Research Notes

Protestants living in the Eastern Townships of Quebec were often married in the United States. Along the Vermont-New Hampshire-Quebec border, the closest town issuing authority was in Canaan, Vermont, however several churches were across the river in nearby New Hampshire. As indicated on one of the Vermont Records, the marriage between Thomas and Hannah took place in New Hampshire.
