Genealogy and History of
THOUGH it is not the purpose of this work to enter minutely into the history of the territory of which it treats, it still becomes necessary to invite the reader among the cobwebs of time, and to retrace with him some of the half-hidden paths that lead back adown the misty vale of centuries, to the days when the grand old Green Mountains towered above an unexplored wilderness, to the time when the majestic forests of the present proud State of Vermont echoed only the voices of nature, when its beauty-teeming lakes and charming streams reflected from their bosoms only the bark canoe of the wily Indian. Enroute we purpose to enquire into the causes that brought the great commonwealth into existence, and to briefly notice its progress from the first settlement of its territory by civilized people, to the time of its admission as a member of the Federal Union. One of its fourteen grand divisions we purpose to more particularly notice, viz.: Lamoille county. Here we shall endeavor to trace in outline the lives of a few of its hardy pioneers, enquire into its early proceedings, trace the erection of each one of the townships therein, and to hand down to future generations the name and occupation of each of their residents in 1883-1884.
