Hiram Charlton took on the publication of the Genealogical and Family History of the State of Vermont for Lewis Publishing. In it, he enlisted the assistance of living residents of the state in providing biographical and genealogical details about their family, and then he published all 1104 family histories in two distinct volumes.
Robert Dunshee came from New Hampshire in 1787. He first located in the southern part of the town, but soon after removed to a part of the late Morgan estate, on the flats, where he erected a two-story house. Here he carried on the business of a saddler and harness-maker several years, then sold his house to Lewis Miller and removed to the mountain road, near the “Little Notch.” At the organization of the town he was chosen one of its selectmen. He resided here until his death, of cancer, at an advanced age.
Dunshee, Charles C., Bristol, was born on November 20, 1826, in the village of Bristol, Vt. He was a son of William and Almeda (Turner) Dunshee. He was married on March 29, 1862, to Mrs. Martha Barnes, a widow of Mr. Barnes, of Ferrisburgh, Vt. They have had one daughter born to them — Hattie, born on February 15, 1866. The homestead farm now consists of about eighty-five acres.
