3X Great Grandmothers July 29, 2015

One of my Great Great Great Grandmothers, Sally Foot, was born in MIddlebury Vermont – where I went to college   I attended 1954-1958.  Sally was  born in 1784, 170 years before I went to Middlebury.  She married a Judge Samuel Murdock from Crown Point New York, only a few miles away as the crow flies.  She had a short life – died in 1815 at age 30 in Crown Point.  She is buried in Bridport Vermont – within cycling distance of Middlebury.
