Caroline E (Carrie) PETERSON was born on 23 Aug 1852 in Hermon, NY. She died on 21 May 1919 in Fullerville, NY at her sister's, Mrs. William (Emily) Chapin's, home. She was buried on 24 May 1919 in Hermon, NY Cemetery. Caroline was first found in the Hermon 1860 census at age 8. In the 1870 Hermon census, she was 17 and married to Azro, and they are living with her parents. Her death record, found in the Town of Fowler, NY, gives her birth date as 23 August 1850. Her tombstone says 1852; this would agree with her age in the 1860 and 1870 censuses. Her cause of death is cerebral apoplexy. In the 1900 Town of Hermon census, her middle initial appears to be E.
Her obituary in The Gouverneur Free Press on 4 June 1919, page 2 read:
"Death of Mrs. A. A. Ladd
Mrs. A. A. Ladd, aged 68 years, died may 21st at the home of her sister, Mrs. William Chapin, of Fullerville. She had been in failing health during the past winter, but within the past few weeks all knew that the end was near. Everything that loving care and best medical aid could do, was done but without avail. She bore her sufferings with Christian patience and fortitude. Her gentle, kindly nature endeared her to all who knew her. She was a kind and affectionate mother and a person of many friends.
She leaves to morn her death, two sons, Eugene and Ernest, both of Gouverneur; two sisters, Mrs. William Chapin of Fullerville and Mrs. Oliver Robinson of Gouverneur; also three granddaughters, Mrs. Vernon Creighton of Talcville and the Misses Julia and Gladys Ladd of Gouverneur. A prayer was offered by Reverend Bartlett of Edwards and funeral services were held at the Baptist Church at Hermon, officiated by Reverend Smith. Interment was in Hermon Cemetery.
Her face may be wrinkled and faded,
Her cheeks may be sunken and wan;
Her eyes be as dim as the gloaming,
That once were as bright as the dawn,
But smooth ye the locks that are faded,
And tenderness never refuse,
You never can pay back her kindness,
You have but one mother to lose." Parents: David PETERSON and Maria REED.

George PHELPS was born in 1606 in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, England. He died on 8 May 1687 in Westfield, MA. George is found on page 72 of volume 1, and he is person number 1 on pages 1259 - 1268 of volume 2 in the Phelps Family books. He emigrated to New England, then unmarried, with his elder brother William, wife and family, sailing from Plymouth, England, 20 March 1630 in the ship Mary and John. Landing at Nantasket, now Hull, 30 May 1630, he settled in Dorchester, MA, with his brother and others of the Rev. Mr. Warham's Church, the first settlers of Dorchester. In 1632, George was granted 6 acres of land in Dorchester. 28 Oct 1634 he was chosen one of ten men to order the affairs of the Colony for one year. 6 May 1635 he was chosen a Freeman. In the fall of 1635, he moved to the founding of Windsor, CT, with the Rev. Mr. Warham's Church, of which he was a member, in all about sixty. He located at the junction of the Farmington and Great (now Connecticut) Rivers. There was no finer location in Windsor.
After his first wife died, George married Frances Dewey, 16 Nov 1648. In 1670, George moved with her to Westfield, MA.
The above mentioned pages give many accounts of happenings in George's life, too numerous and wordy to be included here. Parents: William PHELPS and Dorothy.

Captain Isaac PHELPS was born on 26 Aug 1638 in Windsor, CT. He died on 2 Jun 1725 in Westfield, MA. Isaac is person number 2 in volume 2, page 1269. Isaac first settled in Windsor where his first two children were born. He was admitted a member of the Windsor Church 27 June 1666 (Church records says Oscar Phelps). He moved to Westfield, MA in 1670-1 and was soon chosen Selectman and during his life held various offices in Westfield. He was Town Clerk, Assessor, Surveyor, Town Treasurer, and School Master. 9 April 1702, he agrees with the town or selectmen to keep school for one year, as school master of the town, and to teach to read and write such children as should be sent to school, and for this service he was to receive 20 pounds. At this time he was Town Clerk. The duties as teacher appear to have occupied so much of his time that he was relieved of the duty of Town Clerk, which office he does not again hold until 1713. He was 64 years of age when he took the office of Town School Teacher. At the age of 76, he was given the title of Capt. - probably from services rendered in the early Indian Wars. In 1724 he was chosen Town Treasurer, then in his 86th year. Early town records contain many pages written by Isaac. He has the oldest stone in the Westfield Cemetery. Parents: George PHELPS and Phillury RANDALL.
Isaac PHELPS was born on 10 Sep 1666 in Windsor, CT. He died on 14 Jun 1698 in Westfield, MA. Isaac is listed as person #11 on pages 1276 and 1269 of the Phelps Family book, volume 2. At a young age, he moved from Windsor, CT to Westfield, MA with his father. Isaac settled in Westfield, MA, and he owned Covenant in Westfield Church in 1692. In 1685 privilege was given Isaac Phelps and others to build a saw mill on the north side of the river and is referred to as owning a mill in 1691.
He died intestate. His wife Mary was appointed Administratrix of the Estate of Isaac Phelps. No children were named. North Hampton Probate 1698.
Their son Isaac was second born to the couple. Other children were David and Aaron. Parents: Captain Isaac PHELPS and Ann GAYLORD.
Isaac PHELPS was born on 26 Jan 1692 in Westfield, MA. He died in 1777. Isaac is listed as person # 57 in the Phelps Family book on pages 1297 and 1276, volume 2. He first probably married a daughter of David Clark, of Simsbury and Windsor, who granted lands in Simbury to his son-in-law Isaac Phelps of Windsor 5 Feb 1725-6. They had twins 22 Aug 1727. Isaac died the same day; the girl died 12 days later. His wife died soon after. In 1732, we find him in the tax list of Poquonock, CT. Many years later, in company with his son Isaac, he owned the Rainbow mills.
Isaac married second widow Sarah Palmer. Son, Isaac, was their 3rd born child; other children were Sarah, Rebecca, Mary, Bathsheba, Theodosia, and Lucy. When wife Sarah died, probate records show that Isaac Ashley of Westfield was appointed guardian of Isaac and Mary Phelps, minors and children of Isaac Phelps of Westfield, in devisees of Timothy Palmer.
Isaac appears to have married third Joana Adams on 8 May 1755; she died 4 Nov 1771. Isaac resided in Westfield, Windsor, and Poquonck and was interested in mill property in Windsor, from his grandfather, Captain John Mosley. His will dated 6 Dec 1733 was probated at Harford 14 Nov 1777. Parents: Isaac PHELPS and Mary MOSLEY.
Lieutenant Isaac PHELPS was born on 16 Apr 1734 in Westfield, MA. In the Phelps Family book, Isaac is listed on pages 1327 (incorrectly as person #228; 228 was a earlier half brother also named Isaac who died at birth) and 1298 (correctly as person # 232) of volume 2. His baptism date is given instead of his birth date (another authority says his baptism was 22 Feb 1732). He moved with his father to Windsor, CT when he was about 8 years old.
Phares was the 4th born child to Isaac and Jemima; his siblings were Isaac, Jesse, Zerah, and Jemima.
He second married Anna Brown of Sandisfield, MA 27 Jan 1779; Isaac appears to have lived a time in Tyringham, MA where Anna died. He third married Joanna Hathaway, and he lived in Otis for a time where Joanna died. Isaac served in the Revolutionary War as Sergeant, and a commission was granted him as Lieutenant in Windsor, CT, 3 Nov 1786. Parents: Isaac PHELPS and Sarah PALMER.
James PHELPS was born in 1520 in England. He died in 1588 in Tewkesbury, England. James Phelps and his descendants are found in a two volume set of books, "The Phelps Family of America and their English Ancestors" by Judge Oliver Seymour Phelps and Andrew T. Servin published in 1899. Volume I is for the English part of the family, and Volume 2 is for the American part of the family. James is found on page 70 of Volume I and is the number 1 English person.
Taken from Tewkesbury Abbey Church records: James Phelps born about 1520 and supposed to have been a brother of Francis Phylppe of Nether Tyne, Staffordshire, England.
Says Prerogative Court of Canterbury, administrations 1587 - 1591, page 60, "May 10th, 1588 commission issued to Joan Phelps relict of James Phelps, late of Tewkesbury, deceased, to administer the goods and chattels of said deceased".
William was the first child of James and Joan. The couple's other children were Thomas, George, Alice, Edward, Keneline, Richard, and Robert.
May 31, 1613 commission issued to Nicholas Phelps, brother of William Phelps, late of Tewkesbury, deceased, to administer the goods and chattels of the said deceased during the minority of William Phelps, his son, by reason of the death of Dorothy Phelps, relict of the said William Phelps, deceased, leaving goods still unadministered. From this it appears that James and Joan had a son Nicholas, not baptised or at least not recorded in the baptism.
Julia C PHELPS was born on 21 Mar 1823 in Milton, Chittenden, Vermont. She died on 24 Jun 1910 in Hermon, NY. She was buried on 27 Jun 1910 in Hermon, NY Cemetery. Julia's death record, in Hermon, NY, said that her father was Orange Phelps and her mother's maiden name was Childs; she was 87y 3m 3d old. She died of cardiac dispepsia and arterio scleroses in her Maple Street home. The LDS web site gives her mother as Sarah Minor; this agrees with a two volume set of books, "The Phelps Family of America and their English Ancestors" by Judge Oliver Seymour Phelps and Andrew T. Servin published in 1899. A copy is in the Rochester, NY central library, and it lists Julia's ancestors back to England. She is noted on page 1428 of volume2; her person # is 1659.
Julia's obituary was in The Gouverneur Free Press on 6 July 1910, page 2, and reads:
"The death of Mrs. Julia C. Ladd, widow of Lyman Ladd, which occurred here June 24, removes from this section one of our oldest and most highly esteemed residents. Mrs. Ladd was born in Vermont March 21, 1823, a daughter of the late Orange and Julia Phelps Ladd. She was united in marriage to Lyman Ladd on New Year's Day, 1845, and the family came to Hermon in 1853.

The oldest daughter died 39 years ago on the same date that her mother was summoned from earth. The surviving children are, Miss Chloe Ladd, Spencer and Azro Ladd of this town and George Ladd of Deerfield, Mass.
The funeral services were conducted from the home Sunday, June 27, by Rev. J. A. Thoms, who took for his text, "She is not dead but sleepeth." The floral tributes were profuse and beautiful attenting in part the love and esteem that was felt for the departed. Interment was made in the village cemetery." Parents: Orange PHELPS and Sarah MINOR.
Spouse: Lyman LADD. Lyman LADD and Julia C PHELPS were married on 1 Jan 1845 in Vermont. Children were: Spencer Howe LADD, Delilah J LADD, Herbert LADD, Azro A LADD, Eugene H LADD, Esmerelda LADD, Adell M LADD, George W LADD, Eva LADD, Chloe Edith LADD.
Orange PHELPS was born on 1 May 1793 in Milton, Chittenden, Vermont. He died on 27 Jan 1873 in Milton, Chittenden, Vermont. He was a farmer. Orange is person # 1004 in the Phelps Family book and is on pages 1428 and 1372 of volume 2.
In February 1882, Heman A. Phelps was made guardian over his father, according to a local Montpelier newspaper: Heman A. Phelps has been appointed guardian of Orange Phelps, his father.
News article on the death of Orange Phelps:
Death of Orange Phelps--There was a brief mention of the death of Orange Phelps in the "Milton Mere Mention," last week, but that does not suffice for a man like him. He was the father of Heman A. and George Phelps. Despite his 93 years, until about two years since, he retained his mental faculties fully. He has been a man of strong character. He had more than many, the elements to plan, execute, and then reap the fruits of his effort. He was an active advocate of the President's policy in the matters that antedated and caused the war of 1812. He showed his faith by his works, doing good service in the army, being prominent and honorably mentioned in the battle of Plattsburgh. He was quite gifted in conversation even in his later days. His memory was unusually clear and he would relate many incidents of interest, both of written and unwritten history. He was a true lover and a good hater. He was always a strong, earnest, clever Democrat. He was never off and on, but always there. Truly one of the old landmarks is gone. During his later days he has been cared for by Mr. and Mrs. H.A. Phelps, his children. The care and burden was not shirked by them. Kindly and well, only as true children with large hearts, did they care for him. And it may be truly said that "his last days were his best days," made so by their constant administrations of care and love. We fear that more of the young men will fail to fill his place than will excel him in all that makes a good citizen. But our older inhabitant remains Henry Clinton, father of "Jack" and "Henry," who was 104 years old last month. Parents: Phares PHELPS.
Phares PHELPS was born on 29 Sep 1765 in Windsor, CT. Phares was person # 521 in the Phelps Family book and is listed on pages 1372 and 1327 of volume 2. Mr. Phelps settled in Milton, Vt., according to a letter to his father on 3 Feb 1803. Orange was the fifth child born to this couple. The other children were Jesse, Alfred, Chloe, and Mary. Parents: Lieutenant Isaac PHELPS and Jemima HOLCOMB.
Children were: Orange PHELPS.
William PHELPS was born on 4 Aug 1560 in Tewkesbury, England. He died in 1611 in Tewkesbury, England. William is person number 2, on page 71 of the Phelps Family books in volume 1. Aug 4, 1560 was his baptism date, not his birth date.
Prerogative Court of Canterbury, 28 Sep 1611 administrations 1611 to 1614: "Commissioned to Dorothy Phelps, relict of William Phelps late of Tewkesbury, deceased, to administer the goods and chattles of the said deceased."
George was the eighth child born to this couple. All the children have records of being baptized in the Tewkesbury Abbey Church except for George, but George is unquestionably the son of this couple. The other children were Mary, Mary, Thomas, Dorothy, William, James, and Elizabeth. Parents: James PHELPS and Joan.
