This in turn leads to a user-submitted genealogy on Family Search. I'll report it - without having seen the records supporting the information:

Asa Gilbert born 26 May 1750 in Brookfield, Worcester, Massachusetts died 1806 Pittsfield, Rutland, VT; Asa's father John Gilbert b 28 July 1723 and John died 13 January 1806 and Asa's mother Sarah Abbott born 06 November 1725 and died 19 February 1793
Asa married
Hannah Barnes born 24 August 1740 in Brookfield, Worcester, Mass; she died 1796 Saint Johnsbury, Caledonia, VT. Her parents Comfort Barnes b October 1706 died 17 January 1747 and Hannah's mother was Sarah Abbott born 17 March 1704

Also from the same tree:
Rebecca Redding born about 1785 in New Braintree, Worcester, Mass. No parents named.

NOTES from the same tree: Moved to Mansfield, NY.
[note from me: There is a Mansfield in Cattaraugus County, New York]

Two family members are named as sources, along with Brookfield vital records.

MUCH FURTHER GENEALOGY from the same tree:
one family line is traced back to John Howe born 1556 in Berwick, St Leonards, Wiltshire, England

ALSO from FAMILY SEARCH - a digital image is available!
