Very interesting website.  Found some useful information.  I think more should be said about Kurn Hattin.  I grew up close to there and knew some of the girls at that time.  Sometimes it is more painful to hide the truth than to let it out.

As author of this website, it has come to my attention that there have been some people offended by the use of this guest book as a forum for issues regarding the Kurn Hattin home.  I have had to make a decision on this and it has not been easy.  I would like to request that from now on this questbook not be used to discuss personal experiences, good or bad, unless they deal directly with historical or genealogical research.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Thank for creating a place to mingle with others with Windham County roots. I have “hit the wall”; researching my NICHOLS line. Looking for information about Reuben NICHOLS (ca 1770-1850) and his ancestors and descendents. It's my understanding that he was the son of James NICHOLS and Anna FIELD, and was married Sally HOLBROOK.

Kurn Hattin is part of your history, like it or not.  Why does that offend people?  Truth is reality.

Caught your site while surfing for anscestors who settled in Lynn, Massachusetts, 1635 from England, and moved up through Vermont and New Hampshire, and settled in Stanstead County, Quebec, Canada in 1807.


Great Site.

I am researching the family of DICKINSON, especially Charles S. Dickinson, who is buried with some of his family, in the Old Saxtons River Cemetery, d. 1885. I believe he was the owner at one time of the Saxtons River Inn. I have exhausted all avenues of research that I can

find and am desperate to find that branch of my family.

New to computers; hooked on genealogy.  My maternal great grandfather was Albert J. KEITH, born in 1843, Pavilion, Genesee Co.New Your.  In every census, he listed his parents as being born in VT.  When he was 7 yrs, 10 months old, he was living with the LaDuce family in New York which makes me think his parents died due to a tragedy.  Anyone have information on the Keiths in Vermont?  I would love to get over this brick wall and on to the

genealogy search of the KEITH family.  Albert J. was in Civil War, married Phebe A. Tisdel in 1865 in Little Valley, New York.  Do you know of Clarence Keith who married a LaDuce girl?  There is a John Keith burried in the KEITH family plot along with his 2 wives in Little Valley Rural Cemetery.  Thanks.
