  • Note:

    ---

    Saint-Armand came into being in 1999 as a result of the merger of St. Armand and Philipsburg. Located northeast of Lake Champlain bordering Missisquoi Bay, the hamlet of Philipsburg is the oldest populated site in the region (1784). In 1788, George Titemore, from the State of New York, settled in the area. Pigeon Hill was first known as Sagerfield, but was renamed due to the impressive number of pigeons found there. Officially formed in 1855, attestations date back to 1834 under the name of Saint Armand West. Dutch-American families from Duchess County in New York State populated this area. The Hogel (Hogle) side of our Clark line, the mother of William James Clark and wife of Orange Smith Clark, was Dutch-American. Her name was Georgiana Glorain Hogel.

    Page 313

    "The first permanent settlement made in St. Armand was in the autumn of 1784."

    The Rev R. Whitwell was the first rector of St. Armand West. He served from 1826 to 1855.

    Rev. C.C. Cotton, Church of England (Anglican Church), began keeping records for Missisquoi Co, Quebec, Canada in about 1804 and continued for about 4 years.

    In 1808, the Rev. Dr. Stewart replaced Rev. Cotton and continued until 1815.

    In 1811 a chruch was rected about one mile north-east of Missisquoi Bay to accomodate the settlement of St. Armand.

    In 1815 Rev. Mr. Reid replaced Rev. Dr. Stewart and continued until about 1826 when Rev. Richard Whitwell was appointed rector of the parish in St. Armand West.

    The Rev. Richard Whitwell continued until 1855 when he was replaced by Rev. C.A. Wetherall and then two years later by Rev. H. Montgomery.

  • Event: Moves from St. Armand West (occupation farmer) to Dunham (occupation miller) Moves Abt 1839 Dunham Twp, Missisquoi County, Quebec, Canada
  • Note:

    ---

    In about 1839, Orange Smith Clark moves from St. Armand West in Missisquoi County, where he was a farmer, to Dunham Township in Missisquoi County, where he becomes a miller. He most likely worked for Zebulon Cornell at his red brick gristmill along the Pike River. The Missisquoi Museum is currently in this gristmill. A gristmill, also known as a flourmill, is a building where grain is ground into flour. Gristmills near a river make use of a water wheel for power to grind the grain into flour.

    About Caleb Rogers Tree

    In 1797, several years after the American Revolution, Loyalists Nathan Andrews and Captain Caleb Tree (from New Hampshire) arrived in Canada and built a grain mill next to the Rivière des Brochets (Pike River) in the village of Stanbridge East. Captain Tree was an associate of Hugh Finlay in the township of Stanbridge and eventually became a prominent historical figure for the town. Caleb R. Tree was his son.
