I am responding to a query of 11/30/01 re: Mary Lamphear, d/o an "Asa"
Lamphear. I have already sent a message to the individual and find she
stills needs information. I wanted to share it with everyone who may find it
useful. The Asa's below appear to meet the requirements of the family being
Asa Lanfear (?of John), b. ca 1786; d. 1831, Dorset, VT; m. Mary Betsey
Whitehouse (1782-1856. They resided in Dorset, VT. surname spelling in
documents is "Lanfear".
Ch: Mary Ann, b. ca 1810
Louisa, b. ca 1814
Asa, 2 Feb 1815
Rosetta, b. ca 1818
Mary, b. ca 1822 (either the 1st Mary died or one of the Marys is
John, b. ca 1824
William Henry, b. ca 1828
Asa Lanfear (of Asa, ?John), 2 Feb 1815; d. 1890, Dorset, Vt; m. Ruth
uisa Lanfear, b. 12 --?-- 1838/39, M. James Edwin Woods; d. 1933
Mary, b. 1840/41, Dorset, Vt; m. George Phillips of Danby, VT on 6
Sep 1857 by justice of peace in Granville, NY (per vital records of VT). Mary
was age 16.
Rosetta, 4 Feb 1845, Dorset, Vt; m. James W. Frost
?John Lanfear, 25 Ap 1856
?William Asa Lanfear, Jul 1862
?Silas, 14 Nov 1865
(the date spread on birthdates make all the children in one family
questionable in my mind).
Sources: Asa Lanfear's Estate record (filmed on LDS film # 27967) book 14
(1832-1834) pp 15,17,42,53,233 and 276; Manchester District probate court,
Bennington county, Vt . The items refer mostly to "Mary Lanfear, Widow of Asa
Lanfear late of Dorset deceased." The probate appears to have started on 7
Feb 1832. No will located.
Vital Records of Vermont--the alphabetically listing of births, deaths, and
marriages. (LDS film #27609) lists the marriage of Mary to George Phillips
and gives her age.
The periodical, "Berkshire Genealogist" (printed in Pittsfield, MA) that
lists ancestor tables sent in by various researchers. Thelma Sykes Owens of
Lanesboro, MA sent in a table showing the two Asa's and who they married.
Years of death are based on that table. The table includes Louisa "Landfear"
the oldest of Asa(junior)'s children. If I read this table correctly, she
married James Edwin Woods (1833-1907) and they remained living in VT.
I also pieced some of the children's names to these families from IGI as
well as the possible father of Asa (senior) as being John Lanfear.
I could not locate all my notes--I suspect there is another source for
children's names although it may all be VT vital records.
Good luck, Jen, with your trip.
There is no direct relationship between Robert who recently passed away and
your Robert Lamphere. (Robert Lamphere b. 1823 in Bucksport, Maine and died
1856 in Sangerville, ME.)
Bob whose father was Joseph Sherman son of George Nathan Sr., son of David
and Mary Ann Lanphere from Old Mystic, CT. They are all from the John
Lanphere decendency of George Landphear(1660's).
Bob's father and my great grandfather Charles, were brothers. Bob was born
in/or around Kellogg, ID which is in the northern part of the state in the
mining district. At the time his grandparents lived in Palouse, WA which is
just south of Spokane, and next to Moscow, ID.

I don't know how may of you saw this.It happened
nearly 2 months ago,but appeared in my paper this
ROBERT LAMPHERE 83, former F.B.I.
counter-intelligence specialist in Scottsdale,AZ.
He was a member of a group responsible for
cracking the Russian coded messages during the
cold war era. Enabling the eventual unmasking of
spies Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. They were later
proven guilty of passing atomic secrets to the
Russians and executed in 1953.
