bullet Belmont Royce PITKIN Photo was born on 8 Jan 1929 in Burlington, Vermont. He died on 16 Feb 2004 in Burlington, Vermont. Belmont died of complications after a kidney transplant. Belmont attended public schools in Barre and Plainfield, and attended Goddard College where he received his BA in 1952. For many of his school years he worked in partnership with his father and his brother, Ronald, raising potatoes and producing maple syrup.
During his years at Goddard, Belmont was a maintenance worker at the college, a woodshop and cabin counselor at Camp Rainbow at Croton-on Hudson, NY and at Camp Killooleet in Hancock, Vermont. One summer he worked as a free-lance photographer, and the next winter was a copy boy for Time, Inc in NYC. He taught American History and Industrial Arts at the Marshfield High School. One winter he was a deckhand, pilot, navigator, cook, and secretary on the yacht, Toombah II in Florida. Another winter he was a social work intern and nursery school teacher in Milwaukee.
Belmont married Clotilde Dorman, a fellow Goddard student, on June 25, 1952. They lived in Cobleskill, NY for a few years where he worked for the Soil Conservation Service. They later moved to Hartford where he was an assistant town planner. After completing graduate studies at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, he worked for the Conservation Foundation in New York.
The family returned to Marshfield in 1961 where Belmont taught at Goddard in the field of natural resource management. As faculty for the Goddard College North to Alaska Ecology Project, he worked with Bob Jervis to organize and conduct two extensive expeditions to study the ecology of the western states and Alaska. For about ten years Belmont was a soil conservation specialist with the Johnson Company in Montpelier, and recently was an operator of the Winooski Hydroelectric plant in East Montpelier.
For a short time, he was an advisor to Governor Philip Hoff on conservation matters, and was appointed by Hoff to the Public Land Law Review Commission. Belmont served the local communities as Chief of the Goddard Fire Department, member of the Marshfield Fire Department, member of regional and local planning commissions, trustee of the Jaquith Public Library, and as clerk of the Twinfield Union School District. He was responsible for much of the legal and organizational work involved in the establishment of the Capitol Fire Mutual Aid System, and served as a director of that organization. As an Emergency Medical Technician he provided CPR training to a number of local groups. During the 1980's he offered workshops, training, and advice on the installation and use of wood burning stoves and furnaces.
Belmont's recreational activities and hobbies included traveling, bicycling, beekeeping, raising potatoes, sugaring, improving his woodlot, and maintaining a small fleet of Land Rovers, other vehicles and equipment. He was a devoted steward of his farm and family, an avid reader, story teller, and inventive problem solver.

bullet Bessie E. PITKIN was born on 13 May 1885. a 1908 city directory of Barre, VT lists Miss Bessie Pitkin, sales lady at 188 N. Main, boarding with her mother, Leona Pitkin, cook, at 37 Jefferson St. By 1909 they had moved to 21 Church St. on the common. By 1914, they were back at 37 Jefferson.

A 1915 census of Providence, RI lists a Bessie E. Pitkin, 26, a hospital nurse.

On May 28, 1918 a Bessie E. Pitkin married Frank J. Nutting in Rhode Island.

The 1920 census of Barre, Vt, lists Bessie, 33, single woman, as a trained nurse living in the household of her mother, Leona, 58, a rooming house keeper.

The 1930 census of Providence, RI, lists a Bessie E. Pitkin, divorced, aged 40, born in Vermont, trained nurse, lodging with the family of Roy Stimpson on Wayland Ave. The age is inconsistent, and if divorced, Pitkin would likely not have been her maiden name, but this is possibly the same person.

The 1940 census of Providence also lists a Bessie E. Pitkin, aged 54, marital status single, private duty nurse, lodging in the household of Jean M. Frame, a 34 year old hospital nurse. This 1940 census is a much closer match. Perhaps there were errors in the 1930 census.

In 1947, a Bessie E. (Pitkin) Pitkin died in Norwood MA. Parents: William Webster PITKIN and Lona May Kiser.

By's Runner

Yes, that mass of rusty iron standing by the station gate
Brings a message and a lesson from some long forgotten date.
Some old man perhaps will tell you of a mill among the trees
Where today a mossy stone heap is the only thing he sees.
There the big and burly Byron with his beard of flaming red
Stood beside his hopper, that the bending orchards fed.
From his press the golden cider in a tide untrammeled flowed
Down the necks of thirsty neighbors far along the Danville road.
But his pitcher has been busted now full many a thirsty day
And his barrel staves have mingled with the dust of long decay.
Now the Molly Falls that roared is a dry and silent ledge
With the softly rustling alders leaning over at its edge;
For a new and different master labors now the mountain stream
In a living realization of Young Beckley's wildest dream.
So the young forget the ancient as they almost always do
And to cheer a thirsty neighbor there is only three point two.
- F.M. Eastman Parents: Orsamus Cassius Merrill PITKIN and Chestina B. English .

bullet Caleb PITKIN was born on 19 Aug 1687 in Hartford, Connecticut. He died on 16 Jan 1773 in East Hartford, Connecticut. He was buried in East Hartford, Connecticut. Caleb served as fence viewer in 1708 and as selectman in Hartford in 1726 and 1738. As Caleb's name does not appear in any of the mercantile histories of Hartford, it is likely that he was a farmer. In 1713, Caleb was deeded five tracts of land by his father, totaling over 250 acres. Three years later, his father deeded two more tracts "in consideration of my son marrying to my good satisfaction." Caleb was also assigned land by his father from his sister Rachel's inheritance, for which Caleb compensated her 12 pounds. These tracts of land may have been in the vicinity where the homes of his sons, Joshua and Nathaniel were later built. Parents: Roger Pitkin and Hannah Stanley.

He was married to Dorothy HILLS in 1716 in East Hartford, Connecticut. Caleb married second, Deborah _____. Children were: Dorothy PITKIN, Mary PITKIN, Thankful Pitkin, Sarah Pitkin, Ensign Caleb PITKIN, Nathaniel PITKIN, Hannah PITKIN, Joshua PITKIN, Jerusha PITKIN.

He was married to Damaris Porter . Children were: Caleb PITKIN, Stephen PITKIN, Dorothy PITKIN, Damaris PITKIN, John PITKIN, Hannah PITKIN, Timothy PITKIN.


bullet Caleb PITKIN was born on 3 Dec 1768 in East Hartford, Connecticut. This birthdate, December 3, 1768 may be incorrect. The baptism recorded in the East Hartford Congregational Church on December 4, 1768 was for "Caleb, son of Caleb, Jr." If correct, this would be the date of baptism of Caleb's cousin. He died on 16 Apr 1813 in Marshfield, Vermont. He was buried in Eaton Cemetery, Marshfield, Vermont. Caleb Pitkin first came to Marshfield, Vermont in the summer of 1790 as a member of the surveying company of General James Whitelaw. The purpose of the survey was to lay out the lot lines of Marshfield, and the company returned in 1791 to finish the job. Caleb may have served as a cook for the company. During the following summers of 1792 and 1793, Caleb returned to Marshfield with his brother Martin, and Gideon Spencer to clear land for settlement. In December of 1793, Caleb married Hannah Marsh, the sister of Polly Marsh, Gideon's wife. They were the daughters of Daniel Marsh, Caleb's step-father, who had extensive holdings in Marshfield. In February of 1794, the two families arrived in Marshfield with the family of Aaron Elmer, also of East Hartford. They made the last leg of the move from Montpelier through snow four feet deep, and carried their belongings on hand sleds. There was no road to Marshfield at the time. Sherman Gilman had settled in town a few months earlier, and these four families were the first permanent residents of Marshfield. In a 1796 petition to the Vermont Legislature, Caleb signed his name as the owner of 2320 acres in Marshfield.
Caleb was perhaps the first sugarmaker in town. He carried a five-pail kettle home from Montpelier on his back, the first kettle in Marshfield. To hold his maple sugar, Caleb made a box out of birch bark which held 200 pounds. He also brought to town the first cow, driven through the woods 34 miles from Newbury. The cow lived on wheat in the stook during its second winter. She was a good milker, as remembered by Caleb's son James. Caleb and his brother Stephen each raised a barn on June 26, 1797. After Caleb built a frame house, his log house was sometimes used as a school until 1812, when a schoolhouse was finally built. Caleb's log house burned sometime after 1827.
At the first town meeting in 1800, Caleb was elected town treasurer, sealer of weights and measures, and auditor of accounts. The following year, he moderated the town meeting, and was elected selectman.
Hannah Pitkin (Mrs. Stephen Pitkin, Jr.) wrote of him; "He was rather retiring in his manners, but had a vein of pleasantry which made him agreeable company, and he had a good education for the times. He was a good reader, and often when no minister was present, read the Sunday sermon. His trade was a mason, and the original stone chimneys of the first dwellings were laid by him. His wife was social, and a worker. He removed to Peacham a few years before his death... at the age of 40. His widow returned to Marshfield, and lived some years after the decease of her husband."
According to the account book of his brother Martin, Caleb moved his household to Peacham, Vermont in 1808, and the census of 1810 shows that he lived there in a household of five persons (his entire family). Whether the Marshfield farm was sold is still a matter to be researched, but it is certain that Caleb's son James later lived there, and that when the house was later purchased by James Cassidy, there were numerous Pitkin papers found in the attic, which papers the Cassidys subsequently destroyed (related to Caleb W. Pitkin by Mrs. James Cassidy). Parents: Joshua PITKIN and Anna STANLEY.

He was married to Hannah Marsh on 12 Dec 1793 in Hartford, Connecticut. Children were: James PITKIN, Susan PITKIN, Ashbel Stanley PITKIN.

Caleb grew up in Marshfield, and attended the University of Vermont and Goddard College, where he received his B.A. in 1980. He moved to Cambridge, Mass. with Mary until 1982. They then lived for a year at the Tobias house in Cabot, and operated Hillcrest Nursery together with Mary's mother and sister. In August, 1983, they moved to the Carpenter farm in Cabot, and in October began dairying there, shipping their milk to the Cabot Farmers Co-operative Creamery and later to the Organic Cow, in Chelsea. They began sugaring in 1985, built a new sugarhouse in 1989. Sold the cows in 1999, after which Caleb supplemented his farm income as a builder.
Served the town of Cabot as UDAG (revolving loan fund) board member, local and regional planning commissioner, State Representative, Selectboard chairman, director of Twin Valley Senior Center, and Justice of the Peace.

bullet Calistria Lynn PITKIN Photo was born on 8 Nov 1959 in Peekskill, New York. Clisty grew up mostly in West Chester, Pennsylvania where she graduated from Henderson High School in 1978. She then attended Bloomsburg State College in Northeastern Pa. for a BA in social work in 1982. After college she stayed in the Bloomsburg area working in restaurants as a waitress and mixologist, and found that there wasn't much money in social work "and too many headaches." She married Jeffry Robert Brown on July 21, 1984. Jeff was born on Sep 5 1952 in Elizabeth, New Jersey. He was fond of playing the guitar in local night clubs. They divorced in 1990, their son Alex remaining with Clisty. She had another child in September 1991 with Steven Harlowe Stryker ("Strike"), who she married on Nov 23 1991. Strike was born on May 7 1954 in Bath, New York. He had a son Steven "Jamie" Stryker (born April 3, 1974), who resided in Bath. Clisty wrote in 1994: "(Strike) is a die-hard Harley Davidson enthusiast and now I've become one too! At present he is a millwright pipefitter for a local contractor. They do mostly industrial work. He is one of those mechanically inclined people who can fix anything. Between the boys and our many projects, time seems to fly by. This past year we purchased the house we had been renting. It was built at the turn of the century and needs much work. New plumbing, rewiring and remodeling has kept us very busy. We both enjoy gardening. We're quite proud of our home-grown vegetables, herbs and flowers. We've also been freezing and canning as much as possible. You have to do what you can in this day and age. In my 'spare time' I enjoy my crafts. These include needlework, macrame, corking on lawn chairs, printing on clothing and making beaded jewelry. Someday I hope to open a little shop. We all love to go tent camping and treasure hunting at auctions and yard sales. We have refinished some bargains into beautiful pieces. Our music preference includes good ol' rock-n-roll, country and bluegrass. We have 2 guitars and a mandolin which we pick at but haven't perfected yet. That's on the "someday" list. We also have a 10 year old pit bull named Spike. He looks just like the dog from "Spanky and Our Gang" with one black eye. He's a very important member of our family. Our dream is to fix this place up to sell and eventually live on a farm in the country." Parents: Donald Herridge PITKIN and Patricia Caldwell.
