5 thoughts on “Descendants of Samuel Sturtevant”
Richard Sturtevant Gifford Everit (10) married in Barre, VT at the catholic church on 9 May 1964 Marianne Henriette Lamothe. She was born and raised 20 Oct 1937 in Barre, VT and died 5 Mar 2020 in a nursing home from heart issues in Folsom, CA at age 82 is buried in Websterville, VT. Her father Bernard Napoleon Lamothe (father David Lamothe, some of his family uses different spelling, from Leeds, Canada and mother Selina Fortier from Thetford Mines, Canada) was born 21 Aug 1903 in Guildhall, VT and died as a heart patient in hospital 14 Dec 1981 Berlin, VT at age 78 is buried in Websterville, VT. He loved doing projects around the house. He was a self employed shoemaker and city worker for Barre, VT who married in Barre, VT on 9 Jan 1933 Maria Blanche Richer (father Gendeon or Gedeon Richer from St. George of Windsor, Canada and mother Elodia Godbout from St. Camille, Canada.) Maria was born 7 Jan 1905 in St. George of Windsor, Canada and died 29 Mar 2000 at her assisted living apartment in Saranac Lake, NY at age 95 is buried in Websterville, VT. She came from St Camille, Canada to the United States by automobile on 29 June 1928. Her petition for Naturalization to the United States was sworn 1 Sept 1937. She was a teacher, homemaker and worked for the electric company in Barre, VT. Maria lived in Barre, VT for over 50 years. She loved playing the card game Skip Bo till the night before her death. Marianne grew up with one elder sister born Marie Theresa Jeanne Lamothe who became a catholic nun in New York and has no children. Marianne earned an accounting degree at Burdett College in Boston, MA and became a bookkeeper and homemaker. In 1967 the couple, with 2 kids already, settled and bought a house in Walnut Creek, CA where they lived for about 50 years. She was very dedicated to her catholic faith and mourned the loss of one miscarriage, before her 4th child was born with complications that would be life threatening if she ever gave birth again, so she never had the big family she wished for. Marianne loved traveling and made several trips by station wagon with the 4 kids across the United States to see our country and to keep in touch with the extended family in Masachusettes, Vermont and Canada, . Although California was a wonderful childhood, if there was one concern it was that the 4 children were very isolated, had no cousins, and never got to really know any family members.
Martha Lee Everit (11) married in Reno, NV 1994 to George Forrest __?__. He was born 25 Sept 1952 and died 19 Jan 2001. He was named after his biological father. His mother Shirley married second Lee Healer who adopted all of her children except the eldest daughter who opted out in the largest adoption to take place in Napa, California. Being left with hard feelings against the biological father, the family wanted to legally change the name of George to Mark but this proved to be too expensive and they used Mark as a nickname the rest of his life. I worked for his parents at a motel in Concord, California. He had blue eyes and knew how to turn on the charm. He had at least one daughter from previous marriages. He worked in heating and refrigeration. We settled in Carson City, NV in 1995 and I got a job right away at a now bankrupt department store called Gottschalks that I kept for 10 years. He did not bother to tell me he was a chronic alcoholic and drug addict and even if he did I probably would not have understood what it meant. Because of this I made sure not to get pregnant. I helped him enter 3 drug rehabilitation programs, but he fabricated entire stories about his life. I found out during a visit to the 3rd rehab. that he was telling these stories to the patients and psychiatrists who were trying to help him. He was never serious about getting help. Within several days of leaving the 3rd rehab. he picked up a beer and said “I can handle one beer.” I told him our marriage was over. In the fall of 1999 I moved a few blocks away and rented a room in the house of Almeda Allen. After a month he stopped helping me pay off the thousands of dollars of debt we built up sending him to rehab. and he disappeared from the city. A month later I got a call at my work from a storage facility in Texas who said they would sell our things if I did not pay the bill. I had to let everything go because it took me 5 years to pay off what we already owed. At the end of 2000 I got a call at my work from George who told me he was in a VA hospital dying of cirrhosis of the liver. When he left rehab the doctor said he was in good condition, so he basically drank himself to death in one year. Several years later I searched for a death certificate and found that he had his family mark that we were divorced when we never divorced legally.
