Well,I have only a name.The story was ,when I was young that thru family talk -grapevine-my gram Slade -guess had a dauhter -she lived in Brattleboro retreat. I have no info ,Im trying different names to locate her.My sister said our mom-Peral slade-Cobb went to visit her with gram & Bertha screamed tore her dress & ran out of her room.
I have info on my aunts-grams children-no Bertha,gram dad/mom,were Nelson W French3/20/1863 Lydia E styles 1/1868 Stratton,Vt. also have ggrandparents. Ive been searching ino snags this one is very difficult.she had to been born 1920 at least.I dont know if shes was under grma slade or what name.There was Styles,French, Cobb, Benson.
The fued was that gram did not want my mom & dad to marry- dad was raised by Cora S Styles -mar- Lucius Benson.,dad s name was Morris then.I dont know if Bertha mite be anyone child , sister???They all came from Stratton,or windhall,Vt Jamaica too.There r many Bertha Ive forund but not rite one.she has connection to Hattie Belle French-Slade.I was told gram went out with a French guy or Styles.Being young never know.Too many stories.My sister was also told.Ive looked up another Legrand Eastman Herrick-his dau-was to have mar-my dad before mar-mom.

There is another sister or relative of grams -she as far as Ive ever heard was in Brattelboro Retreat-Bertha French. Her name is Hattie Belle Frecnh,Styles,slade -mite be mixed up some.Im not sure if she was mar-or what -why she has these names no clue.
