Additions to Note *1302.. "Shawshin," June 6, 1910. I think most of the Transcript readers are aware of the difficulty in getting records in Vermont, and all who can add anything to the scanty records available of that State should send them in. The probate and land Index lists which are occasionally printed in the Transcript are of great help and it may be the following list of the Freemen of Pownal, VT, may help locate some long-sought ancestor. This list appears on the first page of the town record, and was deciphered with great difficulty, and in a short time will be entirely illegible. Some of the names were only deciphered by the aid of the land records. These men are mostly from Rhode Island, a few were from Connecticut, and almost all served In the Revolution. Many of them are of families already traced by me, and their lines can be furnished to anyone Interested.
