We're cousins!
Do I know you? Nettie Oakes was my great grandmother. Her daughter, Jeanie Leanell (Oakes) Shippee was my maternal grandmother (never met her). I spent many, many Sundays "up home" on the Oakes farm visiting "Uncliff" and "Aunt Ad" (my grand uncle and aunt). I have lots and lots of info to add to our family tree and connections to the Shippees born in Readsboro and buried in South Hill Cemetery.

RE: Justus Bangs
Carol, Thank you so much for your response~ I guess this would make us distant cousins, right? By some absolute serendipity, my father, who is in no way descended from the Bangs/Oaks line, with his second wife Jane, many years ago purchased the old Hammond Hill one-room schoolhouse in Brownsville VT (near Windsor) as a second home. The school had been remodeled in the early 1800's to become a wonderful little home. My father passed away in 2009, and my stepbrothers and I are now co-owners of the house, offering it for rental as a vacation cottage most of the year. I wonder if there is ANY chance this school was attended by the Bangs and Oaks ancestors on my mother's side~ what kind of co-incidence would THAT be??? I thought perhaps you might know..
Here's the house.

As I delve deeper into the history of our family tree, I find I am fascinated by the histories of our forbears in Massachusetts and Vermont. I look forward to continuing this ever-widening journey of discovery. Thank you again for your response.

RE: Justus Bangs
Thanks for the fast response, Carol.

It's so time consuming; I've pursued and then abandoned the effort several times~ but I remain absolutely fascinated by the family history. As more becomes available for it, I expect to continue the research. This trip with my Mom is just one of many steps in a long journey!

Ironically, my FATHER~ a whole different, Swedish line of ancestry~ and his second wife, to whom I am completely unrelated, many years ago bought the refurbished original one-room school in Windsor, Vermont as a second home. I now own it with my two step-brothers and we rent it as a vacation cottage. I'm seeing that many of the Bangs and Oakes ancestors stayed in that area; I wonder if any of them had anything to do with this school? Wouldn't THAT be a small world?
I'd love to have a history-adventure, based from there one day also.
Here's the cottage today

Thanks again~
I wish you all the best in your own research.

Justus Bangs
I am a direct descendant of Justus Bangs through the Bangs/Glynch line. I am seeking any information, photos and documents pertaining to our family history. I'm planning a trip to Wauconda this May (2014) with my mother~ Jean Hole Peterson, daughter of Lela Glynch Hole~ to walk the footsteps of our ancestors and visit some of our family's historical sites. Would be most grateful for any information that might help make this trip a successful and interesting one.
Thank you~
Wendy Peterson

Curious, are you related to the Phelps that you have monuments for? I am. Thanks for having them listed. TomK

RE: Stalker
Thanks for that info. (Am impressed that my husband actually remembered a name, lol, but he left New England 50 yrs. ago and just blocked it all out.) I'd like to leave a little Tisdale history for the next generation, but it's a tough one!
