I wanted to share a piece of information on the family of
Leuman Gee, who I know originated in Marlow, NH. A
probate record in Essex Co, VT lists Leuman as dying
in Lunenberg in 1805. His wife Cate signed the final
decree along with Christopher, Luman Jr. and a John
Everett. Mentioned in the estate are: Cate, Solomon,
Hope this is of some help to other seekers,
I don't know what you aleady have
and what you do not, but I should also point out that the
research of Grace Pittman and Dick Newman has
turned up circumstantial evidence that Cate Bruce Gee
was the daughter of Timothy and Susannah (Joslin)
Bruce of Bolton/Marlborough Mass.
Doing separate work of my own on a Patty Bruce who
was married to Timothy Fisher of Croydon, I came up
with similar pieces of information pointing to the family
of Timothy and Susannah Bruce. Then a few years
ago, I came across an entry in the minutes of a family
reunion in Vermont with strong evidence that my Patty
and Cate Bruce Gee were sisters.
This information can be found on the CD published a
couple years ago by the Pittman/Newman researchers
entitled Some Descendants of George Bruce of
Woburn, Mass. (also, digitized on the Family History
Archives on the internet). More on Patty and Timothy
Fisher's family will hopefully be published in my entry in
volume 3 of Vermont Families 1791, currently in the
process of being edited.
Here's a bit more that I came across in searching
Lunenberg VT over the last couple of years. Since
there is more than one Luman and more than one
Solomon, all of these relationships have not been
sorted out. I do think, however, that the names of the
family members of Luman and Cate indicate that that
probate record is very likely for Leuman Gee who md
Here's the other data:
There is a marriage on record in Vermont for a
Solomon Gee and Sally Ann Hutchinson, md 20 May
1840 in Concord VT. In 1870 there is a Solomon in
Concord age 53 and this one in Ripton VT age 86.
Early on in the Lunenberg/Concord area of VT (1780's)
Luman and Christopher Gee are shown owning land;
in 1830 Solomon Gee is listed there, but not in 1840. In
1850 both in Lunenberg and Ripton there is a
Solomon, in 1860 in Concord but not in Ripton.
My initial take on this is that the two Solomons here
may be father and son. The elder is probably the son of
Leuman, whom I know died in Ripton VT in 1870. The
younger may be his son or that of one of his brothers.
Concord is not far from Lunenberg; Ripton is quite a
From what I had found previously, Solomon son of
Leuman and Cate, probably married first a Rachel
Hartshorn, second a Mary Wadley (possibly of Canada)
and late in life he was definitely married in Ripton to
Martha Fisher Spooner, widow.
Hello Ms. Foster,
I attempted to register on the MHS website and I received the error message that my email address had been banned!? I've never posted anything on the website so I have no idea why the address would be banned. The email address that I'm using for this email is the email address that is banned.
My reason for wanting post is related to the post on Leuman Gee from July 13, 2008. I started corresponding with a number ladies about my research on Leuman Gee in mid-July. I had discovered the probate record for Leuman Gee last year along with deeds. I reluctantly shared my the info. with the stipulation that credit was given to those who had done the research. I find it VERY interesting and unlikely coincidental that just after I share that information, the information is posted on your website.
I have shared information before on different lines of my family and they to ignored my request for proper acknowledgment to the researcher. This is why I'm generally not inclined to share research.
If there is a way for you to insert this email onto the MHS website I would appreciate it. If you could also advise why my email address was blocked I would appreciate that as well.
