Capt. John Stark of Pawlet, Vt.

Correcting information on John Stark of Pawlet.
He was not from N.H. & not a cousin of the famous
John Stark whose wife was Molly Stark. He was
a descendant of Aaron Stark of Conn. He married
Eunice Adams, a descendant of Henry Adams of
Braintree, Ma. Both John Starks were at the
Battle of Bennington. A daughter, Rachel, married Ephraim Jones of Pawlet. Another daughter married Col. Stephen Pearl for whom
Pearl Street in Bennington was named. Ephraim
& Rachel had a daughter, Zanna, (not Rosanna)
who married David Kelley of Rutland and they
moved to Ill. After David's death she returned
to Vermont to live with her son, Thomas Benton
Kelley. I have a letter she wrote on her heritage. She is buried in Rutland. I have
Zanna's portrait.
