In 1790 Census for Strafford, Orange County, Vermont, it was VERY likely THIS James Pennock who was listed as 1 male over 16 and one female in the house.

There is an odd timeline with the James Sr. and James Jr., in that it APPEARS from the research I've seen, that James Jr. died well before his father. With 'Jr.' dying in 1777, and 'Sr.' in 1808. This COULD be in error, but will leave as is, until proven one way or the other. He was born circa 1714 at on ship from England to 'New World'. He was born in 1714 at Hebron, Connecticut, USA. He was the son of Samuel Pennock and Mary Wilson. James Pennock married Thankful Boardman, daughter of Samuel (Bordman) Boardman and Mehitable Cadwell, on 1 March 1738 at Middletown, Connecticut, USA. James Pennock died on 2 November 1808 at Strafford, Orange County, Vermont, USA.

b. circa 1720, d. 2 January 1797 or June 1797

     Unrecognized GEDCOM data: Unknown GEDCOM tag: _MILT a private in J. Alger's Company of Vermont Militia (Rev. War). William (Briscoe\Briscow) Brisco MY guess/theory/suspicion.... That THIS William Brisco(e) was s/o William Briscoe and Sarah Fare, who were married 18-May-1717 at Boston, MA. Though, was this Sarah Fare same as married Matthew Vibert, 28-Nov-1705, also in Boston?

Spouse1: William Briscoe
Comments: Int. reads [Briscow]
Spouse2: Sarah Fare
Married By: Rev. Mr. Sam. Miles Presbytn
Date: 18 May 1717


See also 'Brisco', in some sources. Some believe William was born in or around Woburn, Massachusetts.

Amongst the first settlers of Strafford, Vermont, as were John West and his son, Daniel, James Pennock, William Chamberlin (and his sons, Amasa, Elias, Isaac and Asahel), as well as Samuel and Levi Root (possible connections to Dinah)

Most likely descended from the Briscoes of Boston, Massachusetts. The 1790 Census shows his household as 1 male over 16 (Wm.), 1 Female (likely Dinah) The Briscoe line likely descends from John Briscoe (b. about 1590) who settled first in Maryland, came from England on the 'Ark' and 'Dove' expeditions about 1634 and married Elizabeth Du Bois. This line obviously needs some work to make a valid connection. Surely William, or a son of the same name, was the one mentioned as one of the first selectman of Strafford, Orange Co, VT, chosen in March of 1778. The 'roots' of the beginnings of the town of Strafford date back to meetings held in the 1760s in Hebron, Connecticut, which may be where many of the first settlers were from.

Based on Vermont vital records, his birthyear MAY have been 1721, as he died in 1797 at age '76.' Though HIS headstone in the Kibling Cemetery was mostly unreadable, the headstone of Dinah Brisco(e) was quite readable, though found not next to her husband, but, amongst members of the Root family. So, it is possible she was a Root by birth. Nothing indicating she was the wife of a Root, later in life. There IS record of a William Briscoe marrying a Dinah Cutting (b. 21-Jun-1718 in Sudbury, Massachusetts), with a marriage year of 1740, but no further information. This could have easily been another William, as the Briscoes were quite populous in that area.

One point of concern. Dinah's, or 'Dynah's' marker in the Kibling Cemetery has her death on the 26th of some unreadable month, in 1797, age 76. That is MOST coincidental with the vital statistics on William. Not to say it could NOT be, but, the chances of both of them being born the same year and dying the same year are not too good. Just something to bear in mind. It surely makes the 1719 birth year more believable and.. perhaps, when records are found, it may be 1721 was the year he was baptized or christened?

Also, according to a transcription of the cemetery, done many years ago, there are comments about MANY of the stones being unreadable at that time. This transcription seems to indicate William may have actually been buried next to Dinah, at least, originally. He FROM VERMONT TRIP APR-1993, V.R. RESEARCH INDICATES HE DIED IN 1797 AT AGE 76,
AND THIS WOULD SHIFT HIS BIRTH YEAR FROM 1719 TO 1721, ALSO, HIS HEADSTONE IN
THE KIBLING CEMETERY IS UNREADABLE. HIS WIFE DINAH, HOWEVER, WAS QUITE READ-
ABLE, AND FOUND, NOT NEXT TO HER HUSBAND, BUT AMONG MEMBERS OF THE ROOT FAMILY
, SO IT IS POSSIBLE THAT SHE WAS A ROOT, BY BIRTH. He was buried at Kibling Cemetery, Strafford, Vermont, USA. He was born circa 1720 at Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA. Unrecognized GEDCOM data: Unknown GEDCOM tag: on 21 June 1740 at Framingham, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA. He married Dinah Cutting, daughter of James Cutting and Mary Nobles, on 22 October 1740 at Framingham, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA. William (Briscoe\Briscow) Brisco died on 2 January 1797 or June 1797 at Strafford, Orange County, Vermont, USA. He died on 23 June 1797 at Strafford, Orange County, Vermont, USA.

Dinah Cutting (F)
b. 21 June 1718, d. 26 August 1797
Pop-up Pedigree

     Dinah Cutting Believe the correct Dinah IS one who married OUR William Brisco, and is now listed as seen, as daughter of James Cutting and Mary Nobles, mostly based on informatino provided by Karen Landry. ANOTHER Dinah Cutting married in 1750s to a Micah Pratt, but that one was born 1731, and already 'fit' into another Cutting family. There is no evidence contrary to Dinah Cutting being the correct Dinah to marry William Brisco, father of both Molly and Hannah. Only some minimal date deviations, surely within acceptable differences (one to two years). Surely, Dinah AND William were born somewhere around 1720, give or take a year or two. The accuracy with which birth years were recorded, let alone, remembered in those times is hardly considered 'pinpoint.'

Also seen as Dynah.The DAR records indicate Dinah was born in/around 1721 and died in 1797, which checks out with marker in Kibling Cemetery. Her stone is found amongst the stones of members of the Root family, hence the initial thoughts that she might have been born a Root, herself. However, further research indicates she was probably NOT a Root, but that her daughter, Hannah, married Levi Root (the early settler of Strafford, VT), and that is why she was buried in their 'midst' at Kibling Cemetery. Indications are that some of the stones in that cemetery may not be in their original positions, so both she AND William may have once been nearer one another, though LIKELY still in the Root family group.

It's interesting to note the way the 1797 date on her headstone is 'wrapped' to the following line. One would assume the quality of work on headstones, at that time, is reflected in this odd 'look'.

As is often the case, there are now some reasons to believe that Dinah may, indeed, have been a ROOT. There is some work still to be done on this family group. Surely she was named Dinah. Was she born a ROOT or a CUTTING? That is our current "mystery". Her married name was Brisco. She was buried at Kibling Cemetery, Strafford, Vermont, USA. She was born on 21 June 1718 at Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA. She was the daughter of James Cutting and Mary Nobles. Dinah Cutting was christened circa 1721? Unrecognized GEDCOM data: Unknown GEDCOM tag: on 21 June 1740 at Framingham, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA. She married William (Briscoe\Briscow) Brisco on 22 October 1740 at Framingham, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA. Dinah Cutting died on 26 August 1797 at Orange County, Vermont, USA, at age 79.

'Near Glasgow in Scotland, a Mr. Stronach was so unfortunate as to lose his wife. But like many other a widower, he got another; and this marriage, like others of its kind, brought troubles with it. George, an overgrown boy, quarrelled with his stepmother. After this had gone on for a long time and the afflicted father, despairing of finding a remedy for hs domestic discomfort, at last hit upon the plan of bribing the unruly son. He offered him five pounds if he would never give his stepmother any more trouble. The boy accepted the money and made solemn promises that he would never, as long as life lasted, annoy his stepmother again. To be as good as his word, he pocketed the cash and started for Glasgow. There he found a ship ready to sail for Halifax, to which city he made his way as fast as wind and water could carry him.

Here he met Benjamin Fales, who had come from New England with General Ruggles. Fales had already hired with the General to work on his new lands in Wilmot for a certain wage; and at the end of a specified number of years to get, in additon to his wage, a certain number of acres of good land. B. Fales introduced Stronach to the General who soon made him one of his staff of laborers.

These two young men, Fales, a great wit, and Stronach, as great an oddity, fulfilled their engagement with the General, got their lands, cleared away the forest, and spent long and happy lives on the North side of the Valley and left behind them a numerous progeny. Many are the anecdotes handed down of these two geniuses.'

A 'follow-on' from a poster in the Fales genealogy forum:

'The land that Stronach and Fales settled was, according to Calnek, in part payment for the labors described. This may be partly true, but the original deed for one thousand acres on that part of the North Mountain that is now Stronach Mountain was between Rufus Chandler, Esq., grantee of said acres and Stronach and Fales, purchasers of the same. This deed is with family papers as well as an oath of allegiance sworn by Rufus Chandler at Halifax on 21 September 1789, and also, a promissory note to Timothy Ruggles for thirty five pounds, dated 21 September 1789 and signed by Benjamin and Rachel Fales and George Stronach. The division of the land was five hundred acres to each man, Fales taking the western portion and Stronach, the eastern part. The boundary line between the two properties was supposed to have surveyed out by George Stronach, and today forms a portion of the Stronach Mountain Road.'

Deduction? Well, if Benjamin and Rachel signed a document in 1789, how could he have died in 1787 or before, unless it was 'Jr.' and his mother signing the promissory note? Yet another poster claims Rachel filed for a land grant in 1787 as a widow.... HMMMM!!!! Just love these sorts of family 'stories'...

Someone should write a book called 'Genealogical Incongruity'... :)

There's been some confusion on the Ebenezer connection, as some records indicate Ebenezer b. 1712 was Benjamin's brother. However, based on NS Immigrants database, believe Ebenezer (father of Benjamin) b. 1712, emigrated with his son to Nova Scotia, or, joined them later. Since Benjamin had first gone there in 1760, it was less the matter of 'UEL Land' as it was an already established location for the family. He was born on 7 July 1738 at Walpole/Taunton, Massachusetts, USA. He was the son of Ebenezer Fales and Mary Fales. Unrecognized GEDCOM data: Unknown GEDCOM tag: on 4 April 1761 at Walpole, Massachusetts, USA. Benjamin Fales married Rachel Bassett, daughter of Jeremiah Bassett and Mary Felch, on 26 May 1761 at Taunton, Bristol County, Massachusetts, USA.

Have seen numerous places listing a 1767 marriage date, but recently found online (Dec-2003) a listing of Walpole marriage records prior to 1850, showing BASSETT, Rachel of 'Tanton' and Benjamin Fales, filed marriage intentions in April of 1761. This makes FAR more sense, with marriage being blessed a month later, than six years. Especially if one takes into consideration that the first three children were all born PRIOR to 1767! Just a thought. I have since updated my OWN date for marriage to 1761. Her married name was Fales. She was born on 1 June 1739 at Norton or Taunton, Bristol County, Massachusetts, USA. She was the daughter of Jeremiah Bassett and Mary Felch. Unrecognized GEDCOM data: Unknown GEDCOM tag: on 4 April 1761 at Walpole, Massachusetts, USA.

     Experience Slocumb In 1783, a Mrs. Pedy Slocomb, is seen in marriage record to Elijah Mann. Some researchers have indicated she was 'Pedy Slocumb' at time of marriage. Indications are, however, that she may have been Mrs. (Experience) Pedy, nee Slocumb, at time of marriage. Still no absolutes in this regard, however. If she WAS 'Mrs. Pedy Slocomb' at time of marriage, she could not have been Experience Slocumb, as she would have married into the name. QUESTION: Is 'Pedy' a nickname for 'Experience'? Sure seems at least possible. She was born on 6 November 1756 at Wrentham, Norfolk County, Massachusetts, USA. She was the daughter of John Slocumb , Sr. and Experience Healy.
