Bellamy family papers
1798-1910 (bulk 1812-1852)
The Bellamy family lived in Vergennes, Vermont, around the beginning of the 19th century, and were fairly prominent in local circles. Justus Bellamy served as a major during the American Revolution, and he had at least two sons: Edward and Aaron. In 1819, Edward moved to Canada, where he established a mill in 1824. Other members of the family eventually settled in Ohio, where Joseph Bellamy lived in the 1840s, and in Grattan, Michigan. Edward eventually returned to the United States and settled in Easton, Michigan, where he lived until at least 1880. Aaron Bellamy married Rilla Stowell; the couple had at least one child, Mary (m. Wolfe).
