GOULD records, Brattleboro, VT early 1800s

I copied these following Gould marriages from records in the Town Clerk's office in Brattleboro. They were in the old book called "Ancient Town and Road Records." Anna, Hannah, Lucinda, and Lynda were daughters of Nathan Gould and Ruth Dunklee. I don't know the relationship of Assena, the Ebenezers, or Roswell P. to the others.

p. 104, #881
Roswell P. Gould and Tirzah Stockwell, both of Brattleboro, July 29, 1821, Stephen Greenleaf, JP

Also, from a book of cemetery records in the town clerk's office:
p. 15, #202
Nathan Gould, died March 22, 1813, age 65, buried Meetinghouse Hill Cemetery. [Note: this Nathan is the father of Anna, Hannah, Lucinda, and Lynda, and possibly Roswell, as it is known from his will that he had a son named Roswell.]

The records of the settlement of Nathan Gould's estate are in Vol. 5 of the Windham County Probate records, pages 477, 480, 549, and 597 and in Vol. 7, p 32. The estate was administered by Valentine Harris on June 26, 1815, after Nathan's wife Ruth and several other family members declined to execute the will. An abstract of Nathan's will names:
--beloved wife Ruth Gould
--son Nathan Jr.
--two sons Willard and Roswel Gould [both of whom were under the age of 21 when the will was written]
--daughters Ruth and Linda Gould [both under 21]
--daughters Eunice Crosby, Hannah Bowman, Anna Dunkley and Lucinda Mixer.

Eunice Gould married Reuben Crosby in Brattleboro, [no date] and had a son Nathan Gould Crosby.

I would be interested in finding out any information on the sons Willard and Roswell, and daughter Ruth.

Hope this helps someone.
