Today we’ve added 2 new sketches to Early Vermont Settlers, 1700-1784. The two new sketches feature Isaac McCune who married Lydia Chandler and William McCune, Isaac’s father who married Elizabeth Whitney. Both families lived in Brattleboro.

We’ve also updated two existing sketches:
Butterfield, Benjamin (Brattleboro)
Willard, Nathan (Fort Dummer)

With this study project, Scott Andrew Bartley researches heads of families who lived in Vermont prior to the Revolutionary War.  These sketches illustrate major players on political and religious fronts, uncover the migration patterns for this period in the region, and identify all those just looking to better their lives on the new frontier.  This project is proceeding in two series, settlers to 1771 and 1772-1784.  The work so far has been geographical, focusing on Windsor and Windham Counties.
