¹ Please contact me if you know anything of these people, especially how they relate to the Betterley family. Perhaps some were in-laws, but many were probably neighbors.

Directions: From Depot Rd in north, a little south of Newfane off Rte-30. Or from Rte-9 in south, west of West Brattleboro. Take Sunset Lake Rd to Stickney Brook Rd to Betterly Rd, which turns into Lost Mile Rd and then Hill Rd after the cemetery and winds back down to Rte-30. These are one-lane, dirt roads.
