When Tapirgal realized her ancestors once lived in my neck of the woods,
she spoke about trying to find the old homestead.
I accepted the challenge and went prowling up the West River Valley to Townshend.
Above is the site where I believe Tapirgal's family once endured the long Vermont winters.
This garage/shed sits, I believe, where once there was a farmhouse
belonging to W. Joy (Tapirgal's ancestor)
It's possible this house might have been the one in Tapirgal's family
but using her directions and a map of our own
our best guess is that her family worked and played
in a house that once stood at the site of that red garage on the left.
I'll be out of town for a couple of days.
See you all soon.
