I've been researching the Phelps line in Stanbridge and northern Vermont (Enosbugh) off and on for several years using tedious paper records, so when my nephew met introduced me to Ancestry, I was thrilled. Using the Drouin collection I've put quite a few things together. But the real gem is an old family document kept for nostalgia which tied many Phelps together. So I don't know much about TenEyck but can take you back a few generations with Phelps. You know that Olive was the daughter of Adelbert. Adelbert's father, John Washington, was the brother of my great grandmother, Anne Clarinda Phelps Coffin Mead, born about 1832 in Stanbridge. She married Charles Coffin in the Baptist Church in 1850 and had a son, Charles. That is how our line descends. John W., Anne, as well as Sarah, Esther and Elizabeth were the children of William Pitt Phelps and his first wife, Anna Sweet. Although I can't confirm the date of Anna's (mother) death, William P. remarried in 1851 to Esther Jones and had additional children, Mary, Cynthia, Timothy W. and Ebenezer. Cynthia and Timothy survived to adulthood but I don't know about the others. The fascinating Phelps treasure is a list of heirs to Timothy Phelps' estate (which may not have been very large). It is through this document written in 1937 by a Nebraska lawyer that we have tracked long dispersed Phelps kin. Timothy died in 1925 in Nebraska where he traveled to follow a young lady he had met working on a farm in Vermont. I've been in touch with her descendents (Tim and Eva married but never had children) and learned a bit about him. So we know there are descendents from John W. (includes Adelbert and Olive Ardell), Anne Clarinda, Esther, Elizabeth and Cynthia scattered far and wide. Anne Clarinda's and Esther's family are in the Boston area, Elizabeth's probably in Illinois and Cynthia line may have died out in the 1960's. My nephew has a tree "Hall Family Tree" and if you type in Anne Clarinda Phelps you should get to it. I found you through Trees4U and possibly Wall Family Tree. I don't think Matt has followed the John W. line in tree format but Adelbert should show up in the list of names. I really don't do much with the ancestry format; I just keep my own lists and worksheets. I'll attach one of my lists which shows William Pitt Phelps family, listing also his parents, Ebenezer and Cynthia (Soule). I have documentation for anything I've listed with a date but there are lots of gaps. Based on documentation I found at the Missisquoi Museum with Judy Antle's help, titled "The Phelps Line in Canada", it seems that Ebenezer was born in Connecticut, the son of Joel and Jerusha (Nash), also born in Connecticut but later found living in the Missisquoi area. There is quite a detailed list taking it back further but I haven't personally confirmed many of these dates and relationships. As I reread this, it sounds a little confusing so I hope you can make sense of it. I'd be interested to know if the descendents of Olive Ardell stayed in the Stanbridge area and whether any of the names I mentioned ring a bell with you. Sorry I can't help with Ten Eyck. I'll get on to Silas Westover the next time. Marilyn Z.
