of New-Hampshire in New England

Caledonia County, formed in 1792, is part of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. It was also the birthplace of Marcia Irene Staples, born 15 June 1908. These pages are based on Marcia's ancestral lines, most of whom immigrated to this area five to seven generations before her birth.

Ancestral lines present at this time include the surnames Barnes, Ward, Rollins, Peck, Prescott, and Staples. Many related families also appear in the work. Like so many family history sites, this is a work in progress. The site was designed to provide family members with an interesting and fun presentation of the family history and so contains a large variety of links and many ways to view the family story.

The map shown above comes from the Library of Congress Maps of North America, 1750-1789, collection and can be accessed at their American Memory site. Note that the area which includes Caledonia County is labelled " Choice White Pines and good Land." This map was published in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, in 1761, and is titled "An accurate map of His Majesty's Province of New-Hampshire in New England, taken from actual surveys of all the inhabited part, and from the best information of what is uninhabited, together with the adjacent countries, which exhibits the theatre of this war in that part of the world, by Col. Blanchard and the Revd. Mr. Langdon." It was engraved by Thomas Jefferys.
