Anyone know these Pixleys?

My grandfather Leroy Arthur Pixley (1885-1971) is the son of Arthur James Pixley (1862-?1890)& Cora Irish b.,1865.
They came from Hyde Park, Vt. where they were married c1880.
My grandfather was adopted by his grandfather James M. Pixley in 1892-(his 1st wife was Lusetta Bagley-& his parents were: Alexander Pigsley/Pixley? & Abigail Haskins. I have the adoption papers from Wisconsin. He was raised by James.I understood that Leroy's parents had been divorced. However, an entry in Family lists Arthur as dying "about 1890".
It also lists two other children: Stella b. c1887 & Anna b. c1890. My grandfather had a daughter named Stella (who died young)-so this would make sense. I had not heard of "Anna". They are all said to be born in Hyde Park, Lamoille, Vt.
Does anyone have record of Stella Pixley or Anna Pixley or
their parents? I have not been able to trace Arthur-perhaps because he did die in 1890. And have no record of
Cora Irish or her ancestry.
For further information on this line go to: or go to & type in pixleyblair.
My line is also listed in the McCallum 'Pixley' book.
And what about the Pigsley/Pixley name change-then back again? Why was it done etc?
