...information on western settlement...

The Harvard commission on western history has added several important items to the Cambridge collection within recent months.  The Beaman account books and papers, from Poultney, Vermont, 1820-1850, consist of several thousand documents; they contain information on western settlement, especially concerning Vermontville, Michigan.(2)

Wait Squier (my grandkids' ancestor) was one of the founders of Vermontville; was he mentioned in the Beaman books?
