    Notes 
    •       SUSANNA5 ADAMS, wife of Nathan Halladay was born July 11, 1778 at Suffield, Conn. but her family removed to Marlboro, Vt. when she was about five years old and she was brought up amid the hardships incident to pioneer life in Vermont.
            When about 10 or 12 years old, she was out with her younger brother Rufus who behaved badly and in order to control him she asked him if she should call a bear.  At that moment hearing a noise and looking around she saw a large bear climbing over a fence near her.  She had the presence of mind to seize her brother and finally made her way to the house unharmed.
             Upon the death of her husband in Buffalo she was left alone with her six children.
             Two of these, Rhoda the eldest and Lucius the youngest were taken sick and soon followed their father, and the widow with her four remaining children was left to make her way back to Vermont as best she could.  But Susanna Adams Halladay was equal to the occasion.
             Descended from the  Adams and Underwood families she inherited some of their indomitable spirit and perseverance. Her goods and probably her team were at the bottom of  Lake Erie and all her ready money had been used in the expenses incident to the sickness and death of three of her family.
             She was hundreds of miles from any one she knew and there were no swift means of communication as now between her and her old home.  In her trouble she wrote to her brother Capt. Simeon Adams who sent his team all the long distance from Marlboro, Vt. to Buffalo and brought home his sister and her family and helped them start again in life.  Let this act be recorded to the credit of Simeon Adams of Marlboro.
             After returning to Vermont the family necessarily separated. Henry learned the trade of a tanner at West Halifax, Vt., Willard was put upon a farm; Almira learned the tailor's trade, and Susan, the youngest, remained with her uncle Simeon Adams
      until her mother's second marriage.  Mrs. Halladay several years later married Henry Babbit, a farmer of Colerain, Mass. whom she survived.
             She lived afterwards with her son Willard, then a large lumber manufacturer at West Readsboro, VT. but finally went to live with her daughter, Mrs. Susan H. Wheeler at Rutland, Mass. where she died Dec. 29, 1870 aged 92 years and 5 months and was buried in the Wheeler lot in Rutland Rural Cemetery.
             Mrs. Halladay was a woman of ability and quick at repartee. When she was more than 80 years old a grandson who had just married brought his wife into her presence and introduced her, saying, "Well, Grandma, this is my wife.  What do you think of her?"
              The old lady quickly replied, "Well, I see that she has made one mistake already."
              "Oh! Grandma," said the grandson, "You are too smart for me." [6]
