The "Four Indians" of Alburgh, VT. vs. Burk, Vosburgh, Olena and Partlo 1863

The Albugh, VT Town Records (Page 593 of the Land and Misc. Records Book) DOES NOT list the "Four Indians" by name. The actual record Page 593 states:

"Oct. 1863 Four Indians were paid $110. Each. That total was $440.00 and that underneath that line:
George Burk was paid $100.00
Jacent Vosburgh was paid $300.00
Albert Olena was paid $300.00
and lastly:
Charles Partlo was paid $300.00 dollars
Total: $1,440.00"

The Town Record Page 593 clearly shows the Town Clerk record first the $440.00 paid to the Four Indians (not identified by name) and then the four other men (mentioned by name). The Town clear tallied the Four Indians Bounty amt. of $440.00; and then the Town Clerk tallied the $1,000.00 paid to the four men (mentioned by name) and in conclusion to the right in the actual historical record (page 593) he tallied up the total amount of $1,440.00 INDICATING that there were 8 men (Four unidentified by name Indians...and Four men who were identified by name).

The Four Indians (according to the historically documented record in the Land and Misc. Records DOES NOT list the Four Indians who fought in the Civil War as being Partlow, Vosburgh, Burk or Olena at all contrary to what some have said in various message boards.

A review of scanned images of the original records shows this to be the genealogical and historical reality.

Please do a comparative of what has been said in this particular genforum Partelo / Partlo / Partlow message board vs. what the acutal historical record shows and provides. The Partlow family in Franklin County, Vermont was NOT documented Indian, Native American, or Abenaki per the Alburg Town Records. The truthful historical documents are on for anyone to review and evaluate.

This research might help some Partelo descendants discern the factual genealogical historical truth vs. fiction and fantasy from others.
