Tamblings in Massachusetts, Vermont, New York
I have old letters from an Aunt Mary Tambling, born about 1837, probably in Stockholm, St. Lawrence, NY.
Mary was the daughter of PHILIP P. TAMBLING and Harriet Smith (daughter of Salah Smith and Mary Taylor, early settlers of Waitsfield, Vermont).
In "History of Waitsfield, Vermont" by Matt Bushnell Jones, 1909, Philip Tambling married Harriet Smith, children listed were:Mary, Corydon and Cyrus
We have letters which link Mary to Waitsfield, Vermont and to Stockholm, St. Lawrence Co., New York, where Philip and Harriet settled.
Mary apparently never married.It appears that CYREN TAMBLING, her brother married Eliza and may have had a son Lindon R. Tambling, perhaps called Ray, who lived in Boston in early 1900s and had a wife and daughter.
Corydon apparently married and MAY HAVE had children named Charles, Carrie, Jennie and William.
I am guessing at these relationships at this time, trying to make families out of people mentioned in Mary's letters.
I AM GUESSING!!! that Philip Tambling (father of our Mary) may have been the son of Lemuel Tambling who went to NY from Addison County, Vt.Lemuel's father MAY HAVE BEEN Stephen Tambling, a documented Revolutionary War vet who is buried in Cornwall, Addison Co., Vermont.
Since the census lists several male Tamblings living close together in St. Lawrence County, New York, I AM GUESSING that they may be brothers, since they are near in age.
Our Philip MAY BE the brother of Stephen A. and Elijah of Norfolk, St. Lawrence County. And I am sure Philip was the brother of Judson Tambling, because our Mary refers to an uncle Judson.
This family is being neglected!Won't someone help me put it back together?
Our Mary Tambling apparently lived next door to the Alexis Bates family in Stockholm and calls herself "Aunt" to Alexis' son, Jonathon A. Bates, gggranfather to my husband.
