Frances Chamberlin Barnum fonds
- CA ETRC P090
The fonds contains source material on the property, financial, and estate-related transactions of Frances Chamberlin Barnum's family and the Reynold, Kemp, and Westover families (related by marriage) in Missisquoi County in the 19th and early 20th centuries. It is also of value as a source of information on the day-to-day activities of Towner Westover of East Dunham and the Methodist East Dunham Sunday School in the 1880s. It consists almost wholly of deeds (deeds of sale, mortgages, wills, estates, gifts, leases, and so on) notarized by members of the Chamberlin, Reynolds, Kemp, and Westover families but also includes a diary and account book. Elijah Kemp, a merchant in the seigneury of Saint-Armand; Orin J. Kemp of Frelighsburg; Joshua Chamberlin, a physician in the seigneury of Saint-Armand; and David Westover, an East Dunham land owner, are among the family members represented. The fonds is comprised of the following series: Kemp family (1812-1875), Chamberlin family (1840-1919), Reynolds family (1846-1894), Westover family (1880-1908), and Miscellaneous Documents ([1818?]-1878).
