Lamphere Family: 1926

Lamphere Family: 1926

This is a picture of my family in Swanton, Vermont circa 1926 shortly before they moved to Underhill, Vermont. From left to right top is Nellie Boss Lamphere, then Mary her sister and Frank Lamphere.

Nellie and Frank were my grandparents. At the bottom is, again from left to right, my Uncle Lynford, with the little girl (my mother) Lynette Lamphere being held by my maternal great-grandmother Marceline Bourgeois. The little boy on the far right is Fayette Lamphere who tragically died in World War II.

My grandmother Nellie changed her name from Bourgeois to Boss when she moved from Québec to Vermont. My grandmother Nellie and her sister Mary were members of the Abenaki Indian Nation in Swanton.
