Subject: Missing Siblings-John,Benjamin,Moses,Silence and Betsey Gould.
Date: Mon, 12 Mar 2001 10:38:13 EST

I am trying to find information on my GGGrandfather Samuel Atherton Gould's
siblings. Below is a list from Bolton ,MA Vital records with the date of his
parents marriage and the births of him and his siblings. I have found out
that Silence Atherton Gould died in Bolton,MA in 1816. I know that Samuel was
living in Pittsford,VT Rutland county when he married Catherine Willard
Porter in 1808 in Wendell,Franklin County,MA. One of their children George
Stoddard Gould is buried in the Congregational Church Cemetery in
Pittsford,VT - he died in October 1813. By 1820 my Goulds were in NY -first
in Oneida County (Utica) and later in Onondaga county(Dewitt and
Syracuse).Another daughter of Samuel's married & stayed in Oswego,NY.
I am wondering what happened to the rest of Samuel's siblings
Benjamin,Betsey,John, Moses and Silence. Is anyone looking for these Goulds
that went from MA ,to VT, to NY. Some of Samuel's children went to
I have found that families tended to go where they had family living. Here is
the information from the Bolton,MA VR
