From: Barbara Milne < >
     I have been doing some research on my family history and found information on my great-great grandmother - Fanny Bigelow.
     Fanny Bigelow was born around 1805 and died on May 23, 1869.  She married Samuel Hale in 1825 and then married Ira Benson in 1845.
     She had three children with Samuel Hale.  They were William Hale, Mary Hale (Clark) and Luke Hale. 
Her sister was Lavinia or Lavina Bigelow. 
Vital records requests seeking records relating to Samuel & Luke Hale.  I have conducted a search of our holdings and regret only the marriage records for Samuel and Fanny were found and they are not complete.  I am attaching these records for your reference.  It appears the family settled in Brandon so you might want to contact the Brandon town clerk to inquire if records exist on the local level as vital records were not required by law to be filed on the state level until 1909.  A full listing of Vermont town clerks is found at
