The Fessendens of Barre, MA Updated August 24, 2003
About Our Family Research
Most of the early Fessenden information comes from the Fessenden Genealogy. Other data was accumulated from vital records, family information, census, and other online genealogies of various branches.
It is still incredible to me to think that Peter Fessenden came to Barre before 1760 and helped to settle that town. I lived in Barre from my fourth grade school year through graduation from high school. My mother and brother still reside in the area, along with an uncle and cousins.
Our immigrant ancestor, Nicholas Fessenden, my 7th great grandfather, was married to Margaret Cheney. Margaret was an ancestor of our current Vice President.
