I am seeking the parents of Lavinia Beardsley, my 5th great grandmother. She was born 1726 in Stratford, Fairfield County, Connecticut and married Stephen Fairchild .in 1746 in Fairfield County, CT. She died in 1816 in Georgia, Franklin County, Vermont.

Sometime in the mid 1760's, Stephen moved his family to Arlington, VT, north of Bennington, where they lived until 1787. In that year, Stephen and Lavinia moved again to northwest Vermont to the township of Georgia, between Burlington and St. Albans. There the Fairchilds lived out their lives.

There children to adulthood were:

Hannah              b 1747
Bathsheba              b 1751
Amy                      b 5 Dec 1752
Stephen, Jr.              b 1761
Daniel                     b 1763
Daughter (Brewster)        b 1765
Joel                     b 1766
Truman              b 1768
Lovinia              b 10 Feb 1774
