    3. Rick, state@vermont-genealogy.groups.io is an email address you post to the list. The change was necessary because there are subgroups (aka county lists) now online.  it used to be main@vermont-genealogy.groups.io 2nd link https://vermont-genealogy.groups.io/g/State is the site where you go to join or to browse.

    1. [VTRUT] REEVES - RUGGLES - GOULD Family Photographs
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" a group of three photographs belonging to the REEVES Family of Illinois. The first is a photograph of William Titsworth REEVES which was taken at the Pratt Studio in Aurora, IL sometime in the early 1900's with William likely in his 50's at the time it was taken. The second photograph is one of Theodosia REEVES taken at the same studio sometime in the 1890's with Theodosia likely in her 30's at the time. She is also identified as "Mother" on the back of the photograph. The third photograph is of Lydia WARE REEVES and her grandson Donald REEVES, and her daughter Lou REEVES. This photograph was also taken at the Pratt Studio sometime in the early 1900s. Notes on the back of the third photograph indicate that Lydia is "Grandma" and Lou is "Aunt" and that Donald was the son of Harry REEVES whose mother died in his childbirth. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding the family: William Titsworth REEVES was b. 29 Oct 1856 in Aurora, IL to parents Charles Henry REEVES (1830-1923) and Lydia Bishop TOMLINSON (1830-1911). William was one of 5 children born to this couple including, William Titsworth; Joseph Tomlinson; Louise; Charles Henry; and George Cottrell or Cattrell REEVES all born between 1855 and 1871. William married Theodosa Gould RUGGLES (1856-1973) and they had five children including, Helen; Allan or Allen Gould; Marjorie; Louisa; and George REEVES, all born between 1884 and 1895. William died 24 Oct 1938 in Oshkosh, WI. Theodosia Gould RUGGLES was b. 8 Feb 1856 in Essex, NY to parents George Fitch RUGGLES (1818-1893) and Louesa GOULD (1825-1908) who were married in Rutland, VT on 26 Apr 1855. Theodosia was their only child. Theodosia died 13 Sept 1946 in Oshkosh, WI and is buried with family in the Spring Lake Cemetery in Aurora, IL. Donald Howell REEVES was b. 2 Jan 1891 in Aurora, IL to parents Charles Henry REEVES (1868-1945) and Anna Louise HOWELL (1868-1893). Donald was their only child. Donald married Anna Stevens CHRISMAN (1882-1974) in West Chester, PA on 18 Sept 1916. The couple had two children, Ann Elizabeth REEVES (1917-2008) and Charles Chrisman REEVES (1919-2013). Donald died 12 Jan 1972 in Fort Myers, FL and is buried in the Fort Myers Memorial Gardens in Fort Myers. Louise Tomlinson REEVES was b. 15 Mar 1862 in Aurora, IL and died 19 Jul 1945 in Pasadena, CA and is buried with family in the Spring Lake Cemetery in Aurora, IL. Lydia died in 1911 and is buried in the Spring Lake Cemetery in Aurora, IL. Lydia TOMLINSON REEVES may be identified here as Lydia WARE in correctly since WARE was her Mother's married name having married Mr. WARE after her first husband Mr. TOMLINSON passed. I am hoping to locate someone from the family so that these wonderful old photographs can be returned to the care of family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

    1. [VTRUT] NELSON family in Brandon n other towns in Rutland Co (1800s)
    2. Rob Thomas
    3. Greetings fellow family history friends, I am looking for more information about the NELSON family in Rutland County (Brandon in early 1800s; then Hubbardton / East Hubbardton; and other towns). Here is some names of "Nelson" people that I have found for Brandon, VT ... Andrew NELSON, 65 yrs; died 19 Dec 1869.  Bur in Old Cem in Brandon, VT Andrew NELSON, age 24; parents- John & Laura NELSON; died 13 Sep 1850; bur in Old Cem in Brandon, VT Andrew NELSON, 75 yrs; died 27 Aug 1827; bur in Old Cem in Brandon, VT John NELSON, 65 yrs; died 11 Apr 1850; bur in Old Cem in Brandon, VT Jonas NELSON, 65 yrs; died 14 Jul 1843; bur in Temple Cem in Brandon; Vol 1 Births/Deaths p153 Josephine NELSON; 21 yrs, 2 mo; parents- John & Laura NELSON; died 13 Aug 1846; bur in Old Cem in Brandon, VT Laury NELSON; 46 yrs 5 mo; marr John NELSON; died 29 Sep 1858; bur !SOURCE for these entries... in "Old Cem in Brandon, VT"; book 11, p20 of Old town Rutland Records My specific line goes up through  Asa Wheeler Nelson (1815 in Brandon, VT - 1899 in Fair Haven, VT).  He was one of perhaps 8 kids of John Nelson and Laura (Laury) Wheeler. The "minor" siblings were listed in a will for Laura Wheeler's father (Asa Wheeler) in 1840 as grandchildren (and minors of the his deceased deceased daughter, Laura Wheeler Nelson) as Wheeler (my Asa Wheeler Nelson)Lois Anna Nelson, Edson Nelson, Josephine Nelson, Harrison Nelson, Andrew Nelson, Franklin Nelson, and Laura Nelson I would VERY much appreciate any feedback about the NELSON surname in Rutland County in the early to mid-1800s.Sincerely,Rob Thomas (rthomasma@yahoo.com)

    1. [VTRUT] LANDON - BRACE Family Autograph Album
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old autograph album which originally belonged to Mary LANDON of Vermont. The album includes entries from family and friends from about 1890 through 1900. Family entries include her Mother (Addie BRACE LANDON); her Sister Grace; her Aunt Helen RAND; her Mother-in-law; her Cousins; and her Sister-in-law. Family surnames include, RAND, WELCH, BRACE, HALL, VARNEY, and BASSETT. There are approximately 23 entries from friends as well as family. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding Mary and her family whose inscriptions appear in the album: Mary Edith LANDON was b. 1 Apr 1882 in Sudbury, VT to parents German LANDON (1841-1896) and Adaline Hannah "Addie" BRACE (1844-1918). Mary was one of three children born to this couple including siblings Grace E. LANDON (1874-1976) and Charles J. "Charlie" LANDON (1886-1887). Mary married William Henry WELCH (1877-1943) and the couple had 6 children including, James H.; Claude or Placid Landon; Ralph Richard; Delbert Charles; Esther Addel or Adel; and Raymond Harold or Howard WELCH, all born between 1901 and 1919. Mary died sometime after 1943. Mary's Mother was Adaline Hannah "Addie" BRACE b. 27 May 1844 in Peru, NY to parents James W. BRACE (1803-1899) and Eunice COOK (1808-1872). Addie was one of 5 children born to this couple including, Julia Ann; Addie; Lucy Jane; Helen; and Charles BRACE, all born between 1842 and 1851. Addie's father had four additional children with his previous wife including, Lafayete or Lafayette S.; Philip; Erskine H.; and William White BRACE, all born between 1832 and 1838. Addie married German LANDON and they had the three children listed above. Addie died 21 Oct 1918 in Brandon, VT. Mary's sister Grace E. LANDON married Earl Allen ST JOHN (1871-1963) in 1895 and she died 26 Mar 1976 in Fair Haven, VT and is buried in the Hillside Cemetery in Castleton, VT. Mary's aunt Helen M. BRACE was b. 12 Jan 1849 in Altona, NY to the same parents as her Mother Addie BRACE. Helen married Eli E. RAND and she died 19 Mar 1918 in Rockingham, VT. Mary's cousin Gertrude Estella RAND was b. 1883 and married Clarence Nathan EDDY (1883-1965) and she died 28 Aug 1965 in Winchester, MA and is buried in the Restland Cemetery in Bellows Falls, VT. Mary's cousin Eunice Sybil BASSETT was b. 9 Mar 1875 at Hubbardton, VT to parents Dwight BASSETT (1840-1909) and Lydia Ann "Mary" MANLEY (1842-1908). Eunice was one of 6children born to this couple including, Meltha; Miner J.; Myron E.; Eunice Sybil; Bertha Mae or May ; and Milo Judson BASSETT, all born between 1864 and 1879. Eunice was married twice, first to Alvah Alvin NICHOLS who she married on 29 Mar 1897 in Chittenden, VT and together they had three children, Iva Mae; Cara or Kara Irene; and Lydia Ann NICHOLS born between 1898 and 1903. Her first husband died in 1903. Eunice's second marriage was to Jeremiah M. "Jerry" FALLON or FALLOON whom she married on 14 Sept 1909 in Pittsford, VT and they had two children including, Gilbert Francis; and Julia Margaret FALLON born in 1910 and 1913. Eunice died 31 May 1940 in Rutland, VT and is buried in the Evergreen Cemetery in Pittsford, VT. Mary's cousin Lucy Ducinda VARNEY daughter of Henry E. VARNEY and Martha MANLEY married Balentine DUNCAN on 30 Jun 1898 in Hubbardton, VT. I am hoping to locate someone from Mary's family so that this wonderful old treasure can be returned to the care of her family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

    1. [VTRUT] New Data Base - 1797-1860 Marriage Records
    2. Cathy & Bill McGrath via
    3. May be of interest as 179 individuals identified their residence as being in Vermont. Marriage Notices Appearing in Troy Newspapers 1797 - 1860 An index to 6,177 marriage notices covering 12,354 names that were published in five different Troy, New York newspapers from 1797 to 1860 was created by staff at the Troy Public Library in 1938 through 1939. The Troy Irish Genealogy Society was allowed by the Troy Library to scan this book so these important records could be made available on-line for genealogy researchers. To see these records go to the TIGS website - www.troyirish.com - click on PROJECTS and then, under Marriage Records, click on MARRIAGE NOTICES APPEARING IN TROY NEWSPAPERS.The five different Troy newspapers mentioned in the introduction to the index were: Troy Budget Troy Gazette Troy Sentinel Troy Times (See Note) Troy Whig Note: There were no records for the Troy Times in the index but there were some records for the Troy Post. Under "RESOURCES" on the TIGS website, <http://www.troyirish.com> www.troyirish.com you will also find an informative article, "Newspapering in Rensselaer County", which identifies which of the above newspapers are available, on microfilm or hard copy, at the Troy Library. These historical records are extremely important to genealogy researchers as all of the records predate New York's 1880 law that required reporting of marriages. Outside of the marriage location itself, church, justice of the peace, etc., you will not find these records anywhere else. Most entries show the name of the bride and groom, the residence (city, town, village) for both, date of marriage, names of newspapers that reported the marriage along with the newspaper date, page and column number where you will find the notice in the appropriate newspaper. It is important to note that the residence for the bride and groom is not just Troy, but may cover all areas of New York State, other States and even foreign countries. While 5,225 of the names showed no indication of residence, those records where the residence was reported are of interest as they show: - 68 individuals in 11 foreign countries. - 984 individuals in 31 other states in 370 DIFFERENT cities, towns and villages in those states. - 6,055 New York State individuals in 446 DIFFERENT cities, towns and villages throughout New York State. The names of all these DIFFERENT cities, towns and villages along with the number of individuals from each of them, is also shown in this data base. Hopefully you will find some of your ancestors in this new data base or in the almost 350,000 Irish AND Non-Irish names listed in the various transcription projects on the TIGS website.

    1. Re: [VTRUT] Michael F Welch b. 1850/51 in Rutland
    2. Catherine Habes via
    3. Assuming you have found the correct Michael in your link to Family Search (and I am guessing after some preliminary checking that this is the correct Michael) then Michael's father appears to be Matthias/Matthew Welch and his grandparents appear to be Edward and Ann Welch. Edward and Ann WALSH are buried in Calvary Cemetery. Having a Welch/Walsh ancestor in the Rutland area myself (but not of your family), I know that the two names were often used interchangeably in Rutland records. Edward Walsh, who died February 21, 1873 at age 83, was from Crossmolina, County Mayo. I thought this might be useful place of origin information once you establish your Michael's lineage to Edward. The gravestone of Edward and Ann Walsh, with place of origin information, is pictured at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=61225933 You might also post a message to Sara Noonan on her thread at this link: http://boards.rootsweb.com/localities.northam.usa.states.vermont.counties.rutland/5134/mb.ashx and ask her for the image she has of Matthias Welch's naturalization record, image #dsc03797. You'll need to provide your email address for her to send the image to. This Matthias was from Mayo, born in 1816 and was naturalized in Rutland Count, Vermont. You may also want to ask Sara for an image of the naturalization record of Thomas Welch, image #dsc03353. This Thomas Welch was from Mayo, born in 1830, and naturalized in Rutland County, Vermont on November 1, 1856. The interesting thing is that Sara shows he initially filed for naturalization in Dane County, Wisconsin before being naturalized in Rutland County, Vermont. He might end up being the relative (an uncle?) who blazed the trail that your Michael followed to Wisconsin. Happy hunting!
