Regarding your question about running across "Abair" spelled as "Abare": Until I legally changed the spelling of my name back to the original French form, I was "Jerome Abare."

There were -- and still are -- Abares in Vermont (and scattered across the country as well, of course), as well as Abairs. At least some of the latter are my cousins, though I haven't traced along those lines to find the precise connexion yet. An Andrew Abair and his family, for example, who owned a small farm north of Waterbury Center, VT, were cousins of mine. Good folks.

If you want to compare notes, feel free to write. And good luck with your continued research.

Jerome
