  • Notes 
    • Sam and Lois lived in Sherburne for some time before living in Cavendish. They lived on the Reuben Rist farm - the very first place on the road to Reading on the Reading/Cavendish line, which was the second place beyond the 'Bigelow farm' towards Cavendish. It was known as Rist Hill [Alverson Hill in Cavendish] in Reading, VT. It appears that Reuben Sr. deeded the farm to Reuben Jr. However, a judgement against Reuben Jr. put the farm up for sale. To settle the debt Samuel Rist bailed out his brother and saved the farm.

      [Sherburne - June 12, 1885] "Samuel Rist and wife visited his brother-in-law Ira P. Shaw and other connections and friends here, last week. Mr. Rist, now of Cavendish, formerly resided in this town."

      On Dec. 28, 1889 Sam and Lois celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. [from the VT Tribune, April 45, 1900, at Proctorville] "Wallace Shaw, who was sick with typhoid fever, died last Friday (30th March, 1900). His remains were taken Sunday to Sherburne for burial" This was Lois' brother.

      Samuel Rist died at Cavendish, at the home of his son Wallace, on Sunday, March 27, 1897, age 88. From his obituary, "He leaves an aged wife to mourn his loss. His remains were taken to the Twenty Mile Stream for burial." Lois died in Cavendish Nov. 4, 1902.

      - all the above per Bill Zullo.
