I am looking for any info on Joseph Melcher (b. <1780) and Joseph Hancock (1780-1847).
Joseph Melcher was the father of Sally/Sarah Melcher (1794-1823) who married Joseph Hancock.
This couple had John Melcher Hancock (1820-1893) who married Eliza French Goss.
The latter couple resided in St. Johnsbury in 1860-70 or longer.
They had Ellen Sophia Hancock (b. in St. Johnsbury in 1860 and d. in Northampton, MA 1917)
who married, as his 2nd wife, Lewis F. Babbitt (1850-c1919) of Greensboro.
Lewis Babbitt was the nephew/. gr. nephew of Henry and Ancil Babbitt of St. Johnsbury.
These families (Melcher, Hancock, Goss, Babbitt) lived in Hardwick, East Hardwick,
Greensboro, St. Johnsbury, and maybe Craftsbury.
