VILLAGE IN THE HILLS
A History of Danville, Vermont 1786-1995
by Susannah Clifford
Published for the DANVILLE HSTORY COMMITTEE by Phoenix Publishing, West Kennebunk, Maine
Excerpt: Page 12 - (Re: the forty-nine settlers, since the granting of the first charter, have possessed and enjoyed their present improvements and have made very large and valuable Farms and improvements on their Several Settlements & do now constitute a very considerable part of the landed interest in said town. The proprietors, moreover, caused various pretneded proprietors meetings to be held. They excluded the settler from voting, and there was "no legal record of the same in any of the proprietor's proceedings, nor in factis there one tract or Vestige left in said proceediings,which can be admitted as evidence in a court of law - as they consist wholly in scraps and are generally destitute of any Official Signature.:
The counterpetition concludes with a request that a fair charter be drawn up in such a way that "each honest land holder may be quieted in each particular tract which we do now severally claim posses and enjoy." The signers of this petition include such well-known Danville names as Kittridge, Morrill, Sias, BATCHELDER, and Harris, the founding families of the town.
Page 13 - The lack of inquiry is particulary unusual because it is the settlers' families, by and large, rather than the proprietors, who built and shaped the town and whose names - Morrill, BATCHELDER, Magoon, Carr and Hoyt - remain familiar within the community today or within recent memory.
Page 26-27 - THE FIRST TOWN MEETING. In 1788 there were enough settlers to organize the town, and in March of that year the settlers were warned to meet at the dwelling house of Daniel Wheeler for their first official town meeting. the meeting was held as warned at Wheeler's log house, which was more or less in the center of town on Dole Hill. One of the first tasks at the meeting was to elect town officials. The election results were as follows:
DANIEL BATCHELDER and ABNER MORRILL, haywards. etc.
Page 34 - THE FIRST SCHOOLS
Danville was first divided into school districts at the march meeting of 1790, when five school trustees were chosen: David Hardy, David Dunbar, Charles Sias, DANIEL BATCHELDER, and Solomon Daniels.
Page 28 - In 1790 the freemen of Danville voted to give DANIEL BATCHELDER "ten bushels and a half of merchantable wheat for Clearing and Fencing one helf acre of land north of the Meeting House and on what is called the meetinghouse acre - said fence to be 4 logs high and to make a good Deacent gate - to be done by the first day of July next."
