I am working on the Carpenter family migration to Stanstead, Lower Canada. I found the 1825 census that has the Amos Carpenter household with a male over 60, female over 45 (that is the most senior age category provided) and a child under 14 (no idea - could be servant or grandchild).
I did find a South Hadley, MA birth listing for John Lane's children and now have a definitive date for Elizabeth "Betsey" Lane (06 Oct 1762). I am furnishing this document now and will also send along other docs as I flesh this generation out for my DAR supplemental application. Uncle Cliff (Harry Carpenter) would be so proud.
< See image: RIN 145199 John Lane.jpg for further details.  >
I did have a nice chat with Terry. I can't believe he walked past me in the DAR genealogy office and I didn't know. Rats. Thanks for giving me the heads up and also for breaking the case of our family's 70 year mystery/death certificate red herring. I just love brick walls coming down!!!

DEATH: Stanstead Township, not Stamstead,_Quebec_(township)
Stanstead, Quebec (township)
Stanstead is a township municipality of about 1,000 people in the Memphrémagog Regional County Municipality in the Estrie region of Quebec. It is not to be confused with the city of Stanstead (founded 1995), which is nearby although not directly adjacent (the municipality of Ogden lies in between).
Formally, the township consists of two villages: Fitch Bay (founded in 1855) and Georgeville (founded in the 1890s). Both villages formed as a result of English-speaking migrants from the United States state of Vermont.

! This may be the lead I need to find my
way back to the source of John Carpenter b. 1797 in VT! I had about
decided that he was an alien dropped from the sky, so of course the name
Roswell (as in Roswell, NM, home of extraterrestrials) gave me pause. Now
I see all these Roswell CARPENTERs, I'm really excited. The Roswell who is
the son of Roswell was age-mate to John b. 1797 in VT, and that Roswell was
born in VT of parents from VT. The Roswell who was son/grandson of the
three Timothys was age-mate to them both. So John has two Roswells his
age, and one who is a generation older. The Tim-Tim-Tim Roswell had a son,
Roswell, who was almost exactly the age-mate of John's son, James, who had
a grandson named Roswell. Well, it makes more sense scrawled out on a
sheet of paper with arrows all over the place. But the point is, there was
a Roswell the age of John's father, there were two Roswells John's age,
there was one Roswell the same age as John's son, James, and James had a
son named Francis, and Francis had a son named Roswell. Now I need the
time to dig around and find out exactly how John and James fit into this
scheme. And Phoebe: does this do anything for you and/or the rest of the
Lost Branch Detectives?
