Charles Howard CARPENTER was born on 15 Aug 1911 in Cabot, Vermont. He died on 22 Mar 1981 in Berlin, Vermont. Charles grew up on his father's farm in Cabot. At the time of his mother's death in 1930, Charles was 19 years old, and the only child remaining at home. During the depression he worked for a while at the Roger's store in Cabot Village, in order to earn some cash with which to help make ends meet on the farm. Charles' father, Howard, had never really been a sugarmaker, as the sugarbush on the farm had been destroyed by caterpillars sometime around the turn of the century. Charles and his brother George, however, enjoyed sugaring on a small scale when they were young, and during the depression, Howard bought some sugaring equipment to try to add to the farm income. Charles built a new sugarhouse in 1948 in a very small stand of sugar trees northwest of the farmhouse, and sugared there until 1958. While Charles worked for his father, the barn was remodeled several times and the dairy herd was expanded to about 35 head of Jerseys. He was active in the Farm Bureau for a number of years, and his work for that organization allowed him to meet farmers all over central Vermont. Many of these acquaintances developed into lasting friendships. After the death of their father in 1953, Charles and his sister, Flora, operated the farm as partners until his marriage to Barbara Blachly in 1958. Barbara lived on an abandoned farm adjacent to the Carpenter farm. Charles and Barbara worked very hard to bring her run down farm into a condition which would support a family. During their first few years there, while raising two girls, they cleared the fields of rocks and trees, brought in tons of chicken manure to fertilize the fields, built a shop, a sugarhouse, and a new dairy barn, expanded the house, purchased more land, and increased the size of their dairy herd from six to twelve cows. He enjoyed a diversified work schedule which included sugaring, logging, dairying, and antiquing. Throughout his life, Charles enjoyed buying and selling antiques, and after his marriage he managed to develop this interest into a lucrative hobby. He and Barbara once owned the Lower Cabot Schoolhouse which they filled with antiques and then held an auction. Antiques became an important component of the family's income, and of the methods and means by which their work was done. Over the years, Charles and Barbara experimented many times with antiquated farm equipment, and enjoyed doing things the old fashioned way. Much of the farmwork was done with horses until several years after Charles died. He was an active member of the Cabot Historical Society, and was responsible for much of the restoration of the West Hill School. He served a term as director of the Washington Electric Co-operative and was also a member of the Vermont Maple Sugar Makers Association. Charles was social, and always enjoyed participating in community activities. The family usually had a float in the fourth of July parades in Cabot, and once in Plainfield.

Much interested in public affairs, he served his town as moderator, tax collector, library trustee, and town representative. He was also a farmer, creamery worker, Methodist lay speaker and a church official. George and his family lived for a short time on what later became known as the Persons farm on Southwest Hill in Cabot, where Will and Alison Ameden resided in 1996. The Carpenters later farmed in Lower Cabot across the Winooski river from the old mill building of the Headwater Lumber Company. Later they resided in a house situated at the intersection of Southwest Hill and the Marshfield road (house owned by J. Earl Pike in 1996) Parents: Howard Hastings CARPENTER and Lillian B. SHEPARD .
George Nathan CARPENTER was born on 18 Mar 1838 in Marshfield, Vermont. He died on 9 Aug 1906 in Cabot, Vermont. (18) Death caused by endocarditis, bronchitis. George Carpenter grew up in Marshfield and attended the old brown schoolhouse in Marshfield village. He served in the War of the Rebellion and was taken prisoner at Harper's Ferry and imprisoned at Chicago. He was promoted to Second Lieutenant as commander of Company F, 9th Vermont Infantry Volunteers, and discharged without injury after three years. His sword is still in the Carpenter family. George petitioned the government for a pension, as he believed his service in the war had ruined his health. There has been a suspicion in the family that perhaps George was an alcoholic. His second wife, Adelia, was very much involved in the business of running the farm, and in the land transactions they were involved in, perhaps out of necessity.
About a year after the death of his wife, Elvira, George purchased the Osgood farm in Cabot, and sometime after 1870 removed there with his son Willie and his second wife, Adelia Perry. They farmed there until 1883, when they purchased the farm across the road from Heman and Theron Lamphere. The two farms were operated as one from that point on although the mortgage on the Osgood place had been forclosed, and the Carpenter's didn't regain ownership of that farm for several years. The family moved into the Lamphere house, and, five generations and 110 years later, the house is still owned by their descendants.
In 1870, George was one of thirteen men petitioning the town of Cabot to build a road from his house to the nearest road leading to Marshfield Village. The Carpenter's daughter, Jettie, later attended school in Marshfield, and a diary kept by her brother, Howard, indicates that the family did most of their business there.
The 1870 census shows George living in Cabot with Willie. Julia Averill, aged 18, was living with him and keeping house. Also Rosa Averill, aged 2.
The 1880 census shows that George and Adelia owned 18 chickens, 8 sheep, 9 lambs, 7 milk cows, 7 calves, and one "other cattle." There were also 2 horses and $250 in farm machinery. That year they raised on the farm 300 bushels of potatoes (on 2 acres), 900 lbs. of butter, 90 dozen eggs, 175 bushels of oats, 20 bushels of Indian corn, 10 bushels of barley, 25 bushels of wheat, 2 acres of beans, fifty bushels of apples, 1000 lbs. of maple sugar, and 50 cords of wood. They had a hired man for 30 weeks that year for $5.00 per week. Parents: Abijah Howard CARPENTER and Susan Dow.

Howard Hastings CARPENTER(27) (28) was born on 9 Jul 1877 in Cabot, Vermont. He died on 26 Jan 1953 in Cabot, Vermont. He was buried on 28 Jan 1953 in Durant Cemetery, Cabot, Vermont. Howard attended the Southwest Hill school in Cabot. As a boy he worked on his father's farm, sometimes working out with his father's corn planter. About 1900, Howard was engaged to teach the upper grades of the Marshfield village school. In addition to the prescribed course of instruction, he taught the boys boxing during recess. This time in the village afforded Howard ample opportunity to call on his sweetheart, who was also teaching in several of the schools in Marshfield. After their marriage, Howard and Lillian lived first in Marshfield caring for her father until he died. Howard was working at the Marshfield creamery. They then lived in Cabot village for a short time, and later they moved to the Carpenter farm, where they divided the house with his parents, George and Adelia, and where they remained the rest of their lives. During Howard's youth, the Carpenter family was more closely connected with Marshfield Village than with Cabot, and after his marriage to Lillian, these connections were strengthened. As a farmer, Howard continued to do business in Marshfield, in part because the railroad made it more of a commercial center than was Cabot Village, and in part because Lillian's family was located there. Howard made and peddled butter for several years after the death of his parents, and later also raised chickens in a barn which he built for that purpose. The cows were wintered in the barn at the Osgood farm which was owned by Howard's sister Jettie until he bought her out in 1913. For a few years around 1920, Howard was an appraiser for the federal land bank in Springfield, Massachusetts. He visited farms in Washington County with Ozias Pitkin, and together they bought at least two farms which were mortgaged to that bank. One of these farms was the Edwin Pitkin farm in Marshfield where Howard cut and sold hay for one or two years. Over the years, on several occasions Howard bought farms, held them for a year or two while harvesting the crops and making small improvements, and then sold them, sometimes at a profit. The Bolton farm in Cabot village, the Pitkin Farm, the Frank Marshall farm (Frank was Howard's brother in law), the farm which was later owned by Max Ducharme, and the Fred Robinson farm were some of his projects. About 1919, Howard was a founding member of the Cabot Farmer's Co-operative Creamery. By that time, Howard had shifted to Cabot village as his place of business for a number of reasons, and he was a very active and social member of that community. He served as town moderator for a few years, as selectman, and also as a director of the creamery. He represented Cabot in the state legislature in 1921. The years after Lillian died were very difficult for Howard. The depression was at its worst, the farm was mortgaged and not generating enough cash to make the payments and Howard had no family living at home with him. Charles moved to the village for a time to work in the Roger's store. George was trying to make a living on a farm in Lower Cabot. Clara had her own family in Cabot with Edwin Smith, and Flora was living and teaching school in Waterbury. For several winters Howard cut and delivered firewood every day between chores. He usually had hired help working in the woods, but often while drawing wood he was alone. His journal entries during that period make special note of any time spent with his children. Finally Charles was able to return to the farm and Flora, in what she considered to be an extreme sacrifice, also returned home to keep house for them. Howard kept two teams of draft horses for many years, and in addition to farmwork, he used them for rolling the town roads in the winter. He was fond of brook fishing, and would sometimes go down to the brook early in the morning to catch a breakfast of small trout which he would fry in butter and eat whole (according to Elliot Houghton who worked and lived at the farm as a hired man for several winters). He kept a can of chocolate syrup in the milkhouse, and sometimes treated Pete Tobias to a cold milkshake after a hot day of haying. He also was fond of butter, and would sometimes eat it plain. Parents: George Nathan CARPENTER and Adelia S. PERRY.
