Rachel's Wish List

The women on this list were buried in the Old East Parish Cemetery in Westminster, Windham Co., VT. They are all women whose maiden names are missing from the Westminster records.  There is a date given for the approximate year they were married, using the age 20 as a base.  Some names have been found that could be them, but documentation remains inconclusive. 

I am trying to identify these women -- with their MAIDEN NAMES and of course marriage date and place, parents and birth, etc. If you can identify any of them, please contact me.

Since first posting this to the site, many have been identified.  There are still a few left.  Any ideas?  Thanks for all your help.
