My name is Anastasia and I'm researching my grandfather's line. My grandfather
(Edward Smith Lasell later LaSalle, of Clinton County NY then Jefferson County NY) said
that we are Abenaki Indian and he mentioned that his grandfather (Marshall Milo Lasell of
St Albans area Franklin VT and Clinton County NY) was
Indian. Any information on the Abenaki connections on these surnames (LASELL & var/
DREW / CLARK / BOND / SHAW / SKINNER / SANBORN / LOVEWELL / TAPLIN ).....VERY MUCH
APPRECIATED. If any of this sounds familiar to you, let me know. Contact me at:
