Hi, YES, Im still searching for these people.Have found alot of info& still adding. Gramp Nelson French was married to Lydia Styles-she passed,he was 48-he then married Viola Knight of chester vt.they lived in Wardsboro.Married Greenfield Mass.Her dad Moses H.Knight/Emmaline L Skinner. I aslso found a cousin-Laurie from BellowsFalls,vt. Also Steven Slade from my home town,bondville,vt. I go in different directions,as it gets tiresome ,so try work from different name.anyhow or way to gather info.Nice to locate info.I enjoy finding documents on anyone.


Sometime ago,I was on here & ran into Steven Slade from Bondville,vt. Hes my uncles son-Carroll Slade/Maude.
This is what I was asking of you Scott?If there was some sort of connection thru ur line of Slade??It mite be a slimne chance of connection??Id like to give it a shot??I dont have any names to search for. I found Jeremiah Styles/Malantha Moon ,lived in Stratton-my gram HattieBelle French parents.I found gramp Nelson French/Lydia French -Hattie parents.I also ahve Nelson parents.So Im still moving forward,searching in any area I can. I come back here to search also-just havent gotten any word as yet on anyone. I appreciate any help..SierraLee
