Something else I just found about my great-grandfather's farm. My grandfather would have been almost 13 at the time, in July 1914.

1914 Severe Storm: Desire Dubuque Jr's home.
· 6 April 2016 · 0 Comments
source: genealgoybank.com; Thursday, July 30, 1914 Paper: St. Albans Messenger (St. Albans, Vermont) Page: 2 Piece: Two of Two.

Storm Damage in Grand Isle County. Devastation wrought by the severe rain and wind storm in North Hero was even greater than at first believed.
All the rail fences on the farm of Desire Dubuque Jr, were blown along the lake shore, and Mr Dubuque's house was flooded with water, driven in through doors and windows.
Trains were stalled by immense trees that feel across that track and the tops of three freight cars were blown off.
It was the most severe wind storm in that section in 18 years.

One of my co-workers has been very depressed for months because he has to liquidate his family farm in Vermont which has been in the family for about 200 years.
Sad.

From The Boston Language Institute : The Bilingual US: French Vermont

https://bostonlanguage.wordpress.com...rench-vermont/

excerpt

The first European explorers to discover Vermont were in fact French: Jacques Cartier is thought to have set foot in Vermont in 1535 while Samuel de Champlain visited the area he named les Verts Monts (The Green Mountains) in 1609 and would thereafter give his name to the state’s important lake. The construction of Fort Sainte Anne on Isle La Motte in Lake Champlain- the first European settlement in Vermont- signaled France’s claim to the area.

Southern Vermont, meanwhile, saw settlement from the neighboring British colonies of New York and Massachusetts. The area remained a disputed territory until the 1763 Treaty of Paris following the French and Indian War ceded control to the British, who decided to allow settlement only in Southern Vermont, leaving Northern Vermont to the Indians. A cultural distinction between North and South remains to this day.

Vermont, whose population center, Burlington, lies only 45 miles from the Canadian border, is simply the closest state to Quebec, and so early Canadian immigrants often stopped their journey here. Between 1840 and 1930 900,000 French-Canadians immigrated to the United States. In 1860, 44% (16,580 people) of the immigrants from Quebec to the six New England states had chosen to remain in Vermont, although industrialization later caused immigrants to prefer the factory towns of Southern New England over the agricultural jobs generally found in Vermont.

Stephen W. Meader published lots of good books on early pioneer life in North America.
His style was up beat and full of adventure about young men On the farm, portable saw mills, trapping and such.
I've Read Trap Line's North & Red Horse Hill.
If I recall the latter was about a portable saw mill gang w/horses and their travels throughout New England.
If you haven't read it already I'd highly recommend reading this one & others by Stephen W. Meader.

My bad I read this some years ago in 1975-6... Sorry for the mistake the story of the Lumberjacks w/portable saw mill belongs to Lumberjack not Red Horse Hill.

A video I found, taken on the shore within a few hundred feet of my grandparents house. Time-lapse sunset over the New York shore. Maybe even from what was my grandparents, as that or the adjacent lot would be the first easily accessible shoreline (not on a cliff). Taken by Paul Rude.

From the same videographer (Paul Rude) - I am 90% sure this is from the shore of the northern edge of my great-grandparents farm - because of the road safety barrier you can see, and the trees that are on the other side of the road, looking South. The sunset is more or less looking towards Plattsburgh.

I hope we can get the thumbnail photos back at some point, so the photos here and on thousands of other posts can be seen again.

Edit: I received an email from the Lake Champlain Land Trust, about a Wildflower Hike there May 13.

latest brochures on Butternut Hill

http://www.lclt.org/butternut-hill/

excerpt


HISTORY

Butternut Hill Natural Area was conserved in 2012. Two North Hero, VT families, the Williams and the Keyes, worked alongside each other, the Lake Champlain Land Trust, and The Nature Conservancy of Vermont to conserve wildlife habitat and lakeshore along Lake Champlain.
Butternut Hill Natural Area combines conserved land from the Williams family, the Keyes family, and the Town of North Hero, protecting a spectacular, old floodplain forest, while providing public access to the forest and the lake via the trails starting at the Town of North Hero’s former Camp Ingalls land.

PARTNERS

Butternut Hill was conserved in partnership with the Nature Conservancy, the Town of North Hero, and the Lake Champlain Land Trust.
