The family names above which appeared in Swanton, Franklin County, Vermont, are claimed by John Moody, a historian and Abenaki genealogist, to be Abenaki Indian, either directly as Missisquoi-Odenak Abenaki or "French, English Irish, Dutch and other European names associated with Vermont Abenakis and now considered Abenaki by intermarriage."
I've been told that John Moody is no longer doing genealogy.
Hope this helps,
I just saw your list of abenaki surnames. I am like many others researching my indian ancestry. The name on the list that most interests me is Proulx. Is there a way to find out the full names of the Proulx family. My grgrgrgrandmother, Mary Ann Power Proulx was married to a Freeman Curtis and supposedly lived in the Brandon,Vt area. They had a daughter, Philomene Curtis, who was born abt. 1846 or 1851 in Brandon,Vt. For some strange reason, I can not find any records for Mary Proulx, her husband Freeman or a record of birth for their daughter, Philomene Curtis. I was able to find a marriage record for Philomene to a Peter Tatro (Pierre Tetreau). This record shows the parents names as I have listed above, and place of birth for Philomene is Brandon,Vt. I would like to be able to find out more about Mary and Freeman. I don't know where else to look. I already requested a vital record search and contacted the Brandon City Clerk's office, but they could not find any record of this family. Would there have been another place that indian births and marriages would have been recorded? Do the abenaki keep old records somewhere?Any advise you can give will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Sandy
