Herrington BAKER, Halifax, VT, OCD

Started a Time Line document for Harrington/Herrington BAKER (1756-1833).

Sent a query to the Town of Halifax, VT Historical Publications committee who are working on a Town of Halifax History book that is scheduled for release this winter. Asked if any BAKER information is in it and if they have anyone that would be willing to do local research for a fee.

In contact with Loretta Bates at the Washington County Historian’s Office. Turns out she is descended from these BAKERs also.

Made new labels for the “Families of the Old Cambridge District” Family Group Sheet books. It is kind of funny how this little project started about twenty five years ago. I had several ancestors that had lived in the Town of White Creek so I started working on their neighbors. Once I really got going I realized that in order to do it right I should record everything I could find on the immediate surrounding area and the logical target would be the south east corner of Washington County, and it’s immediate surrounding towns, of course.

Corresponded with Ken Hoxie on his wife's lines of descent from Seth CHASE's son Jonathan. He is also related through the WING family.
