sure if they had any other children. I think I have Lucia's maiden name here somewhere too, just not right here, as most of the family history was kept by my moms family and handed down to her and then me. It's just not all in my FTM as yet.
Thanks for any help you might offer
