In Reply to: Wiswall/wiswell/wiswold family by Janet Derbyshire of 126

A little bit from Joseph Wiswall's book. Levi was born in Dummerston, VT in 1773. Olive Perham was of Athens, VT. and was also born in 1773. They lived in Townshend, VT where Levi was on the Grand List for $209 in 1799, 1802 and 1810, among others. Since the Grand List represented one percent of true valuation, Levi was far from poor, especially in those days. In 1817 they moved to Hyde Park, VT. where Olive died on 7 Jan 1830. Levi then married Olive's widowed sister, Mrs. Powers. He died in 1865.
