In the elder George’s house, 2 males 10 to 16, 1 male 16 to 26, 1 male 26
to 45, 1 female under 10, 1 2 females 16 to 26, 1 female 26 to 45, 1 45
and up.

The 2 males 10 to 16 are Lorenzo and Thomas, the 1 male 16 to 26 is
unknown (George living in the next household), the 26 to 45 male is
perhaps George placed in the wrong column except that there is also a 26
to 45 year old female in the household who could be the wife of this male
(there is no male listed 45 and over); the female under 10 is unknown,
the two females 15 to 26 would be Rachel and Sarah, the female 26 to 45
is unknown, the female over 45 would be Sarah.

In the younger George’s house, 1 male 16 to 26, 1 female under 10, 1
female 16 to 26

Olive ATWELL, daughter of Nathaniel ATWELL and Lydia HUNKINS, and sister
of Hiram who married Rachel SCAGEL, married a Clark FISK. It would be
interesting to know if he was related to the FISKS living near the
SCAGELS in 1820. It’s also to be noted that Thomas Best SCAGEL married
Chloe Fisk DILLINGHAM.

Appears there are several households together. The male and female 60 to
70 would be George and Sarah. The female 90 to 100 would be Rachel Lee
SCAGEL.

17. Religion: Waterbury Methodist church 1833 Waterbury Center,
Washington, Vermont, USA. (11)
Image of Waterbury Center Methodist (Community) Church
credited The Vermont Chamber of Commerce from the National Park
Service page on the Waterbury Center Methodist Church. That page states
that the church at Waterbury Center, a historical landmark, is of rural
Federal architecture, pervasive throughout the early nineteenth century.

The date 1833 is prominently displayed in a wooden fan adorning the
gable end high above the entrance. In addition to this date mark, the
church offers many other architectural clues confirming that the building
was constructed at the end of the Federal period. Some of the features
that distinguish it as such are the church’s symmetry, low pitched roof,
simple ornamentation, smooth facade, central entry and brick
construction. The pinkish bricks were locally manufactured, likely from a
brickyard near the Mill Village Historic District. The bell, located in
the two-tiered wooden tower, was cast in Troy, New York, in 1836. In
1858, the interior was remodeled, at which time the present pews were
installed and a second floor was built, now the sanctuary. Stained-glass
windows from 1894 decorate each side of the second floor.

The bell, given here as crafted in 1836, conflicts with the story that in
1833 the church bell was rung 100 times for Rachel Lee Scagel’s 100th
birthday. The bell, however, was minted in 1836 and that is the year
Rachel died. Perhaps instead of being rung 100 times for her birthday,
it was rung 103 times at her death. Just a thought.

The church is located on Rt. 100 in the heart of Waterbury Center.

The 2 males 10 to 16 are Lorenzo and Thomas, the 1 male 16 to 26 is
unknown (George living in the next household), the 26 to 45 male is
perhaps George placed in the wrong column except that there is also a 26
to 45 year old female in the household who could be the wife of this male
(there is no male listed 45 and over); the female under 10 is unknown,
the two females 15 to 26 would be Rachel and Sarah, the female 26 to 45
is unknown, the female over 45 would be Sarah.

In the younger George’s house, 1 male 16 to 26, 1 female under 10, 1
female 16 to 26

Olive ATWELL, daughter of Nathaniel ATWELL and Lydia HUNKINS, and sister
of Hiram who married Rachel SCAGEL, married a Clark FISK. It would be
interesting to know if he was related to the FISKS living near the
SCAGELS in 1820.

11. Correspondence Reference: 1876 Nov 21. (29) Sarah Atwell Gilbert
seems to refer to Thomas Best SCAGEL, her uncle, in a letter dated 21
Nov (1876)

“West went to VT this summer went to (unintelligible) at Waterbury took
dinner with Uncle Best – Aunt Chloe is not there any more she died the
last of July with softening of the brain Uncle Best said and that it
was too much for her burying Mary and Emory I never have seen her since
Mary was buried – the girls were there with him keeping home & going to
school West went to the school house to see them said that Dora was
quite slight and stooping but Flora was plump & very pretty. They have a
little old house at the Mill Village.”

A problem is that Thomas Best SCAGEL is given online as dying 23 Aug
1871, and here West was visiting with Uncle Best in 1876, discussing
Chloe’s death and the death of Emory (her son) and a Mary, which means
this was undeniably Thomas Best SCAGEL.

================================================================================
General Notes: Husband – George + Scagel
================================================================================

I don’t have any information on the publication from which the below is taken.
My source is 3 pages xeroxed from The Bryan Family of Waterbury, VT,
courteously provided by Nancy Benton.

The Scagels

Orson Patrick BRYAN, having married Sally, the daughter of George Scagel, the
descendents of this marriage would also be part of the Scagel family. It has
been a long time since anyone with the Scagel surname had lived in Waterbury.
There are Scagel descendents presently living in Morrisville and Richmond. Of
course, the Bryans and Scagels had close family ties. Two of my father’s
brothers and one sister, who died as infants or young children, are buried in
the George Scagel lot in the old Center cemetery.

George Scagel came to Waterbury in 1794. Lewis’ History of Waterbury says p.
30, “George Scagel took up his residence on a center plot in 1794, and spent
his life there. “This was early in Waterbury’s history as a political entity.
The first settler in the area of Waterbury was a Mr. Marsh, who arrived in
1783. Ezra Butler, who is considered to be the first permanent resident in
what was to become the town of Waterbury, arrived in 1785. Note that Georg
Scagel arrived a scant nine years later. The Bryans, thorough the Scagels, are
one of the oldest families in Waterbury to continually reside or own property
and pay taxes in the town. Book 2, Page 123 of the Waterbury Town records
states that George Scagel purchased from Josiah Smith on January 6, 1797, land
in the Center for which he paid $200. This was “the original right of Joseph
Badgley in the township of Waterbury.” A map of the lots assigned to the
original grantors, shows this to be the lot where the brick house, opposite the
Methodist Church, now stands.

George Scagel apparently was a man of considerable substance. The brick house
was originally a farm house built by George Scagel. Even today, it is the most
imposing structure in the Center. We have noted that the community’s first
church services were held in a barn. When the present brick church was built
opposite the Scagel home, it was built on land donated by George Scagel in
accordance with family tradi-

9

tion. Among my mother’s newspaper clippings is an article written about the
church in 1949. This article states, “Land for this church was leased for the
sum of $10 by George Scagel to Chester Lyon, Thomas B. Scagel, and Ira Hudson,
trustees of the church.” Thomas Best Scagel was a son of George Scagel. He
was later the postmaster at Waterbury Street. Apparently the $10 involved was
a good faith token payment for the land. An interesting story involving the
church is that the church bell was pealed 100 times on the 100th birthday of
Rachel Lee Scagel, the mother of George Scagel. She was born in 1733, and so
this event occurred in 1833, shortly after the completion of the church. On
that same day, at 100 years of age, she took a stroll from her son George’s
house in the Center, to her granddaughter Sally Bryan’s house. This would, of
course, be the house on present Route 100, where my father was born forty years
later.

A resume of the movement of the Scagel family to northern Vermont may be of
interest. Jacob Scagel, fourth and last known child of Christopher and Deborah
(Wallis) Scagel, was born at Rye, New Hampshire, October 25, 1736. An entry in
the marriage register of the Congregational Church of Rye for the year 1755
states: “Jan 21 Jacob Scadgel and Rachel Lee were married.” In a record
published by the Hunkins family, in 1961, it states that George Scagel was born
in Maine on October 8, 1765. In the genealogy chart of the Scagel family, his
birthplace is given as Rye, New Hampshire. In the reminisences (sic) written
by Edith Emma Atkins, it states that George Scagel came to Vermont from Saco,
Maine. George Scagel may have been born in Maine, but authenticated
information shows that the family started moving north from Rye, New
Hampshire.

Over the years, there have developed many variations in the spellling of the
Scagel name. In 1766, Jacob “Schagell” was living in Rye, New Hampshire. In
1769, Jacob “Scagel” was employed in building the road from Middleton to
Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. Also, in 1769, Jacob “Sceggel” became a resident of
the latter town. The New Hampshire State Papers report that by 29 January 1770
Jacob “Seageal” had fulfilled the conditions of the deed issued to him in
Wolfeboro. Jacob and Rachel (she who lived to be 103 and died in Waterbury
Center in 1836) lived in Wolfeboro for five years, during which time their last
three children were born. On December 8, 1770, Jacob mortgaged his land for
fifty pounds. Unable to meet the payment on the morgage, the court forced
Jacob out of his home in April, 1775.

The family next moved east to Parsonfield, Maine which area was just opening up
for settlement. In 1785, the family was still in Parsonfield

10

field, for the history of the town states that in that year Jacob “Schagel”
owned a potash works. It is not known when Jacob Scagel left Parsonfield.
Possibly, he turned over the potash works to his son, Jacob Jr., when the
latter returned from the Revolutionary War. He may have turned the business
over to his son, George. In those days, no recording of deeds was required
when property was transferred from father to son, so the possibility of
following the movement of people through transfer of property is made
difficult.

At the taking of the 1790 census, Jacob and Rachel Scagel were living in
Newbury, Orange County, Vermont. Official records there show that also in
Newbury, Vermont were Jacob’s sons, Jacob Jr., Elijah and William. No where is
mention made of George Scagel, Jacob’s son, being in Newbury.

George Scagel probably came to Waterbury from Saco, Maine as noted in the Bryan
family records. Later, George’s older brother, Jacob Jr., moved north to
Stanbridge East, Quebec. Also, later, Jacob and Rachel Scagel moved to
Waterbury. Later activity of Jacob is not known. He died March 18, 1817. We
have been unable to find a gravestone marking his place of burial. He was in
his 81st year, and his wife Rachel was nearly 84 years old. They had been
married for 62 years. Rachel continued to make her home with her son, George,
for another nineteen years.

Two of my grandfather’s brothers married two Scagel sisters from Standridge,
Quebec. They were second cousins. My second cousin Macie Bryan Evans is
descended from Jacob Scagel, from both her grandfather Denis Bryan and her
grandmother Mary Scagel Bryan.
