You may have noticed when looking at what your ancestors did, where they moved, etc., that when they saw a good thing, they shared the info about it with their relatives. When they found new land to pioneer in, or a business opportunity that was becoming available, they told their relatives about it. Those relatives who shared their eagerness in the "land of opportunity" then jumped at the chance to succeed together. That's how much of the Lamson and Dodge families from Exeter, NH became successful by sharing the secrets and business of pottery. The Robinsons with lumber, the Dotys with farming, and many more you'll see throughout family trees.
Now I'm continuing the tradition by sharing an opportunity with you... AMSOIL. This is a proven business that is exploding with new products and innovative marketing! Some of our ancestors made fortunes in the age of pioneering the American frontier. Now we can do the same on the information frontier.
This is sponsored by AMSOIL Direct Jobber, Ed Sanders. The AMSOIL business works a lot like a family tree. I find it fits in very well with being a genealogy addict! Check out the AMSOIL section of this site for more info and/or e-mail me.
1. Robert DODGE.
Children of Robert DODGE and Lydia DODGE were:
+2 i. Solomon DODGE.
2. Solomon DODGE was born on Nov 8 1759 in Beverly, MA. He died on Aug 8 1831 in Montpelier, VT. The following is from "Peterborough (NH) in the American Revolution by Jonathan Smith, 1913. Published by the Peterborough Historical Society. Found in the NH State Library in Concord, NH.
Solomon Dodge, probably with his parents, was a resident ot Peterborough during the latter part of the Revolution. Married Nancy Taggart, a daughter of the James Taggart who was a private in Captain Henry Jackson's (Mass.) regiment, in Peterborough, Mar 10, 1787. In the spring of 1788 he went to Montpelier, VT., with John Templeton, his brother-in-law, and his family followed him there in 1789.
Enlisted into Captain Peter Clark's company of Colonel Daniel Moore's regiment, which marched from Lyndeborough in 1777 to join the American army at Saratoga, September 30, 1777; discharged, October 27th; service, 28 days. Rank, sergeant; pay per month, L4 18s. Total pay and travel, L7 12s 3d. XV, 350, 352. Was a recruit in the Continental Army for service at West Point in 1780. Enlisted June 28th; discharged, December 6, 1780. Age, 20 years. Service, five months, 18 days. Amount of wages, L 750 8s; Allowance for blanket, L355; travel. L 58 16s. Ratio was 67 to 1. Total L1144 4s. XVI, 82, 92, 106.
The following comes from the Washington Vermont County Gazateer and Directory 1783 to 1889.
John Templeton and Solomon Dodge came from Peterboro, New Hampshire to East Montpelier, Vermont in June of 1788 and selected adjacent lots for their future homes. Templeton selected the place where his grandson Austin T. resides and Dodge located on the farm where his youngest daughter, Mrs. J.R. Young resides. They commenced to fell the forest at once but soon returned to Peterborough to do the haying.
Returning to East Montpelier they spent the remainder of the season on their lots clearing land and building each of them a log house. In March of 1789 they returned with their families and made East Montpelier their permanent home. They had married sisters and were accompanied by their father-in-law, James Taggart. The party stopped a while with Colonel Davis at Montpelier. But as soon as practicable they wended their way through snow two feet deep to their cabins in the wilderness, five miles away. Templeton found that the back roof of his cabin had in part blown away or crushed by the snow, so that the snow was nearly as deep inside the house as without. There was no alternative but to clear away the snow, build a fire and repair the damages. Both the Templetons and the Dodges spent the remainder of their lives on these farms. Thus began the first permanent settlement of East Montpelier. All of that season, until late fall when Colonel Davis had completed his grist mill they were obliged to carry their flour and meal from the nearest mill at Williamstown on their backs, a distance of twenty miles.

Henry Howe WHEELER was born on May 11 1835 in prob. in Calais, VT.. He died in 1915. He was buried in Robinson Cem., Calais, VT.. Woodbury, VT The following written by Doris Wheeler Gallison: Mrs. Alma Leonard's records say Henry was a farmer and lived about one mile from the Robinson Cemetary in the Maple Corners, Kent Corners area of Calais Vermont. Adeline's ancestry runs back in Calais and further back to the first Ainsworth arrival in America. Ainsworth genealogy written manyyears ago shows her as daughter of Fordis; grandaughter of Parley and great-grand-daughter of Jacob, whose house still stands in the Pekin section of Calais. Henry and Adeline had eight children, all apparently born in Calais. I (Doris) searched Woodbury, VT vital records c. 1837 to 1903 and found no recorded births of children born to them. Only mention of the two children, Charles and Amanda who married Woodbury residents. No official document has been found that indicates when Henry and Adeline moved to East Woodbury. However The Washington County Gazateer and Directory 1783-1889 lists the following: Woodbury - Wheeler, Henry H. (lower Cabot address) rd. 44; 10 cows; farmer; 100 acres; leases 100 of Horace Burnham. Claribell Gallison of Plainfield, VT possesses a scrapbook compiled by Elsie Mann Smith. In the book I (Doris) found a newspaper clipping - June 20, 1901 - L.H. Goodell (Woodbury) is building a new house for Henry Wheeler. I remember my father (Raymond) telling about his uncle's West and Parley building a new house for their parents and doing some of the work themselves. He said it was a very nice looking house but everyone wondered why they built it where the barns cut off the beautiful view of the mountains. Copy of an item found among a collection of newspaper clippings: "April, 1908 - Henry Wheeler of Woodbury was watering a cow in the manger; she raised her head and he was struck in the eye by her horn. It is feared he has lost the sight of it. He was taken to the emergency hospital in Barre."

("My Gene Book" says he drove the Montpelier - Calais stage for many years.) After Alonzos death, Lucy and Will remained on the farm. When Will married in 1911 an apartment was made for Lucy in the end of the house nearest the road. In a few years Will suffered poor health and on July 4, 1919 he passed away suddenly. Soon Alonzo's grand-nephew Julius Wheeler, son of Simon and Inda, sold his farm in the Klondike area (farther north on County Road) and bought Alonzo's farm. Lucy remained in the apartment until her death. She was affectionately known as "Aunt Lucy" to the neighborhood. He was married to Lucy GOODELL on Nov 15 1858 in Calais, VT.

Later they moved to Kents Corner where Joel was born. (It's not known for sure which house but it may have been the Bulluck house.) After this they lived on a farm on the county road in East Montpelier. These buildings burned; were rebuilt and later lived in by Chester and Lucy Anderson, Inda's half sister.
